FAT signs The Bombpops! New Song Now!
The Bombpops shouldn’t be strangers to anyone frequenting our bands’ shows in California and beyond over the last half dozen years. With Teenage Bottlerocket and Swingin’ Utters tours under their belts – as well as opening slots with NOFX, Anti-Flag and countless others – The Bombpops have proven themselves, so we’re stoked to welcome them to the FAT family…most of whom they already know! Stepping up their intensity and songwriting chops, while retaining the fun, positive energy of their pop-punk meets So-Cal skate-punk vibe, The Bombpops recently completed work on their first full-length album, Fear of Missing Out. As focused and finely honed a debut album as you’ll ever hear, there was no way we could pass up the opportunity to release it. Here’s what Fat Mike had to say about the signing:
“I heard the Bombpops, saw ’em live, and thought they were pretty cool peeps, but no way was I gonna sign ’em. A couple years go by, and they send me this new record… and it’s fucking good. So I signed ’em. I guess bands can get better… NOFX certainly did.”
Enough blathering, listen to “CA in July” right now!
