The album was released on 25 January 2010. Fans who pre-ordered the album through the official website received a signed copy a few days early, with their name included on a mini poster inside the case.

Mic Check is set to be the next single from the album, to be released 12 April 2010.


The album critics has been generally mixed.[2] Drowned in Sound stated that "This aggressive tone... breaks new boundaries in something absolutely ridiculous", whilst NME feels "James Smith is in the throes of an aneurysm. By the end of ‘For the Masses’ you might well be wishing one on yourself just for sweet relief." Both reviewers gave the album 3 out of 10 stars.
