DOWN's video for the song "On March The Saints" made its "Headbanger's Ball" debut on November 17, 2007 on MTV2. This episode also featured a piece with singer Phil Anselmo in which he compared the world of boxing to playing music.
"Over the Under" was released on September 25 through ILG/Warner Music Group (one day earlier internationally via Roadrunner Records). The LP was issued in Europe as a limited-edition digipack CD featuring the bonus track "Invest in Fear".
