Sorry for Partyin' is Bowling for Soup's seventh studio album. It was released on October 12, 2009. It debuted at #104 on the Billboard Top 200 and #47 on Rock albums.[4]



The band began working on the album in January 2009[5] in Austin, Texas by working with people like Linus of Hollywood, Scott Reynolds, Tony Scalzo, Parry Gripp and Kim Shattuck.[6][7] The band recorded for over a month recording 18 tracks and finished recording in early March 2009.[6][8] Afterward, the band left Austin to record the B-sides for the album in their hometown.

Bowling for Soup recorded 27 songs for the album as of June 2009.[9] On August 8, Jaret posted on twitter that the band had enough songs for a double album, but will only be putting 12-14 of those songs onto this album.

In promotion for the album, the band will embark on a tour entitled the "Party in Your Pants Tour."[10] The tour currently only has dates scheduled in the UK beginning on October 17, 2009 in Glasgow and ending on October 29, 2009 in London.[10]
