Fat Tour 2008 Leg #2 Tour Dates Announced!

We have just posted all the tour dates and ticket links for the Northwestern leg of the Fat Tour 2008 featuring NOFX, No Use For a Name and American Steel! You might be looking at the list below and think “That’s a pretty short leg” but sometimes things with a short leg are completely killer like those freaky mountain goats or Rivers Cuomo. Besides, he got that shit fixed after the Blue Album and try telling me how somebody with normal, boring legs could write a song as good as “Say It Ain’t So.” We’re going to post the first mp3 from the upcoming No Use for a Name record next week to get you ready for the start of the first leg of the tour. We’re cooking up some cool road diaries, podcasts, videos and contests for the tour and we’ll let you know about those soon. Here’s the dates:

May 2nd    Denver, CO - The Fillmore Auditorium
May 3rd    SLC, UT - In the Venue
May 4th    Missoula, MT - TBA
May 6th    Edmonton, Alberta - AgriCom - Hall B
May 7th    Calgary, Alberta - MacEwan Hall Ballroom
May 9th    Vancouver, BC - Commodore Ballroom
May 10th   Seattle, WA - Showbox Sodo
May 11th   Portland, OR - Crystal Ballroom

The Loved Ones Build & Burn out now! VOTE!

Happy Super Tuesday! If your state is having their primary today then you better go vote. If not then I guess just do whatever the hell you usually do and call it “Tuesday”.

Build & Burn is the second full length release from Philadelphia’s, The Loved Ones. The album was produced by Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Keinlen from the Bouncing Souls and features cameos from the Hold Steady’s Franz Nicolay (piano, Hammond B3 organ, harmonica, accordion, saw) and Tad Kubler (guitar). The new record hints at Americana rock n’ roll with expanded instrumentation, plenty of backing vocals and a thematic concept based on the album title. The band will soon be filming a video for the song “The Bridge” but until then you can catch them on the first leg of their US tour on the East Coast or even at one of their after parties. In their 6th studio video update (below) the band is on a constant search for “The Boss” but they could have just asked us for El Hefe’s phone number and saved themselves some time.

NOFX live LP now available, Propagandhi Classic Colored Vinyl & Fat Tour 2008 official dates

We’re really sorry about the new NOFX live LP being delayed so we decided to put it on sale along with the next installment of the Fat Classic colored vinyl series, *Propagandhi*’s How To Clean Everything, on conflict-free gold vinyl! I don’t even want to hear your sorry excuse for not being signed up for the Fat newsletter to get exclusive comments like this from Prop singer, Chris Hannah, about this classic Fat release:

“The best thing about this record was seeing Wayne Gretzky at the airport. Other than that it is notable only in that sales from this record paid for the security walls we put up around our mansions."

We also posted the official dates for the US Fat Tour 2008 featuring NOFX, NO USE FOR A NAME, AMERICAN STEEL and THE FLATLINERS and here’s some information about the shows…

After their globetrotting and general misadventures around the world, NOFX are home and they have just confirmed a proper U.S. tour. It kicks off on February 22nd at the House of Blues in Orlando, FL and stops in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, and—cue the trumpets—Texas! After ten years of Warped Touring the Lone Star state, NOFX are going to play club shows in Houston, El Paso, Austin, and Dallas. The tour will feature No Use For A Name as main support, with Canadian youngsters, The Flatliners, opening the Southern leg of the tour. American Steel will take over for the second Northwestern leg (dates coming real soon). The third leg of the tour will be in the Northeast and at this point it is a total mystery. The fourth and final leg will be closer to home and god knows when this will happen.

Other tidbits: No Use For A Name just got back from Fort Collins, Colorado where they recorded a new record with the legendary Bill Stevenson at the Blasting Room. They will be performing some new songs on tour long before the full length drops. Also, after pissing everyone off by fading out the longest punk song ever on their new live CD, NOFX will be performing “The Decline” in it’s entirety in cities where they haven’t played it before…and if they are sober enough.

All you Southern belles, click here to check out the dates & get your tickets online—we’ve even provided the links, m’ladies! Everybody else, look sharp, more show news coming soon!

PS: We have 50 copies of *NOFX*’s The Longest Line on white vinyl that we have left over and you can buy those here.
