Milwaukee pop-punks Direct Hit! are the latest band to ink a deal with Fat Wreck Chords. According to the label’s press release, the band will have a new album out by summer. Also of note is the band will be supporting NOFX on their upcoming US tour – dates/locations below.
Here’s what Direct Hit! frontman Nick Woods had to say about signing with Fat:
“Fat Wreck defined my opinion of what ‘punk’ meant when I was an insecure teenager in the Midwest. So I guess in a lot of ways, as someone who still cares about music 15 years later, the label’s helped define my outlook on life in general. It’s incredible for me to be able to say our band is a small piece of that foundation now.”
Direct Hit!’s latest studio album Brainless God was released in 2013 through Red Scare Industries. We’ll keep you posted as more details come to light on their Fat Wreck debut.
