Montreal! We’re coming for you this weekend. We’re excited to bring our roving Fat Wreck Chords record store to Pouzza Fest for the first time ever! Pick up some cool records and merch at our tent in between all the great bands!
face to face’s Say What You Want single is officially out today! Head to Bandcamp, Spotify, or Apple Music to listen. If you missed the brand new video for the title track, check it out here. Then, grab your copy today. Be sure to catch face to face live as they’ve just kicked off their Econolive ’17 Tour. If you nab the VIP package, you’ll get a special limited-edition flexi containing another Protection outtake song! Don’t miss out!
Also out today are two other dynamite 7”s: the first vinyl pressing of Hi-Standard’s new EP, Another Starting Line, and an Original Demos Series entry for No Use for a Name. These are vinyl-only releases, so you’ll have to order a copy. Details for all three new 7”s are here.
The Dirty Nil’s Minimum R&B is finally out! Head to Spotify or Apple Music to listen to the entire album. Then, pick up your copy today! If you live outside the U.S., please go to Dine Alone Records to procure your vinyl, CD, or digital album. After you’re sufficiently amped up by the record, check the tour dates, and do NOT miss The Dirty Nil live! They’re tearing up Europe right now, followed by an extensive run in their native Canada with The Flatliners. Psst…word on the street is they have an epic tour announcement in the works, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes have been more active than ever in 2017! With the release of their new retrospective— Rake It In: The Greatestest Hits —and their sold out shows across the continent, we wouldn’t blame them if they needed to take a break. However, they’re going on the road again in May, with a string of dates that culminates in their (mostly) annual slot at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas! If the couple of rare b-sides on Rake It In didn’t slake your thirst for new Gimmes cover tunes, you’re in luck, as New Noise Magazine is giving you one more! The Gimmes grace the flexi subscriber cover of the new issue, which contains an exclusive flexi-disc single with a never-before-heard Gimmes tune, called “For the Good Times.” Written by Kris Kristofferson, (as was this mega-hit for Johnny Cash) and popularized by Ray Price, this country classic was recorded Gimmes-style during the Love Their Country album sessions, but didn’t make it past the “rough mix” stage. It still sounds great to us, though! If you don’t own a record player…um, why not?! Okay, okay…so, unlike us, you aren’t attached to spinning plastic discs for your musical enjoyment? Not to worry, just head to the FAT YouTube channel to listen to “For the Good Times,” and then go get your magazine & flexi!
