Jump over to Alternative Press to watch a brand new lyric video from Good Riddance for their politically charged and ultra-catchy “Running on Fumes.” A deep cut from the brand new Peace In Our Time album, its lyrics recall themes of classic GR tunes like “Last Believer” and “There’s No ‘I’ in Team.” For insight into these and the rest of the lyrics on Peace in Our Time, read vocalist Russ Rankin’s track-by-track descriptions. Don’t miss them on tour; they’ll be performing this Saturday at Groezrock and then returning home for a stint of shows including San Francisco and their home town of Santa Cruz! The band will have a unique colored vinyl edition of the new record at Groezrock so be sure to hit their booth along with the Fat booth!
Fat Wreck Chords is 25!!! A quarter of a century?? We can hardly believe it ourselves! Who would have thought that something that started all those years ago in Mike and Erin’s kitchen would still be around today! We’ve been through weddings and divorces, births and deaths, rehabs and reintoxications, and we are still pumping out some of the most influential punk rock around. After 25 years, we think we’ve earned the right to throw a proper party and celebrate the fact that we are old! So, starting on August 6th a bunch of our bands will be playing together all across North America on the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years tour. To cap it off there will be a massive two-day blowout festival in our hometown of San Francisco, where we will shut down the streets and blast out the tunes. Here’s our portly president, Fat Mike, with the official announcement:
Stay tuned, because the official Fat Wrecked For 25 Years tour will have additional bands added, plus surprise bands added to specific shows. Come out and celebrate with us!
