|Singles from The Weekend: Friday|
The EP was originally intended to be a mini-LP, and was to be the first part of The Weekend series, with Saturday and Sunday following. However, as a large number of songs were written, the band decided to release a full-length self-titled album instead. On November 12, five days before its official release, the band streamed the entire EP on their MySpace page.
The second single from the EP was "She Likes (Bittersweet Love)". In April 2010, the band had posted multiple teaser videos on their YouTube account in preparation for the release of the full music video for the song, which was later released on April 19. In May and June, the band went on the Bamboozle Road Show 2010 tour.
