The countdown is on for our annual trek to Gainesville, FL to attend The Fest! We’ve made some merch, and we’ll be slinging it in-person at the Fest 11 Flea Market, 11 days from today! So, come hang out and grab our Fest-exclusive record containing 11 songs from Fat’s 2012 releases (and one from 2013!). Be prepared for a variety of killer colored vinyl variations (with quantities in multiples of 11, of course!), and exclusive blue ribbon artwork from our Black Axe buddy Richard Minino. This 10” is a super limited pressing, and will only be sold on Friday from 12-6PM!
Alternative Press is premiering the new Useless ID video for “New Misery” from their latest full length, Symptoms. Watch it here, go download the track for free, and catch them on the Fat Tour 2012 with The Flatliners, Dead To Me and Lagwagon! We have a couple Fat Tour contests going, check them out here and here.
We are thrilled to announce that Snuff is back where they belong, here on Fat Wreck Chords! Snuff’s first studio album in nearly a decade is called 5-4-3-2-1-Perhaps! and will be released early next year, but with our pre-order AND digital available very soon! Luckily you don’t need to wait ‘til then to hear some new Snuff, because the real news of the day is that we have their brand new single In the Stocks available for PRE-ORDER, and if you order it now, you’ll immediately receive the music digitally! The A-side contains the album’s lead track, and is truly an instant Snuff classic. And speaking of classics, the B-side contains an exclusive, brand new acoustic version of the classic Demmamamussabebonk song “Sunny Places”! So get in the stock, err, on the stick, and order your copy today.
It’s release day for the new Cobra Skulls Eagle Eyes 7” and Less Than Jake’s Borders & Boundaries reissue. Listen to the new Cobra Skulls single on our player and go here to read a new review. The band is currently on tour with the Riverboat Gamblers and will be debuting the Eagle Eyes video soon! Less Than Jake’s classic Borders & Boundaries gets the reissue treatment with demo tracks, a DVD with the album performed live in its entirety (plus more!), with Horsebites art treatment and tour story liner notes. Click on the album covers below for more details and to order your copies!
Wow, as if one Less Than Jake release isn’t enough for one month, we’ve got another! Over the last year, Less Than Jake sold a couple new EP’s on tour. Unfortunately, with the reach of the new EP’s limited to those who could attend a show, and with some of their strongest material in years, it seemed like a proper album was in order. So the band assembled the two EP’s, added 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks, and re-sequenced everything into one cohesive record, Greetings and Salutations. Pre-order for all formats starts NOW! Orders will ship as soon as we get our stock in early December, but the digital will deliver to you on October 16th!
