Following the success of their 2014 collaborative album Full of Hell & Merzbow, Full of Hell began planning other collaboration projects for the future, including one with The Body. In a March 2015 interview with Full of Hell vocalist Dylan Walker, he said: "[It'll] be a really cool thing, and again The Body are another band who are, really, kind of outside the metal scene. It'll be something pretty unexpected; we're actually on tour with them when we get back from Japan, and it's going to be kind of cool because we're going to record the collaboration, without writing anything, right at the end of the tour. I'm really excited to see what we're going to come up with."
In February 2016, The Body and Full of Hell made the closing track "The Little Death" available for online streaming to promote the album. The title is a reference to the French saying "la petite mort," which translates to "the little death" and used to be a reference to a fainting fit but in modern times is used to describe the sensation after an orgasm. The track concludes with an audio sample from the 2010 HBO film You Don't Know Jack starring Al Pacino as the physician-assisted suicide activist, Jack Kevorkian. Weeks later, the group streamed the track "The Butcher"—a song originally written and recorded by Canadian folk musician Leonard Cohen and originally released on his 1969 second studio album, Songs from a Room. On the week of One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache's release, the collaborative group released a music video for the track "Fleshworks".
Upon its release the album was met with widespread acclaim with many reviewers praising the cohesive collaboration between the two bands. At Metacritic, the album received an average score of 78, based on 6 critics, which indicates "generally favourable reviews". JJ Anselmi from The A.V. Club wrote, "While other groups that release so much material typically lapse into mediocrity at some point, both of these bands are seemingly inexhaustible wells of brilliance."
In a review for Pitchfork Media, writer Colin Joyce lauded the collaboration as a success saying, "Even as they explore alien aesthetics, the Body and Full of Hell are constantly finding ways to uphold the spirit of each other's work."
