And it gets better: this week, the band heads to Colorado and the legendary Blasting Room. There, they'll be holed up for about a month, combining forces with the studio’s powerhouse producers Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore to record their ninth full-length! Due out in 2016, the new album will showcase all the infectious melodies and driving guitars you’d expect on a face to face punk record, amplified by the Fort Collins production machine. face to face, vocalist/songwriter Trever Keith comments: Returning to Fat Wreck Chords for us is a homecoming. After 8 records on almost as many labels throughout our career, we've definitely been through some of the worst and best of this business. The fact that after 25 years FAT is still going strong, is a testament to their commitment they have to their artists. We are excited about working with people who truly understand what we do and who we are. Co-owner Erin Burkett comments: With FAT celebrating 25 years as a label, and face to face celebrating 25 years as a band, it just makes sense for their next record to be on FAT. I'm excited for them to return to their roots, and can't wait for their fans to hear what the band's been working on! Co-owner Fat Mike (NOFX) comments: face to face aren't really coming back to FAT. We originally signed them to a two record deal. Paragraph 6 section C clearly stated that face to face (the band) must deliver two full length LP's within the next twenty five years. They are just making good on the original contract. I knew those guys would come through! face to face tour dates: 10/2/15 Tempe, AZ- Marquee Theatre 11/6/15 São Paulo, Brazil -Audio Club w/Pennywise 11/7/15 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil- Fundição Progresso w/Pennywise 11/8/15 Santos, Brazil- Capital Disco w/Pennywise 11/10/15 Porto Alegre, Brazil- Opinião w/Pennywise 11/11/15 Curitiba, Brazil- Espaço Trésor Eventos w/Pennywise 11/13/15 San Jose, Costa Rica Pepper Disco Club
