Their new record, Dead FM, is only two weeks away and we have a new song to tide you over: Instinct. If you have one of those mobile phone thingies, you can get a buncha new ringtones":http://fatwreck.indieringers.com/ from the upcoming album. And of course we can’t forget to mention their upcoming tour, and you should also know we’ll be throwing in a free Strike Anywhere patch for Fat Mailorder. Check out that new song and get lost in the music, dawg.
Get this, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes will be playing the Pittsburgh Pirates “Skyblast” on August 24th, 25th, and 26th. Not sure what that entails, but it’s a homecoming of sorts for frontman Spike who hails from the Iron City and has the Heinz Ketchup and Steelers tats to prove it. Maybe the Caper will channel the spirit of Roberto Clemente? It should also be noted that the Gimmes are wrapping up their next record, Love Their Country, which comes out October 17th.
Go see their new vid for the song “Special Professional” over in the Media section. It’s kinda like one of those PBS “Over San Francisco” shows. You get to really take in the sights of our fare city. Dead To Me will be doing a West Coast tour with The Briggs very soon, and have BIG tour plans for October and November. On a side, there was a bike crash in this video but the band members tell us it took place “off camera”. Uh huh.
This one comes straight from the Warped Tour. Mike is joined by fellow four-stringers Andrew Seward and Brian Kienlen and they, of course, talk shit for 30 minutes. It’s funny stuff though. Head over to the Community section and get to downloadin’.
Remember that old Propagandhi sticker? I think it went, “I can’t believe it’s not straight-edge christian hardcore!” Yeah, well Fat Mike is up to his ol’ tricks again: the time-honored feud of Jews vs. Jesus. You can read Mike’s side of the story here, if you want. Hey, if there can’t be peace in the Middle East, why should there be peace on Warped Tour?
