The Academy Is... held a contest for releasing new tracks, email addresses were entered on a page off the main website page and 8 winners were selected at random to receive a song off the album and also a call from the band and a free signed copy of Fast Times at Barrington High. The contest winners were encouraged to post the songs over the internet and the winner with the most song listens would receive a special unknown prize.
The band performed "About a Girl" and "Summer Hair = Forever Young" on the VansWarped Tour and their Australian tour with Panic! at the Disco and Cobra Starship. Hot Topic released two new The Academy Is... T-shirts, one of which comes with a code for the free download of an acoustic version of "His Girl Friday".
The song "Beware! Cougar!" ends with the line, "Don't write a word, 'cause I won't reply". This line was originally from a song by The Format called "I'm Ready, I Am".
The title of the song "After the Last Midtown Show" is a reference to the band Midtown. This is a band that Gabe Saporta, who contributed backing vocals to "Crowded Room", was in before Cobra Starship.
