To promote the album, Xilent sent out a bunch of cryptic tweets at the beginning of 2019, with the hashtag #wearedust. Many fans speculated that this hinted towards a new release, specifically an album. The inclusion of Monstercat in the tweets also made it likely the project would be released on that label.

The first single from the album, You Rise, was released on 28 March 2019, and made it Xilent's first solo release that wasn't part of a compilation since 2016's EP Your System.

The second single from the album, The Darkness, came out a month later on 18 April 2019. This marked a return to Xilent's signature glitch / melodic dubstep sound he became known for. This single is also featured in the video game Rocket League.

Fans quickly noted the similarities between the artworks for these two singles, and that they pieced together perfectly. Speculation about an incoming EP/LP release quickly grew. Xilent confirmed these rumors by announcing the album on 18 May 2019, only 2 days before its release, along with a teaser video, showcasing small snippets of each song.
