People Order Our Patties is the seventh and final studio album by Massachusetts comedy rock boyband, Rectus Abdominus. Recorded between October 19 and November 14 2019, the album was originally given the release date of December 20, 2019 which the album had been completed in time for, but conflicts within the band led them and the label to delay the album until February 7, 2020. Following the abandonment of another album called DAFUQ, recorded in the summer of 2019, the band decided to part ways with label Epictime Records after only one album, returning to longtime partners Metacomet Records. People Order Our Patties shows a return to form for Rectus Abdominus, abandoning the concept driven post-hardcore influence and dark vibe of their previous album Rectus Abdominus Vs. The World, favoring shorter, more light-hearted rock songs reminiscent of the band's earlier work. Between the completion and the release of the album, founding bassist Jeff The Epic was kicked out of the band, and longtime guitarist Kenonio left on good terms to focus on family. Although a poor sales plagued the album upon release, the album is now somewhat of a cult classic, often being regarded as the band's most cohesive and concise album, especially compared to the bloated behemoth of an album that preceded it. Although considered by fans to be the band's finest work, Jackson The Epic has said in interviews that by the time the album was finally released, the band was pretty much completely broken up already. The album is the band's most collaborative since 2018's Comedy Is Dead, with all 5 members having input on the songwriting and every member having at least one song where they perform lead vocals. People Order Our Patties also shows a steep incline in production value from 2019's Rectus Abdominus Vs. The World, being their first release to incorporate a full set of drum microphones and a proper full size guitar amplifier, instead of the Ibanez GTA15R practice amp which had been used on all previous releases. In January of 2020, the band announced a massive tour in support of the new album called The Poop Tour, which was to take place in March of that year and featured support from Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, and BTS. Due to unknown reasons, the tour was quietly cancelled soon after the release of People Order Our Patties, although merchandise from the ill-fated tour is still available on the band's online merch store. Less than a month after the release of People Order Our Patties, Rectus Abdominus officially announced via social media that they had disbanded on March 5, 2020, exactly three years to the day since their formation.
