Best Intentions is the debut studio album by American rock band We Are the In Crowd.

Background[edit]

"This Isn't Goodbye, It's BRB" was written for inclusion on the band's first EP, but was rejected.[1] The bridge section was used for "Carry Me Home", resulting in a new version of the song being written for Best Intentions.[1]

Release[edit]

The record's lead single, "Rumor Mill", was released July 26, 2011.[2] The band announced the album title and its release date on August 3 and allowed pre-sale orders for the album the same day.[3] Best Intentions was released on October 4, 2011 through Hopeless Records. In June and July, the band supported Taking Back Sunday on their US tour.[4]
