Launch into Tuesday with two powerhouse releases: The Flatliners and Western Addiction!
First up, we have The Flatliners 7", Resuscitation of the Year, a double A-side single which includes an unreleased song from the Dead Language sessions called “Fangs”. Since The Flatliners are headed to Europe on an epic tour, they put together a video of live footage and paired it with “Resuscitation of the Year”. Head to New Noise to watch them in action. Then, grab your copy today!
Next up, Western Addiction’s brand new three song 7", I’m Not the Man That I Thought I’d Be. Clatter and Hiss , which we premiered last week, is a demo of a song that will appear on their forthcoming album, and it marks the first appearance of bassist Tony Teixeira on a WA recording. If this has you frothing in eager anticipation for more, you’re in luck because they’re recording this fall! To get you even more pumped, read a new review over at punknews and then head over to Revolver to listen to the title track which features Dara from the band Serpent Crown.
Europe! Both bands are headed your way this week with Lagwagon to unleash an all-out blitz of punk rock. Get stoked!

As some of you may know, David Jones of Enemy You has passed away. He was our good friend and we are totally devastated. David, Enemy You and Fat go back a long way. Chicken and Ken (Dead To Me and Western Addiction) both played in Enemy You, Ken as a founding member with David. Enemy You contributed an amazing record to our Fat Club 7” Series in 2001, a record which contains one of the great Enemy You songs: “Kind Hearts.” David was truly a kind heart and one of the raddest people you could ever hope to know, hang out with, play video games with, talk Middle Earth with, and endlessly debate the merits of post-Brett Bad Religion with. We will always miss David in his red hoodie, singing along at DTM, TBR and WA shows. Rest in peace, brother.
Our friend Toby Jeg of Red Scare Industries posted this nice write up about David.
We just got word that Smoke or Fire is playing in Chicago! You lucky dogs!
Less Than Jake did an acoustic live session. Watch one of the video’s now!
Check out a new interview with Erin Burkett, co-owner of Fat, on 25 Years of Fat Wreck Chords!
Here’s a Spanish interview with Good Riddance in We Live In Hell magazine. Vámonos!
Bad Cop/Bad Cop’s Not Sorry is killing it!
Gentleman Blag: singer, Dwarves; writer, scathing op-eds. This time he takes down the legacy of the losers, the Confederate flag. Duke boys be damned.
