The album also featured a bonus 7 inch vinyl record as a special gift when pre-ordering through a select dealer. The disk contained an alternate version of "Indonesia" and a cover of the NOFX song, "Linoleum".

A second 7 inch vinyl called O Come, O Come, Emmanuel was released on November 10th, 2009 by August Burns Red's former label, CI Records.

Lyrical ThemesEdit

The song "Indonesia", which features guest vocals from Tommy Giles Roger of Between the Buried and Me, was made as a tribute to David Clapper, a missionary that died in a plane crash in Indonesia. He lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the city that August Burns Red originated in.
