After Columbia Records dropped the group from their roster list, they signed with Hollywood. Hollywood received the rights to distribute the single "Year 3000" which was also released on the group's first Hollywood Records album. The album also managed to sell 67,000 copies in the US. This was the entire initial shipment of the record. There was never a second shipment, since the band had been dropped by Columbia Records.
In August 2012, the Jonas Brothers announced the vinyl re-release of the album exclusively in the 2012 gift for premium members of Team Jonas along with a digital download with each vinyl album. The songs "What I Go to School For" and "Year 3000" are covers originally by English pop rock band Busted.
"Mandy" was released on December 27, 2005 as the first single from the album. "Year 3000" was released on March 16, 2006 as the second single from the album.
On November 5, 2005, Jonas Brothers began their first promo tour in support of the album. Their second tour, Jonas Brothers American Club Tour, promoted abstinence from illegal drugs. The tour consisted of gigs in clubs, and with small crowds. The tour started on January 28, 2006 and ended on March 3, 2006 with a total of 28 shows.
In August 2012, the album was made available on vinyl as an exclusive gift for renewing or new premium members of Team Jonas. The vinyl release also includes a digital download of the album and a thank you note from Kevin, Joe and Nick. Select copies were autographed by the brothers and mailed out randomly along with one of three Jonas Brothers turntables by Crossley Turntables. Like the CD release, copies of the vinyl re-release are also rare to find as well as expensive if sold on eBay.

"Mandy" is a song by American rock band Jonas Brothers. The song was released on December 27, 2005, as the first single from their debut studio album, It's About Time. The song is written about a friend named Mandy and featured on Zoey 101: Music Mix, the soundtrack for the show, Zoey 101, and featured in the TV movie, Spring Break-Up
Mandy was filmed into three music videos, all directed by Ondi Timoner.
Episode 1: Filmed at Pasadena High School in Pasadena, California. The school bell rings and everyone leaves. Nick notices Mandy (the title character, played by Samantha Summers) has dropped her phone. He picks it up and rushes through the hallway to the parking lot, where he sees Mandy with her boyfriend (played by Roderick Galloway) and his friends and Nick gives Mandy her phone. Mandy's boyfriend follows Nick after school, chasing him down the street in his car.
Episode 2: Nick runs onto the sidewalk and Mandy's boyfriend gets out of his car to look for him. He eventually gives up, only to see Nick in a car with his brothers, Joe and Kevin, who drive by laughing. Later that night, Mandy and her boyfriend are at the homecoming dance and are announced as homecoming King and Queen. The Jonases are also there. Mandy tries to leave but her boyfriend grabs her and kisses her ferociously. She pulls away and runs outside, then faced with the Jonas Brothers who offer her a ride home while Mandy's boyfriend watches them drive off. She walks in her house and she and her dad start fighting. Mandy runs out and her boyfriend, his friends pull up beside the Jonases' car and Mandy is unsure what to do.
Episode 3: The next day Mandy is out with her boyfriend, who is crushing a mailbox with a baseball bat. Later at school, Mandy returns a necklace to her boyfriend and appears to be breaking up with him. She finds Joe and Nick sitting by a tree and the three engage in light conversation. Her ex-boyfriend sees this and threateningly approaches. Mandy runs off to find Kevin and get in his car to drive to where Nick and Joe are. Kevin arrives and Nick and Joe get in the car and speed off. The brothers pick up two more girls and they all wave to Mandy's ex-boyfriend. They all go to a building where the brothers play the song. The episode ends with a sly, "The End?".
The Jonas Brothers also made another video which was exclusive for Yahoo.com. It shows them in Chicago and they just play their song while running away from security for playing in restricted places.
