Joey Cape, Yotam Ben Horin, and Scorpios (featuring Joey Cape, Jon Snodgrass, Brian Wahlstrom, and Chris Cresswell) have all recorded and released full-lengths on One Week Records over the course of the last year. Today, we’re stoked to announce the release of all three of them on vinyl! They’re coming out one after another, beginning with Scorpios on July 28th, Joey Cape on September 1st, and Yotam Ben Horin on September 15th. (Orders that include Joey or Yotam will ship by mid-August!)
Here’s a quick rundown for those of you asking yourselves, “What is One Week Records and why is FAT selling these?” Well, our bud Joey Cape of Lagwagon launched a specialty, digital-only label a couple of years ago called One Week Records. You can read their story here. Once in a while, FAT band members like Joey, Chris Cresswell (The Flatliners), Zach Quinn (PEARS), or Yotam (Useless ID) will record a One Week Record. As fans of their work, sometimes we just gotta see it put to wax!
We’ve been pretty busy this year keeping you supplied with a heavy dose of killer new punk tunes. We decided we need a little holiday—well, actually—a Punk Rock Holiday. So, we’re heading over to Tolmin, Slovenia to check out a bunch of FAT bands playing this year at Punk Rock Holiday. We’ll also be bringing an exclusive super limited 10-song 10” comp for the festival, with 2 brand new songs on it! Have a look at the rad cover, courtesy of our buddy Chris Shary, which perfectly epitomizes Punk Rock Holiday! In addition to the exclusive comp, we’ll have other exclusive vinyl titles, 2 new Euro Record Store exclusives (limited to less than 100), plus some cool new merch for you. See ya in Slovenia.
Bad Cop/Bad Cop’s new album, Warriors, is getting a lot of love from the reviewers — just like we knew it would! In their brand new video for “Womanarchist,” a bunch of their fellow band friends share the love and join Bad Cop in standing up for women’s rights and human rights. Watch the video, premiering right now over at (the fortuitously named site) Bad Copy. Don’t forget to catch Bad Cop/Bad Cop (alongside label mates Strung Out) on the Vans Warped Tour this summer.
We’re super stoked to share this new Teenage Bottlerocket video with you for a few reasons. First, it is much-needed entertainment in these bleak times. Second, it was filmed at one of the greatest bars in Laramie, Wyoming—The Buckhorn! And finally, “Why the Big Pause” (originally by The Punchlines) is one of the coolest and funniest songs we’ve heard in years. It’s from their fantastic new album, Stealing the Covers, out on July 14th and available for pre-order now! In case you missed it, along with the new album of cover songs, the band recorded a 7"— Goin’ Back to Wyo—with two brand new TBR originals! Details here! Now, sit back and jump over to Uproxx to check out their terrific new video!
We’re gearing up for Montebello, Canada’s Rockfest this weekend! Stop by our booth for some new merch, music and our Rockfest 7” flexi-pack. Until then, check out our Spotify playlist of bands we’re stoked to see this weekend!
