The limited edition cover was featuring the beloved Olove symbol called The Heart which is a heart with 7 stitches which is well known to fans of Olove often referred to as Exploders! They are called this after the song Explode on both from the EP. From their base in Oslo they played their "3 concerts in 24 hours" London mini tour in 2007.
