Here’s one completely out of the blue: Denver ska-punk legends Five Iron Frenzy, pronounced dead in 2003, have announced a brand new album. The plan, according to the band’s Tumblr, is to release an album in 2013. The statement reads as follows:
“Our hope is to release an album in 2013, ten years after our initial final show. We are shooting for the financial goal of $30,000. Your pledges will be used to pay for demoing new material, recording, mixing, mastering, and associated travel expenses.”
(Read the band’s full statement here.)
Oh, Did we mention that this announcement came at the end of an 8-minute video by vocalist Reese Roper teaching basic desert survival skills? Watch it here if you don’t believe us.
