We are pleased to announce the release date, tracklisting and cover art from the beloved hardcore punk band Paint It Black due out on August 18th. This new four song EP titled Surrender is part two of their 7â EPâs planned for the summer. The first, Amnesia was released by Bridge Nine in June and you can read about it here and hear a stream of the 7â here. Paint It Black are renowned for their live shows and lucky for us they have announced tour dates in September on the east coast and abroad so be sure to check them out!
If you are quick, you can procure a free button or perhaps one of the limited edition color vinyl versions floating around in the mailroom while supplies last, so act fast!
American Steel have posted the first track from their upcoming release, Dear Friends Gentle Hearts, out July 21st. Ring in the summer with this rousing, raucous tune, âEmergency House Partyâ. The band suggests some recommended listening activities right here.
NOFX are featured on The Warped Tour comp out on Side One Dummy. You can get your copy here, but you may want to hear what Fat Mike had to say about the wheelings and dealings that went into the âbusiness negotiationsâ first:
Hi everyone, here’s what happened: some people at Side One Dummy Records asked NOFX to be on the cover of the Warped Tour comp. We said “NO!” . Then they sent over some “Comp”-romising photos from our last trip to Japan that no one really needs to see. So we let them use a picture of me and Hefe for the cover. A week goes by and I get a call from them again. This time they want an unreleased song for the comp. I told them to go to hell. Then they sent over more photos. The next day NOFX went into the studio and recorded a new song for them. They liked it so much they only charged me $10,000 for the remainder of the photos. Thanks guys. You’re the best! Fat Mike
We are proud to announce we will be working with the crÃ¨me de la crÃ¨me of contemporary American hardcoreâa little band called Paint It Black. After releasing three full length albums, PIB has decided to return to the 7â format, as they explain here:
We feel really fortunate that we’ve been able to release 3 albums that have been both exciting for us, and also well-received by the kids and the press. That being said, we can’t think of a single hardcore punk band that has released more than 3 awesome full-length records, and we’re not nearly arrogant enough to imagine that we’ll be the first band to make that happen. The 7â EP has always been the ideal context for the kind of music we play, and so weâve decided to release music in that format for the foreseeable future. The most exciting thing about this decision is that we donât have to wait so long to release a new record, which lets us be more spontaneous and stay more intimately connected with the kids that support our band. So to sum up, we are stoked, and we hope you are too.
This well-spoken, passionate, technically formidable quartet will be releasing two 7â EPs this summer. The first will come out next week on Bridge Nine, the second, right here on Fat Wreck Chords, August 18th. It will be available on vinyl and as a digital EP. More info coming very soon.
