The San Francisco-based pop punk band Set Your Goals first gained some notoriety after it performed as the backing band for American punk singer Vinnie Caruana for a select number of shows in the US and UK. Set Your Goals reached a buy-out agreement with Eulogy Recordings in August of 2008. The band parted on bad terms, with co-vocalist Jordan Brown issuing the following statement on AbsolutePunk.net: "These were not sent as bragging rights. Please do not buy Eulogy records, do not buy Set Your Goals merch from Eulogy's e-store. John has made an untraceable amount of money off of SYG's music and will continue to do so. We have never seen a dime. I have always said from day one that i don't do any of this for money, and i do not. But it does not sit well with me the amount of money he has kept from us (and many other bands). I could care less [sic] about seeing any of that money for myself, but i would rather it be with somebody or another band who deserves it more than John Wylie does. We cannot regain control of our Mutiny cd; the reset songs we will get back in another 3 years. For now he continues to milk Set Your Goals for what he can." Following the statement, co-vocalist Matt Wilson hinted that the band'd upcoming album would be self-released. However, in March 2009, the band announced its signing with Epitaph Records, which released Set Your Goals' second album, This Will Be the Death of Us, on July 21, 2009.
