We at FAT have been so excited putting together our 25 year anniversary tour. It really is an epic year, and a stellar celebration… still, something is missing. It just doesn’t seem right for us to party without one of our founding FAT bands. We’ve managed to wrangle Propagandhi, Tilt, and Bracket, but we are left with a hole in our heart when it comes to No Use For a Name. FAT’s history is so closely intertwined with No Use For a Name, we knew we had to come up with some way to include them in our celebration. Of course, no one can replace our dear departed friend Tony Sly, but why not gather NUFAN alumni, Matt Riddle, Rory Koff, Dave Nassie (and more) and invite an amazing cast of FAT band members to sing lead vocals? We’re calling it No Use and Friends, and it’s a way to celebrate all that No Use For a Name has meant and still does mean to our label. Let’s make sure that No Use knows how much we love them, and how important they are in FAT’s history. Check them out Sunday, August 23rd, in San Francisco… it’s probably your last chance.
Con questo comunicato la Fat Wreck Chords, storica etichetta californiana, annuncia la presenza dei No Use and Friends alla seconda data di San Francisco del Fat Wrecked For 25 Years Tour.
I No Use and Friends sono una band composta dai musicisti che hanno sempre fatto parte dei NUFAN insieme ad alcuni amici di vecchia data. L’idea è nata per commemorare il compianto Tony Sly, frontman dei No Use For a Name scomparso poco meno di 3 anni fa.
Questa la due giorni di San Francisco:
Sabato 22 agosto:
ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES
Domenica 23 agosto:
NO USE AND FRIENDS
