But before we get too into the weekend, we have two brand new releases for your listening pleasure. Up first, The Flatliners keep things moving with Division of Spoils! A massive collection of b-sides, rarities and previously unreleased songs including “Lifers” and “Broken Men” which we premiered last week. Don’t miss them on stage; they’re currently tearing it up on the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years Tour happening now! Stream the entire album on Bandcamp and Spotify.
Next, Fat Music Vol.8: Going Nowhere Fat! We’re stoked to be releasing this today since we’re in the midst of celebrating our 25th anniversary as a label. Nothing seemed more appropriate than bringing back our beloved Fat Music series. With classic comps like Survival of the Fattest, Physical Fatness and Live Fat, Die Young, this is a series that’s less about acting as a label sampler as it about compiling killer, listenable punk album from front to back. Curious? Just head over to Alternative Press who are premiering a NOFX demo version of “SF Clits.” Then, check out two of the six previously unreleased songs from Night Birds and PEARS! Head over to read a review or two, then grab your copy today! Stream the entire comp on Bandcamp and Spotify.
Friends, today we have to announce that our favorite Winnipeggers, Propagandhi, will be unable to play our 25th Anniversary show in San Francisco. Chris Hannah had this to say, “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Propagandhi very regretfully announce their cancellation. We’ll see you at the 50th anniversary.”
We are incredibly privileged to announce that in Propagandhi’s place, relentless New York hardcore heavyweights and Fat alumni, Sick Of It All, will be tearing your face off! Maximum heavy is still in effect. Here’s what they had to say about playing our anniversary show:
The scene – what is it? Is it people getting together, celebrating each other, wishing for each other’s success? It should be, right? Fat Wreck has always been the epitome of support and generosity in punk and hardcore, because they want their friends to continue doing what they love. They want their friends to succeed. When talking about a scene, Fat Wreck has set a standard for all else to follow. As long as Mike is calling the shots, punk won’t ever die.
For those of you who purchased single day tickets and would like a reimbursement (refer to your ticket for instructions), you have 48 hours to do so.
Holy smokes! Are you ready for a brand new album from our most recent signees, PEARS? They’ve been buckled down in the bogs of New Orleans recording it so rest assured, they’ll have something new to melt your faces off in early 2016. In the meantime, you can satiate your thirst by heading to Revolver, who’s premiering “Snowflake” off our Fat Music Vol. 8: Going Nowhere Fat comp! Out tomorrow, you can pre-order it today or grab a copy at one of the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years shows starting today in Toronto! Don’t miss PEARS live! They’re playing a grip of shows: our Fat Anniversary shows in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Riot Fest, a tour with Teenage Bottlerocket and FEST!
Get Dead is currently tearing it up in Europe and will be returning stateside to tackle the west coast with Clowns from Australia this September! Get all the dates and info here!
On August 13th, at the Gramercy Theatre, NOFX will premiere their new movie: Backstage Passport 2! Following the movie, Jonah Bayer and Steven Smith from Going Off Track will interview NOFX and take questions from the audience. Head over to Brooklynvegan for the details, and a first glimpse into the inner-band meltdowns, shady promoters, tear gas, fires and more with the brand new trailer of BSP2! After the viewing and Q&A, toyGuitar will keep the party rolling with their infectious live show. All this will be capped off with a full set from NOFX, but don’t count on them playing The Longest Line here. They are saving that specifically for the Fat Wrecked For 25 Years Tour, which kicks off this week!
