No Use for a Name "All the Best Shows" small club, mini-tour + Strung Out listening party
By now you all must have heard about the Band in the Bubble but we here at Fat like to push the envelope a bit and take things to the next level. That is why we put together this groundbreaking idea we like to call Band in the ClubbleÂ©. You might think we are “write on the walls with our own poop, crazy” but we just feel like this is the right thing to do. That is why No Use for a Name is about to embark on the “All the Best Shows” Tour with Whole Wheat Bread and Fat’s newest signing The Flatliners. The tour starts on July 6th in San Jose, CA and ends in San Francisco, CA on July 17th. This small club, mini-tour is in support of No Use’s upcoming “Best of” collection, All the Best Songs, that comes out on July 10th and it celebrates the band’s 20th anniversary. Did we mention that this was like a mix tape of NUFAN’s best songs plus two unreleased songs? Did we mention that all the songs are re-mastered? Did we mention that it’s cheap ($8 through the Fat site and $10.98 in stores)? Did we…?
Strung Out’s brand new studio full length Blackhawks Over Los Angeles is scheduled to come out on June 12th and the band just announced news about a special record release, listening party. The all ages event will take place on June 9th at the Skatelab in Simi Valley, CA from 7pm-11pm. There will be food and drink and the band will be hanging out and signing posters. If you ask really nicely then Jordan might even pull off a McTwist. Aside from commandeering the park’s sound system and spinning the new record all night long, they will also be premiering the brand new video for the song “Calling”. We just posted a few video stills from the shoot in their photo section here. Go visit the boys before they head off on their European tour. Don’t forget about the awesome pre-sale offer where you can get a limited edition copy of the CD with an extra bonus track “More Than Words” and a t-shirt designed by singer, Jason Cruz. We’ll also have the limited version of the CD in the Fat webstore and we’ll start our pre-sale on June 6th.
