On April 26, 2006, it was announced that the Lemonheads had signed to Vagrant Records. Vagrant founder Rich Egan explained, "Nobody writes songs like Evan Dando, nobody sings likes him." The group's new lineup consisted of original member Evan Dando and Descendents/All bassist Karl Alvarez and drummer Bill Stevenson. It was also revealed that the band was working on an album due for release later in the year.
The Lemonheads features contributions from Josh Lattanzi on bass, the Band's Garth Hudson on keyboards, and Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis on lead guitar. "Steve's Boy" is dedicated to William A. Stevenson, Bill Stevenson's father.
On July 6, 2006, The Lemonheads was announced for release, and the track listing (sequenced by Elizabeth Moses, Dando's wife at the time) was revealed; it was released on September 26. In November and December, the band went on a tour of the U.S.
