Mad Caddies keep it going, this time on wax and at 45 RPM! Culled from their latest full-length, Dirty Rice, Brand New Scar is the first single from the album and will be out on July 8th. You’ve heard them play the A-side on their recent tours, and here it is on a DJ and jukebox friendly big-hole 45RPM 7”! The B-side is a real treat for longtime fans as they revisit the classic song “Distress,” from their very first album. In line with the band’s musical expansion over the years, they reworked the song to incorporate their love of Dixieland and smartly titled the new rendition “Dixtress,” get it? Good, now get it! Then, catch them live including Europe, and check the newly announced U.S. East Coast dates.
WAIT! That’s not all. For the first and only time EVER you can own Hi-Standard’s classic EP, Love is a Battlefield, on super limited edition vinyl!
Summer is here! As promised, The M.I. Tour kicks off tomorrow in Normal, IL with Direct Hit! in support, and weaves around the East Coast, even dipping into Canada. Don’t miss it! West Coasters are in for quite a bill with Masked Intruder joining The Dwarves (self-professed “best band in the world”) AND pop-punk stalwarts The Queers (!!!), after which they’ll be ransacking Europe! If you haven’t done so already, grab a copy of their new album, M.I., today.

What’s up New Jersey! We love your fine state (Asbury Lanes, killer diners, no left turns, Snooki, scandalous bridge closures, disco fries!), but most of all we love how many killer bands you produce. Misfits, Bouncing Souls, Lifetime, Gaslight Anthem, Adrenalin OD… the list goes on. Well, today we’re THRILLED to announce that we’ve signed New Jersey’s newest favorite sons, NIGHT BIRDS! We’ve pined over them for years, releasing their killer 7" Maimed for the Masses last May, and today we officially welcome them to the Fat fold. That’s right! We’ll be releasing their next full-length album, which they’re already knee deep in writing. Vocalist Brian Gorsegner chimes in about it below.
We are excited to announce we are in the early stages of a writing a new album for Fat Wreck Chords to be released some time in 2015. It was a soul crushing, stir crazy winter and we’re really looking forward to getting that grossness out and onto a slab of wax for your listening pleasure. Prepare for what is bound to be next year’s feel bad album of the year.
Catch their amazing live show on tour!
