Some call today Good Friday, but today we’re calling it Groez Friday! That’s right, this year marks Groezrock’s 25th anniversary and we’re charting a course for Meerhout, Belgium on April 29th and 30th to celebrate! So hop aboard the Groez Cruise and swing by the Fat Wreck Chords ship to pick up our 2nd exclusive Groezrock 10” comp Fat Music For Wrecked People: Groez Cruise 2016! The artwork is by Horsebites who creates all our Fest 10” comps. The comp itself will have a boatload of new and unreleased songs including one from an unannounced signing! Who could it be?! We’ll also have some exclusive merch and other treasured items from our San Francisco mothership to keep you afloat.
In addition to our store being there, tons of past and present Fat Wreck Chords bands will be taking the stage: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, face to face, Mad Caddies, Sick Of It All, Less Than Jake, Dillinger Four, Night Birds, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, PEARS Rancid and The Dirty Nil! It’s like a Fat Wrecked For 25 Years show Groezrock style!
We love Belgium and nothing is going to keep us away.
