Fat Wreck Chords announce “Fat Music Vol. 8: Going Nowhere Fat”

Fat Wreck Chords have announced the eighth volume in their ever-popular Fat Music compilation series. The label is celebrating its 25th anniversary, so in honor of that, they are releasing Fat Music Vol. 8: Going Nowhere Fat, which will feature 25 (a number in honor of their anniversary) new and unreleased tracks from the label’s roster, including NOFXLagwagonMasked Intruder, and the newly signed PEARS. Check out the tracklisting below.

2015 marks Fat Wreck Chords’ 25th anniversary as a label and nothing seemed more appropriate than bringing back the Fat Music series. With classic comps like Survival of the Fattest, Physical Fatness and Live Fat, Die Young, this is a series that’s less about acting as a label sampler as it is about compiling great, listenable punk albums, loaded with gems from front to back. It’s been five years since we added a volume to the series and with a grip of new bands and new groundbreaking records from classic Fat bands, our 25th anniversary year was the obvious choice for Volume 8. Packed with an appropriate 25 songs, selected and sequenced by Fat Mike, Fat Music Vol. 8: Going Nowhere Fat is the next essential Fat comp. And as you’ve come to expect, you get a handful of brand new and unreleased tunes, this time from NOFX, Swingin’ Utters, Leftover Crack, Western Addiction, Night Birds and PEARS. The comp will be released on August 7th and will be available for pre-order soon! If you haven’t grabbed a ticket to the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years tour, you can do so now!

Fat Music Vol. 8: Going Nowhere Fat will be released on August 7, and is the first in the Fat Music series since 2010’s Fat Music Vol. 7: Harder, Fatter + Louder!
