The album was recorded in late 2011, while the band was recording the cover of Bob Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.”  It was recorded at Joe Baresi’s House of Compression. Baresi handled recording and mixing. The album was produced by Greg, Brett and Baresi.
The album was announced on October 21, 2013. It was accompanied by a digital version of “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” 
The album was released on October 29th, 2013 on CD, LP, and digital through Epitaph.
It peaked at number 101 on the Billboard 200 and at number 7 on Billboard’s “Top Holiday Albums” in the United States.
Graffin: “…the songs are played in the style of punk rock. Maybe punk rock has become so respectable now that no one would bat an eyelash to hear a traditional Christmas song played in the punk style. But, part of the intention is that should be a jarring thing for the listener to hear. I think people like you and me, people who listen to Bad Religion songs, or to Slayer, or to Converge, it’s pretty palatable music. But, maybe for the local pastor or someone like that, maybe someone might raise an eyebrow.”
The artwork on the album is titled, "New Shoes," taken by Geralds Waller of Austria in 1946. It depicts an orphan receiving a pair of shows after World War II.
