A brief clip of "Faceless and Tired" was included in a video posted by Omar on Facebook in August while in Korea with At the Drive-In. "Un Recuerdo" revisits the penultimate track "Avión Apestoso", from 2012's Octopus Kool Aid. "Still Not Breathing" was partially featured in his 2010 film debut The Sentimental Engine Slayer. The song "Tlaquepaque" is named after the neighbouring municipality in Jalisco where Rodríguez-López lived in at the time of recording.

"Faceless and Tired" was uploaded in advance as the album's single.
