You’ve probably noticed we’ve been leaving clues for weeks about a new signing to the FAT family. Yeah, well, we’re not great at keeping secrets. Fortunately we can finally make this shit official! (Drum roll, please.) The latest addition to the FAT ranks is… Direct Hit! For those of you not in the know, they’re pretty much the best thing to come out of Milwaukee since Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, or beer. These Wisconsin pop punkers formed in 2007 and we’ve been fans since their inception. From their very first EP up through their latest LP, Brainless God, released in 2013, these guys have been banging out hits more consistently than Hank Aaron. Direct Hit have some shows coming up with NOFX and Mean Jeans and you can check out their new website to familiarize yourself with their tunes. Expect them to have a new full-length out by Summer too. It’s safe to say that 2016 just got a whole hell of a lot better.Here’s what vocalist/guitarist Nick Woods had to say about the signing:
“Fat Wreck defined my opinion of what ‘punk’ meant when I was an insecure teenager in the Midwest. So I guess in a lot of ways, as someone who still cares about music 15 years later, the label’s helped define my outlook on life in general. It’s incredible for me to be able to say our band is a small piece of that foundation now.”
