Face To Face announce new EP and Econo-Live ’17 tour dates

Double dose of rad Face To Face news for your Hump Day Evening!

The double A-side release features “Say What You Want,” from their latest full-length, Protection, on one side and a new track, “I, Me, Mine” on the other.

Dubbed the “Econo Live ’17” tour, the 23-date run finds the band recreating the vibe of their now legendary original Econo Live tour twenty years ago, where they”jumped in a van and performed in very small clubs across the US.” There is a VIP upgrade option that includes an intimate acoustic set pre-show, tour-exclusive merch, and more. The jaunt kicks off May 3rd in Bakersfield and runs through June 10th in Chicago. Tickets are available now; check out details here, and check out the band’s full itinerary below.

Exclusive: Jason Cruz spills surprising details on new Strung Out EP “Black Out The Sky”

Last week word quickly spread through the interwebs that California punk legends Strung Out had begun working on a new album titled “Black Out The Sky”. Beyond that, details were largely nonexistent, but luckily for you DS readers we were able to get the full scoop directly from singer Jason Cruz himself.

What we learned is as exciting as it is unexpected. Basically, this isn’t going to be your standard Strung Out release. For one, it’s going to be acoustic. Yeah. Second, its apparently going to be some of the band’s “darkest” work to date. Intriguing! Here’s exactly what Cruz told us:

“Strung out is currently working on a 5-7 song EP entitled “Black Out The Sky” set to release early summer 2017 on Fat Wreck Chords. BOTS will be a collection of acoustic songs written with a loose theme to match the title. To simply call it an ‘acoustic album’ would not be doing it justice and it very well may be our darkest release yet.

Never writing same record twice – yet at the same time staying true to our fans has always been our priority as a band. We do not plan on abandoning our signature sound but with the way things are now, this record may be the perfect remedy in a world where everything is turned up to eleven. We are confident fans of Strung Out will not be disappointed.”

We’ll keep you posted as progress is made on the album and with any luck we’ll convince the band to let us premiere a song early for you guys. Stay tuned!

Strung Out’s last album Transmission.Alpha.Delta was released in early 2015 on Fat Wreck Chords.
