The earliest release date for the album was set for North America on April 17, 2007.
This is the last new material to feature Michael Nicklasson as their bassist before leaving in August 2008 and the last release to be recorded at Studio Fredman.
This album marked a few returns of previous quirks the band had done in the past - the song "Inside the Particle Storm" marks the return of Sundin writing lyrics again since "Tongues" from The Mind's I, Mikael Stanne utilizes clean vocals in addition to his usual growled vocals on "Misery's Crown" since "In Sight" from Haven (Reissue) and a guest female vocalist on "The Mundane and the Magic" since "Undo Control" from Projector.
A limited edition of the album includes a bonus DVD with live songs, behind the scene footage, Character's "The New Build" promo video, and the "Focus Shift" video clip. In addition, the limited edition disc features an extended booklet layout, an alternative cover artwork, and includes also a free Dark Tranquillity patch.
An expanded edition was released in North America on May 27 and was scheduled for Worldwide release on June 23, 2008.
