The band had released their previous album in a turbulent time in their history, when they didn't have a permanent guitarist. In late 2004, Aaron Guerra returned to the band. In 2008, Ted Kirkpatrick announced through the band's message board that the band's contract with Metal Blade Records had ended and that they were planning a new album. Bassist Steve Andino left the band during this period. Finally, in late 2010, the band announced a Kickstarter project that would allow fans to fund the next album, which was fully funded by January 2011. The band began the recording process in June 2011 with plans to release the album in summer of 2012.
The album was made available for pre-order on June 25, 2012 and digitally released to certain fans who funded the Kickstarter project on July 13, 2012. The album was released to the public on July 19, 2012 via iTunes, Amazon, and other online music sellers, and was released in CD format on August 15, 2012.
Reviews among Christian media have been largely positive. The Phantom Tollbooth gave the album 5/5 and Indie Vision Music rated it 4/5. Powermetal.de rated the album 8.0 out of 10, finding the album very good, but missing an adequate rhythm guitarist and vocalist.
