Originally planned for a June release,[3] before being pushed back to August,[4] then early September due mixing delays.[6] Between late June and mid-August, the group went on the 2002 edition of Warped Tour.[7] Last Stop Suburbia was eventually released on October 8, 2002 through Drive-Thru.[8]

Last Stop Suburbia charted at number 9 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart.[9] The album would go on to sell 80,000 copies.[10] Reviewing the album for AllMusic, Kurt Morris said the album was full of "upbeat, poppy songs" matched with "nice melodies and songs about girls and rock & roll."[1] Morris also said it was "typical Drive-Thru Records pop-punk" fodder.[1] BuzzFeed included the album at number 30 on their "36 Pop Punk Albums You Need To Hear Before You F——ing Die" list.[11]
