"At Your Funeral" charted at No. 79 in the UK, No. 71 in Scotland and No. 16 on the UK Indie chart. After the success of Stay What You Are, Saves the Day signed to Dreamworks Records, who co-released their next studio album, In Reverie, with Vagrant Records.

In April 2022, Saves the Day was removed from Equal Vision Records current artists roster without a formal announcement made by the label regarding their decision.
