The album was produced and mixed by the band's former guitarist Josh Benton and Joe Johnston.

In support of the album, the group originally announced a 2020 spring tour to take place from March to May with Animals as Leaders, Issues, Veil of Maya, and Royal Coda, however this was postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing 2019-21 coronavirus pandemic.
