Did You Know People Can Fly? is the first full-length album by Kaddisfly.[3] The album was released December 12, 2003,[4] under the label Kaddisfly.[5] Aaron Tollefson, a musician who played guitar on the album, commented about the writing of the music, "when it came to writing this record, we wanted to wipe away everything people knew of us and resurface with a composition that couldn't be boxed, labeled, or formulaically packaged."[2] Beau Kuther, a fellow member of the group who contributed percussive talent to the album, observed, "We wanted to really challenge ourselves and write a record where every noise, texture, and color fit into the composition on a whole."[2] Kile Brewer, who contributed bass on the piece, emphasized the importance of the group's music staying fresh, "We are all of the same mind that if we are going to exist in this business for life, we will have to perpetually challenge ourselves, take risks, and never create the same record twice. The moment you grow static is the moment your music needs eyes."[2]


The album received a positive reception from CD Universe, where the review noted, "Ideas matched only with emotional substance, Did You Know People can Fly? weaves together the conceptual cinematic vision of a film score with an aural landscape of hard rock, jazz, classical, and soul."[2] The review from CD Universe concluded, "As Did You Know People Can Fly? is leaps and bounds from previous releases, the eclectic and versatile evolution of Kaddisfly will last long after the physical band is gone."[2]
