Snails is the second EP and third release by American rock band The Format. The EP was created to be sold at shows while The Format were on tour with Taking Back Sunday and Jimmy Eat World. It also became available on iTunes. Physical copies of the album came with a promotional code to download 2 additional tracks from The Format's website. The EP includes two new songs (four if you count the free downloads) and acoustic versions of three tracks from 2003's Interventions + Lullabies.


The Format intended to include "Your New Name" and "Dear Boy" on physical copies of the EP.[citation needed] These tracks were recorded with a different producer than the rest of the EP and due to contractual conflicts, could not be included. The band instead gave away a promotional code with copies of the EP, which allowed you to download the songs for free from their website. Because of this, most people consider the songs to be tracks 6 and 7 on the EP.[citation needed] Digital versions of the EP suffered from the same contractual problems, but couldn't accommodate the promotional code. Anyone who purchases the EP digitally will only have access to the first 5 tracks. The outro track with the credits plays a digitized version of "Spanish Flea" by Herb Alpert in the background
