The owners of Fat Wreck Chords are not supposed to have band favorites. I confess that isn’t true. Fat Mike, well, he’s a tough one to pin down. However, co-owner Erin Burkett makes it no secret that her favorite band is Lagwagon. This should come as no surprise to people who pay attention. After all, she made her singing debut on ‘’E Dagger,’’ a song written for and named after her, off Lagwagon’s sixth album, Blaze! It doesn’t take much to convince Erin to travel for a Lagwagon show…add another FAT band to the bill, and she’s off! So, given Lagwagon’s recently announced touring schedule for 2018, it looks like the FAT office will have plenty of party time while the boss is away. Okay, maybe not party time, but we’re definitely coming in late; so thank you, Lagwagon! Here’s what they have cooking: In April (4/20), they’ll head to Miami to hop on the legendary Flogging Molly Salty Dog Cruise. Then in May (5/26), they’ll test their luck by heading to Vegas, where they headline the FAT showcase at Punk Rock Bowling! June (6/15) will see them in Canada, performing at the Montebello Rockfest. Finally, in August, they’ll jump the pond to tackle Europe. Lagwagon will be supporting their latest effort, Hang, and if you haven’t heard it, you can do so here!
