Teenage Bottlerocket’s latest pop-punk masterpiece, Freak Out! comes out on July 3rd, but you can pre-order the album on LP, CD or digital format, straight from the source, right now! And with the new Fat Digital Store, when you order the record on a physical format, you will be e-mailed a link to download a digital copy of the album ONE WEEK before release date. If you order the digital album for only $8, same thing, you’ll get your download a week early. With songs like Headbanger, Cruising for Chicks, Necrocomicon, and Radical, how can you possibly go wrong? This is TBR’s best record yet. Get it now.
And we’ve got some killer combos for you too. Pick up a copy of Freak Out! on colored vinyl +digital along with a t-shirt & 12" bumper sticker for only $28. Or get it on CD +digital with the t-shirt & bumper sticker for only $22. Or streamline it all and get a shirt & digital album for just $20.
NOFX just wrapped up the recording of their new album. While that won’t be released until the fall, we’ve got a brand new single to tide you over til then: My Stepdad’s a Cop and My Stepmom’s a Domme out June 19th. Two brand new NOFX songs, recorded a couple months before they began work on the new album.
And since the Fat Digital Store officially launched last week, we’re gonna put it to good use. When you pre-order your copy of the NOFX single on vinyl, you’ll get an instant download of the 2 new songs! Or if you don’t need more plastic in your life, you can get the 2-song digital single for $2, exclusively in the Fat Store.
Better yet, we have a sweet combo package for you that includes an instant download, a black 7”, T-shirt and a NOFX 45 adapter (did we mention this is a big-hole 45?). Or if you prefer, just a T-shirt and download. Oh, one more thing, start looking for flights to San Francisco as we’ll have 100 special color 7”s only available in our forthcoming record store!
As per usual at Fat Wreck Chords, we’re staying ahead of the trends. Music not on plastic or vinyl discs? Interesting. We thought we should get in on the ground floor of this new technology. Oh wait, shit. Well, better late than never: it’s official, the Fat Wreck Chords Digital Store is open for business.

Last but not least, no longer will a merciless child-labor employing corporate monolith be taking a bite out of the fruits of your labor; your money is going directly into Fat Mike’s wallet… which he uses to put out new records from bands you love, pay those bands, pay the Fat staff and of course, buy beer.
So have a look around and pick up that Horace Pinker 7" you’ve been meaning to buy for years.
So today is the “official” release date for the brand new NOFX 7” box set, 126 Inches of NOFX (that’s 320 centimeters for those with metricidal tendencies). Not that the release date matters, since most of you have probably already snagged your copy of the special edition (1,200 pressed) from our webstore or the standard edition (1,800 pressed) from your local record store or elsewhere online. If you’ve been hittin’ snooze, you still have a chance to not lose. Record stores will have them stocked, and we still have the standard edition available from our webstore.
Besides our main objective of recapturing the bowling championship, we’re stoked that a bunch of Fat bands will be gracing the various stages at Punk Rock Bowling 2012, including the reunited Good Riddance! Tickets for all shows, both festival and club, are now on sale! Fat band schedule below:
