The End of an Error is the second album by pop-punk band Houston Calls, released on October 14, 2008, on Drive-Thru Records, the final album released on the label before they went on hiatus.[2][3] The band began recording demos for the album in 2007 as a follow-up to their debut album A Collection of Short Stories. Previously signed to Rushmore Records, the band signed to Drive-Thru to release their new record. The album was recorded over a one-month span in the spring of 2008 at The Waiting Room Studios in North Hollywood, California. Later that summer, the band revealed the official title and track listing, as well as the final release date.[4] and in mid-2008 revealed that the song "Life Won't Wait" will be the album's first single.[5]
