The five-track release debuted at number 23 on the Billboard 200 and also got to number 3 on the Independent Albums chart, number 5 on the Rock chart, number 2 on the Alternative Albums chart and number 3 on the Digital Albums chart.

"After a five-year separation, the trio reunited in 2011 and last year self-funded the EP Dogs Eating Dogs, which dropped as a digital-only release last December. The decision to release the track online wasn't so much built into a new media plan, but was rooted in "laziness," he joked. "We rushed to get the EP recorded, mixed and mastered in time for its release. Then we had a holiday, and forgot about the physical product. We are not good businessmen," he admitted. "We don't think like that. We didn't get a physical product out because we were too lazy to print them up."
