Me First and the Gimme Gimmes Sing in Japanese will be released on September 13th. The EP marks the Gimmes first foray into singing in a foreign language (Japanese, if you hadn’t figured that out from the title), as they put their trademark twist on 6 hits from the land of the rising sun. The EP will be available on CD, 12” vinyl and digitally. To find out how Spike tackled the process of recording and learning Japanese, read this! Check out the cover art and new show date below. Stay tuned as the Gimmes will be adding more Japanese tour dates soon.
The NOFX hardcore covers release comes out 8/2/2011. Preorder has begun and will ship late July. In addition to the 10” we also have available a limited color and black 7”, awesome limited 12” picture disc with the back image assembled by Eric Melvin. We’re also selling a super limited NOFX DIY T-shirt and giving away a free sticker with any format purchased. Get it all now (and don’t forget to buy us a beer when you checkout)!
On August 16th we’re releasing a new 7” from The Flatliners entitled Count Your Bruises. This three song single will be available digitally and on vinyl (including exclusive colors for the Fat webstore and the band on tour). The a-side “Count Your Bruises” is the 3rd single from the Cavalcade album and you can download it for free right here! The two songs on the b-side are from the same recording session and recently received the finishing touches. The cover art is designed by Richard Minino of The Black Axe and you can view it below.
