The band will be supported by The Dollyrots and Patent Pending, however contrary to usual touring trends where London is included whilst other towns and cities are omitted from the schedule, Bowling For Soup will not actually be hitting London on this tour due to their playing the Vans Warped Tour at Alexandra Palace on November 10th.

Joey Burns had the following to say about the band’s decision to record the album in New Orleans:
We were talking about wanting to go to Europe and record, but we never get our stuff together in time to make plans that far in advance. So where do you go that is nearby and has a European feel? New Orleans.
