History

The band began working on the album in January 2009[9] in Austin, Texas by working with people like Linus of Hollywood, Scott Reynolds, Tony Scalzo, Parry Gripp and Kim Shattuck.[10][11] The band recorded for over a month recording 18 tracks and finished recording in early March 2009.[10][12] Afterward, the band left Austin to record the B-sides for the album in their hometown.

Bowling for Soup recorded 27 songs for the album as of June 2009.[13] On August 8, Jaret posted on twitter that the band had enough songs for a double album, but will only be putting 12-14 of those songs onto this album.

In promotion for the album, the band embarked on a tour entitled the "Party in Your Pants Tour."[14] The tour only had dates scheduled in the UK beginning on October 17, 2009, in Glasgow and ending on October 29, 2009, in London.[14]

According to frontman Jaret Reddick in his ninth Bowling for Soup podcast, "No Hablo Inglés" was supposed to be released to radio stations in January 2010 as the album's first single. However, Bowling for Soup was dropped from Jive Records shortly after the release of Sorry for Partyin' and because of this, songs like "My Wena" and "No Hablo Inglés" that had released music videos were not released as radio singles.[8]

My Wena

The song "My Wena" first previewed on May 5, 2009, on the Lex and Terry show. A music video for the song was filmed and the video was released on July 21, 2009.[2] The song was released to iTunes on July 28, 2009.[18] An EP featuring the song, titled the My Wena EP was released digitally August 7, 2009.[17] A clean version of the "My Wena" video (later titled the "Puppy Version") was released on the band's official YouTube page on August 28, 2009.[19]

No Hablo Inglés

The song "No Hablo Inglés" first premiered to members on the BFS Army site to those who had contributed, the page claims this is the first single.[20]

The music video for the song is a parody of the As seen on TV infomercials. In the video, Jaret Reddick stands in front of a TV studio audience and portrays a motivational speaker offering his "fool-proof" solution to any problem – simply reply "No Hablo Inglés" (Spanish for "I don't know English") and the problem disappears. The video features a telephone number (which answers to a Bowling for Soup fan line) and an address (a private mailbox at a UPS Store in Flower Mound, Texas, located south of Denton).
