NUFAN All the Best Songs pre-order info & tour. Vote for Strung Out Air Drummer contest finalists.

I assume that you are preparing for the 4th of July and amassing everything you’ll need to properly blow your own hands off. Either that or you’re perfecting the “ye old bottle rocket out-the-ass” trick which is truly an American classic. Don’t try it though because it always ends in a scorched hoop. If you still have all your limbs intact then I think you should check out No Use for a Name on the “All the Best Shows” small-club, mini tour which kicks off on July 6th. Don’t forget to show up early and catch our new band the Flatliners. We just posted the cover art for the Flats’ new record The Great Awake which comes out on Sept. 4th. The pre-sale for NUFAN’s Best of collection starts on July 2nd and you can get it right here for only $8. Declare your independence from high cd prices!

Strung Out Blackhawks Over Los Angeles out now + AIR DRUMMER / YOU TUBE CONTEST!!!

Strung Out‘s brand new record, Blackhawks Over Los Angeles is in stores now!!! We’ve drummed up (sweet mercy that’s good!) the most ruling contest for you to celebrate the release of the record. Try to figure it out..It’s 1987…you have high top white Nikes on and you have the kindest mullet this side of the Appalachians. You got it? Here’s another clue…You are the only guy in the band that is allowed to wear shorts and not look like a total goon for doing it. Not ringing a (cow) bell? Watch this!!!

IT’S THE OFFICIAL STRUNG OUT AIR DRUMMER CONTEST!!!

Forget all that air guitar crap where you prance around like there’s a hornet up your ass, take a seat on the riser and set up your video/web camera! You have exactly two weeks to send us a link to a video of you on You Tube playing the air drums to your favorite Strung Out song. We’ll pick the best 3 videos and put links to them in our poll section and let the PEOPLE vote on them. The winner gets an awesome prize package including an autographed, custom made Strung Out Paiste cymbal used by the band. Remember…you don’t necessarily have to be Smelly from NOFX, Keith Moon or the guy on the corner hitting a bucket and playing a Casio with his toes. Style, creativity and the acceptable amount of flare count just as much as being a technical master. Also, WE ARE ONLY GOING TO ACCEPT AIR DRUMMING VIDEOS so don’t send some lame video of you putting your cat in a jar or you taking a dump on a frisbee and please…no fire.

Here’s the details:
-Grand prize winner receives: Autographed custom made Strung Out Paiste cymbal, a pair of Pro-Mark Jordan Burns signature drumsticks, autographed CD, autographed poster
-2 Runner-ups receive: Autographed Remo drumhead, autographed poster, CD
-E-mail your You Tube video link to mailbag@fatwreck.com with STRUNG OUT AIR DRUMMER in the subject line
-You have until June 26th to get us your video link

Strung Out Blackhawks Over Los Angeles pre-order, limited edition bonus song

First Paris goes to jail and then Scooter Libby too. What’s next…an end to the war in the Middle East, the crisis in Darfur and a focus on the environment? Wait a second…first we need to build that much needed European rocket net and then we can get to those other pesky things. Well…you don’t have to be a rocket scientologist to realize you should pick up the new Strung Out record, Blackhawks Over Los Angeles when it comes out next Tuesday or right NOW from our webstore! It’s the seventh full length record from one of Fat’s original, mainstay bands. Metal influenced punk that is technical and aggressive yet melodic and emotional. It was recorded by Grammy award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed) so it is sure to have enough of this, this and a pinch of this but hopefully NONE of this. Yes…those are men. If you pre-order directly from us, you can get a limited edition copy of the CD (while supplies last) featuring the bonus track “More Than Words”. We’re gonna be posting the video for “Calling” on Friday! The reviews are starting to come in and people LOVE this record.

No Use for a Name “All the Best Shows” small club, mini-tour + Strung Out listening party

By now you all must have heard about the Band in the Bubble but we here at Fat like to push the envelope a bit and take things to the next level. That is why we put together this groundbreaking idea we like to call Band in the Clubble©. You might think we are “write on the walls with our own poop, crazy” but we just feel like this is the right thing to do. That is why No Use for a Name is about to embark on the “All the Best Shows” Tour with Whole Wheat Bread and Fat’s newest signing The Flatliners. The tour starts on July 6th in San Jose, CA and ends in San Francisco, CA on July 17th. This small club, mini-tour is in support of No Use’s upcoming “Best of” collection, All the Best Songs, that comes out on July 10th and it celebrates the band’s 20th anniversary. Did we mention that this was like a mix tape of NUFAN’s best songs plus two unreleased songs? Did we mention that all the songs are re-mastered? Did we mention that it’s cheap ($8 through the Fat site and $10.98 in stores)? Did we…?

Strung Out’s brand new studio full length Blackhawks Over Los Angeles is scheduled to come out on June 12th and the band just announced news about a special record release, listening party. The all ages event will take place on June 9th at the Skatelab in Simi Valley, CA from 7pm-11pm. There will be food and drink and the band will be hanging out and signing posters. If you ask really nicely then Jordan might even pull off a McTwist. Aside from commandeering the park’s sound system and spinning the new record all night long, they will also be premiering the brand new video for the song “Calling”. We just posted a few video stills from the shoot in their photo section here. Go visit the boys before they head off on their European tour. Don’t forget about the awesome pre-sale offer where you can get a limited edition copy of the CD with an extra bonus track “More Than Words” and a t-shirt designed by singer, Jason Cruz. We’ll also have the limited version of the CD in the Fat webstore and we’ll start our pre-sale on June 6th.
