Pop punkers I’m Fine have announced their signing to SoCal based label Wiretap Records and on February 3rd, they’ll be releasing their debut, full length album with their new partner! The ten track LP titled, Never Knowing Best was recorded in the band’s hometown of New Orleans by James Whitten with help from Brian Pretus of PEARS fame. Now, here’s where it gets real good. The N’awlin boys were kind enough to send a track over to put in the ears of DyingScene readers! Stream the single “Merit Badge” and check out what head vocalist, Wes Clampett had to say about the signing below. Then head over and pre-order a physical copy (which will also be available on cassette in limited quantities) here.

When asked about signing with Wiretap, bassist/vocalist Wes Clampitt said: “We did a few EPs and the plan was to keep them coming but, we ran into a wall of personal issues and such. Through it all, we kept writing songs and when we got our shit together, we realized that we had enough material for a full length (if you call 10 songs & 22 minutes a full length). We recorded with our friend, James Whitten, whose been working on some amazing albums lately. To be modest, I love the record. Coming together with Wiretap was as easy as mixing up L.A. and LA. I got a text from Brian (Pretus) about this dude, Rob, from Wiretap Records. He heard it, liked it, and had asked about us. So, of course, I check out Wiretap immediately and pretty much liked everything Rob was doing. He seems to excel in everything I’m Fine is terrible at. So, it seems like another piece of the puzzle fitting for us.”
