The mixtape was released for free on April 25, 2011 through the group's official website, thirdworlds.net. It was simultaneously released through iTunes. The track "Guillotine" was released through iTunes on August 3, 2011. "Guillotine" has become one of the band's most recognized songs, with over eight million YouTube views on their music video as of November 8, 2018. Other tracks released as music videos include "Known for it", "Culture Shock", "Lord of the Game", "Spread Eagle Cross the Block", "Takyon (Death Yon)", and "Beware."
The cover of the album is somewhat of a mystery, even to members of the band. According to Andy Morin, "That’s a photograph that one of our members carried in their wallet for roughly 10 years straight. It’s a power object." The photo was eventually identified as "Bearded Man at Oenpelli", taken by Douglass Baglin in 1968. Reddit user u/ebbsey provided a scan of the original image as well as an alternate angle of the same shot.
The album was later released exclusively through the band's website in vinyl, compact disc and cassette formats.
