It was released on July 7, 2009 by Polyvinyl Records digitally and as a CD (limited to 3,000 copies).[1] The album was said to ship on June 26, 2009, but was sent out a week earlier as Polyvinyl received them. The EP's cover art was designed by UK illustrator David Blanco.[2] The majority of songs can all be found on Japanese Owen releases, and the last track is from a compilation 2x7".
