The second single from the album, "Naturally" was released on December 11, 2009 along with a music video for digital download. The music video was shot on November 14, 2009 and premiered on December 11, 2009. The single debuted at #39 and later peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has thus far peaked at #18 in the Canadian Hot 100. It is the band's biggest hit to date and first top 40 hit beating out their first single "Falling Down" and also first number one hit on the "Billboard Hot Dance/Club Songs". "Naturally" had its highest peak in Hungary, Ireland, and UK, where it peaked at number 7 on all three charts, becoming the band's first Top Ten hit.
They have finished their House of Blues Tour and their Kiss & Tell Tour, and are currently on their European Promo Tour. On March 9, 2010 The Scene released their EP Naturally (The Remixes).

The band's second studio album will be released on September 28, 2010.
