|VARIOUS ARTISTS FAT MUSIC VOL.8: GOING NOWHERE FAT Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
2015 marks Fat Wreck Chords’ 25th anniversary as a label! We’ve come a long way since starting out in Fat Mike’s (NOFX) kitchen a quarter century ago, putting out monumental albums from NOFX, Lagwagon, Strung Out, No Use For a Name, Propagandhi, Rise Against, Against Me!, The Lawrence Arms, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Descendents, and many more.
Besides having one of the most qualitatively and quantitatively impressive rosters in the punk world, Fat Wreck Chords can also boast the creation of the most recognizable compilation series in the genre, including such classics as Survival of the Fattest and Live Fat, Die Young.
The FAT MUSIC series is regarded as the gold standard of label comps.
Based on their hallmark of front to back quality, the FAT MUSIC comps acted as a gateway into an array of new bands for many young punks.
In honor of Fat’s 25th birthday, putting together the latest edition of the series was a no-brainer.
Packed with 25 (get it?) tracks, FAT MUSIC VOL. 8: GOING NOWHERE FAT continues the proud tradition of the comp series with new hit songs from label heavyweights and some of Fat’s recent sensations.
The collection also features previously unreleased offerings from NOFX, Swingin’ Utters, Leftover Crack, Western Addiction, Night Birds, and PEARS.
From start to finish, FAT MUSIC VOL. 8: GOING NOWHERE FAT shows off exactly why Fat Wreck Chords has been an admired punk rock institution for 25 years.
In celebration of Fat’s silver anniversary, and in support of the new comp, many of the bands featured on the album (NOFX, Lagwagon, Strung Out, Swingin’ Utters, The Flatliners, Masked Intruder, toyGuitar, Bad Cop/Bad Cop) will team up and embark on the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years Tour.
The tour will hit major markets throughout North America over the month of August, and will culminate with a three day festival in San Francisco featuring more than 25 Fat bands.
