Background and recording

The band recorded the album at Seattle's London Bridge Studios in Seattle, WA, with producer Rick Parashar who Richie Birkenhead described as "the most down to earth, unpretentious, coolest guy in the world." The band spent three weeks recording the album. In an interview, Birkenhead said, "There are a few layers, like on some songs we have an acoustic guitars, or on "Regarding Earthlings" there is a tamboura way back in the mix. Also on the song "May I", I play a Wurlitzer."

Release and reception

The opening track on the album, "Mutate Me," was released as music video, directed by Fred Stuhr. The second single, "T.A.I.L." was also released as a video, directed by Noah Bogen. The track fared well on radio, climbing to #39 on the Billboard Single chart in 1996.

Ultimately the album failed to make an impact on the charts, with the band blaming the label for "terrible distribution and promotion." The album is currently unavailable in the iTunes Music Store, which Birkenhead blames on Hollywood Records, saying the label "deliberately shelved and deleted stuff from catalogs."
