The wait is over, LAGWAGON’s much anticipated epic new record, HANG, is out today and you can listen to it in its entirety here or below! One thing we know how to do properly is throw a party and today we’ll be hosting a listening party to celebrate the release of Hang. The party starts at 8PM and ends at 11PM at Above DNA at 375 11th St. in San Francisco. There will be a meet & greet from 8 to 9 where you can pick up the new album and get it signed by the band! Then, just hang out with us and the band, have a few beverages and listen to the new album. We have closed the RSVP list but that doesn’t necessarily mean you missed out. If you RSVP’d but don’t show up before 9:00, we’ll start giving those spots away to walk-ups. For the rest of North America, head here to view their upcoming tour dates with Swingin’ Utters! Check out a new review, read a new interview with vocalist Joey Cape, then order your copy today.
Have you ordered your copy of the new Swingin’ Utters album, Fistful of Hollow yet? Well, today is the day because not only can you grab it here, but you can listen to another brand new song—“I’m Not Coming Home”—compliments of Under The Gun Review. Don’t miss them on tour with LAGWAGON, a run that commences in exactly two weeks and winds its way throughout North America. Don’t miss it!
Mark your calendars! On Tuesday, October 28th, we will be hosting a listening party to celebrate the release of Hang, the first new Lagwagon album in nine years! It’s from 8pm to 11pm at Above DNA (directly above the DNA pizza joint) at 375 11th St. in San Francisco. There will be a meet & greet from 8 to 9 where you can pick up the new album and get it signed by the band! Then just hang out with all of us, have some beers, and listen to Hang! Space is somewhat limited, so RSVP with your full name to
Lagwagon@fatwreck.com to secure your spot. (And if you don’t live in the Bay Area and can’t make it, PLEASE don’t RSVP!) And don’t forget to get your tickets to the Lagwagon tour with Swingin’ Utters, November 9th at Slim’s in S.F. and 29 more shows throughout North America!
We love October! Why? Well that’s when we get our summer here in San Francisco, so it’s beer-drinkin’ weather (though really, what weather isn’t?!). Plus, Fest is just around the corner, our scrappy hometown baseball club is overachieving again, we just debuted incredible new Lagwagon and Swingin’ Utters songs, and we’ve released two very different but equally killer records.
First up, CJ Ramone’s debut release on Fat, Understand Me? The title track is culled from his upcoming full-length Last Chance to Dance November 25th—and the exclusive b-side is a cover of Black Flag’s “Rise Above,” featuring guitar and background vocals by Dez Cadena of Black Flack and the Misfits. Thanks to all of you, we’ve already sold out of the first pressing! So you’ll have to wait a bit to get your hands on a copy if you haven’t already. For now, you can still listen to Understand Me?
Next, we have the vinyl edition of the first solo effort from Chris Cresswell of The Flatliners that first appeared digitally via One Week Records. These ten acoustic songs showcase an introspective prowess, displaying Chris Cresswell’s versatility as a songwriter. Proof, as they say, is in the pudding, so do yourself a favor and listen to Meet Me in the Shade. Then, order your copy today!
If a brand new song off LAGWAGON’s upcoming album, Hang, doesn’t get your blood moving on a Monday, nothing will. Today, Revolver Magazine is premiering the album’s leadoff tracks, a one-two punch of “Burden of Proof”—the poignant introduction to the entire album—followed by “Reign,” an instant Lagwagon classic and a total ripper. All Hang pre-orders come with two BONUS TRACKS and a DVD; head over to grab your copy today! Then, check the dates for their upcoming North American tour with label-mates, the Swingin’ Utters. The tour kicks off next month and trust us, you don’t want to miss it. Dates and tickets here.
