• Fat Wreck News - New Screeching Weasel, Teenage Bottlerocket, Me First And Tour Dates!



    New Screeching Weasel MP3!

    Finally! For the first time in 11 years, you can listen to a brand new Screeching Weasel song. Culled from the new album First World Manifesto, out March 15th, head over to Spin to download “Beginningless Vacation”.
    That’s not all. Ben Weasel was recently interviewed by the MTV Music Book Club about his favorite piece of literature. And of course Screeching Weasel is hitting the road throughout 2011, with announced stops in Texas, the East Coast, and the Screeching Weasel 25th Anniversary weekend in Chicago. More dates to come!

    Pour Habit Got Your Back Out April 12th!

    Pour Habit recently put the finishing touches on their second full-length album, Got Your Back, and it’s set for release on April 12th! As you may or may not know the guys in Pour Habit are some zany mother fuckers (see: obsession with Four Loko, blazing metal riffs, Jagermeister, crazy break dancing, etc.), and they’ve managed to pour (pun intended) every ounce of that crazy energy into the 13 songs on Got Your Back . Just take our word for it, this album is gonna absolutely melt your face. Or, you know what, don’t take our word for it. Go to the band’s facebook page, download the first track for free, and see for yourself.

    TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET release Mutilate Me 7" on April 12th!

    Teenage Bottlerocket have a brand new 7”! It’s called Mutilate Me and comes out on April 12th! The three song 7” will be available digitally and obviously on vinyl. Check out what Ray from TBR had to say below:
    We named the 3 song 7" after the title track “Mutilate Me”. It’s a song about preferring things a little rough in the bedroom. The second song “Punk House of Horror” is a warning about a house you wouldn’t want to visit or sleepover. While being on the road we’ve been unfortunate enough to end up at the Punk House of Horror a few times. It smelled. We recorded the final track for the Bad Religion tribute comp, but we ended up not making the cut. The tune is “Henchman” from No Control. We are heading over to Europe in April with NOFX and Old Man Markley. We are playing with Screeching Weasel on May 27th at Reggies in Chicago. We can’t wait to play, and hang out with everybody!

    Me First and the Gimme Gimmes released their five song EP titled Go Down Under last week, and you can hear the entire EP here! This five song EP features a bevy of covers from famed Aussies INXS, Olivia Newton-John and Air Supply. The EP will be available digitally, on CD, and double 7”.
