We are so damn excited about these releases that I am stumped on how to announce it. This news post is simply too daunting to attempt. How do you whip up a concise news post describing the career of Lagwagon? You don’t. You employ the man himself, Joey Cape, to run down the complexities of assembling a decade’s worth of LAGWAGON material. Check out the video below! And to celebrate these reissues, LAGWAGON will be playing a special one-off show in San Francisco on December 17th, with special guests joining the band on stage. More details soon!
Cobra Skulls new full length, Agitations comes out on Sept 27th. Listen to and download a brand new track titled “Solastalgia” premiered by Rolling Stone Magazine by clicking HERE!
Old Man Markley release Party Shack today! The title track is quintessential OLD MAN MARKLEY in both name and content. Lightning fast banjo, violin, and guitars play off sweet harmonies about drunken revelry, perfectly summing up an OMM live performance. The b-side is an interpretation of the One Man Army classic “The Holidays”, buy it digitally, and on vinyl. We have the title track available on our media player, check it out, or head over to our sound cloud. Peta has just posted a new interview and contest to win Party Shack, check it out here. To keep the party going if you will, we are happy to announce an upcoming “New Years Heave” show with NOFX, Lagwagon, OMM and a special guest at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. Check the details here. Tickets will be on sale Sept 23rd.
The Fest, held each year in Gainesville, FL is celebrating its 10th year!

Once these 10”s are gone, that’s it. This is a Fest only item! All the Fat bands performing will have a limited amount at their merch booth (Cobra Skulls, Smoke or Fire, Dead To Me, Banner Pilot, Teenage Bottlerocket, None More Black, Paint It Black, The Flatliners, Old Man Markley and Dillinger Four). Additionally, for the first time ever, we’ll have a table set up at the flea market. The Flea market is held at the Holiday Inn where you check in, and we’ll be there on Friday only.
