Background[edit]

Development[edit]

When the band's mockumentary television series was commissioned for a second season, the boys' mother Polly Draper asked her sons to record a new album. Initially, the siblings started to write new songs in 2007. Nat Wolff wrote the title's hit track, "I Don't Want to Go to School", after pestering his parents to stay home from school, because if he did he would write a song. Subsequently, Nat wrote the song and then he was sent to school anyway.

Recording[edit]

The band began recording their new album in mid-2007. The songs were recorded for the second season of The Naked Brothers Band television series. Recording took as short as three months, which ended in October 2007.

Release[edit]

The album was slated for an April 2008 release, just five months after their debut album, "The Naked Brothers Band". Nat and Alex released two versions, the normal album and a fan pack edition, including two bonus tracks, a poster with lyrics and a DVD with behind the scenes.

Singles[edit]

The album released one single, the title track, I Don't Want to Go to School. The single was released on April 3, 2008 along with a music video, which features various clips from Season 2.
