The band's first single, released November 11, 2010, was "If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is." An official music video was uploaded to the band's YouTube channel on December 2 with the uncensored, short film version also being made available on their official website. On December 6, 2010, they released their second single, "Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm." With these two songs being the band's only official singles, they went on their Rise From the Ashes Tour across North America with Eyes Set to Kill and New Medicine.

On April 27th, 2012, the day after Craig Owens rejoined Chiodos.. the band released this message:
"To our loyal fans and friends,
After much thought and consideration we (Matt Good, Nick Martin and Aaron Stern) have decided to announce that we will be moving on from D.R.U.G.S. This decision has not been easy to make, and we want to express how grateful we are for all of you who have supported us and made this the incredible experience it has been over the past couple of years. We’ll always look back on our time in this band with pride, and have no regrets about the music we’ve made or the people we’ve made it with. We want to thank everyone who has believed in us, and we hope you’ll keep believing in us. We look forward to the future, and we know we’ll be seeing you again soon, no matter where our paths lead next.
With love and gratitude,

- LyricsSome friends, you left me hanging
In a room with a noose and a chair
You told me to stay put
And reminded me why I was there
Cold-blooded and misguided
The locusts took over my brain.
I'm not living for you,
I'm just living so chill with your games.
You hope for sun, I want rain.
- LyricsWe all know,we all know by now
That you're the only thing you talk about
So forgive me for bragging out loud
I tried to reason with myself
Tell me what could I have done
- LyricsTalk won't work this out
I don't need to share
I just need to scream
So stop telling me
I'm not the man that I should be
- LyricsDesperation before I hit the ground
Reaching out for something, we lost it all before
And we still want something more, we want it all, now
Can't make you shake the way that I do
Can't make you love the way that you're supposed to
