How to Ruin Everything is the sixth studio album by the punk rock band Face to Face, released in 2002 (see 2002 in music). In August 2002, the band went on the Vagrant America arena tour, alongside other Vagrant Records bands. From June to August 2003, the group went on the 2003 edition of Warped Tour. This was their last album before their 4-year hiatus from September 2004 to January 2008.
As of the release date, How to Ruin Everything was Face to Face's only album since their 1992 debut Don't Turn Away without Chad Yaro on guitar. The band remained as a three-piece, marking the first time in over a decade that Face to Face had recorded and played live as a trio.
