Fall is the season for many things — back to school, that holiday you all seem to be big fans of, getting back to work, season changes (in places outside of the Southwest), and of course, new albums from old and new bands alike. Obviously, this is by no means a comprehensive list, but here are some new releases coming soon that we’ve had our eye on.
By now, I’m sure everyone here is quite familiar with Fat Wreck Chords and the ever-so-colorful Fat Mike. Some of us may even be familiar with how it began and the hundred plus bands that have touted the Fat Wreck seal of approval on one or all of their releases. The alumni list is pretty hefty, particularly if you include subsidiary labels Honest Don’s and Pink & Black, which unfortunately, were barely mentioned in this documentary. I have more complaints being a terminal curmudgeon, but we’ll get to those later.
