Useless ID, longtime ambassadors of Middle East punk rock, will finally see a unified, worldwide release of The Lost Broken Bones, the fantastic but overlooked album that preceded their Fat debut, Symptoms. Initially made up of 12 tracks produced and recorded at The Blasting Room by Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore, our reissue of The Lost Broken Bones also contains seven bonus tracks culled from the same era. The resulting collection is a fantastic blaze of front-and-center, immense sounding melodic punk. Read what Ishay Berger from Useless ID has to say about the release and their plans for the rest of the year:
“After releasing our final album for Kung Fu Records in 2005, we had our strongest album ready to go but had a hard time finding a label to put it out internationally. And so we ended up releasing The Lost Broken Bones on no less than 5 different record labels, with a pretty much different label for each territory. Some years passed and it became quite hard to get a copy of the album (a good lesson in quality vs. quantity) and so we cannot be more excited to announce that our amazing friends at Fat Wreck Chords will be re-releasing our 2008 album, with plenty of bonus tracks that did not appear on the original release. We are currently working on a new album and going to Japan with the Gorilla Biscuits this September! Then, we have another great tour in Europe booked which we’ll announce soon!
Where can you simultaneously indulge in bowling, booze, buffets, gambling, and endless punk rock shows? Punk Rock Bowling. Duh! It’s why we make the trek to Sin City every year. This year we’re bringing our record store with us and for 3 days at the festival you can pick up our new 10" comp, Greetings From Punk Rock Bowling. We made exclusive artwork and color vinyl just for Punk Rock Bowling! Rollin’ Dice or Golden Nugget Pool Party color vinyl anyone? Plus, we’ll be selling our Fat Wreck Bowling shirts this year. So even if you’ve never won the whole tournament (like we did), at least you can dress like it. We have a ton of Fat bands playing again this year, so check out the Punk Rock Bowling website for all the details. See ya on the lanes!
