"Smooth Criminal" was released as downloadable content for the Rock Band series of video games on May 5, 2009. The rest of the album has been licensed for release on the Rock Band Network over the course of 2011–12, starting with "Movies" and "Courage" and continuing with three songs per quarter until the full album is released.
Their first single, "Smooth Criminal", was a cover of Michael Jackson's song of the same name, which started to bring popularity to the band. The song "Wish" was featured on the video game soundtrack of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, and "Courage" was featured on the video game soundtracks of Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder and ATV Offroad Fury 2.
Originally, the band made a small-budget video for the song "Movies" (as they were still unknown). This was their intended first single. According to the band, they had never intended for "Smooth Criminal" to be a single. A radio station played the song (without permission from the band) and they received positive feedback. Instead of taking action against the radio station, they decided to accommodate the listeners and they quickly released their "Smooth Criminal" video and withdrew their "Movies" video. When it was time for a second single, they shot the current "Movies" video. There were a total of 3 videos made for this track.
The album was recorded and mixed at NRG Recording in North Hollywood.
The album has been certified Platinum in the United States for sales of over 1,000,000 units.
