Animal Style Records is excited to welcome The Fake Boys (Lowell, MA) to its ever-growing family.
Here’s the official statement:
On March 27th, 2012, the label will issue the outfit’s newest full-length, Pig Factory, digitally and on 12″ vinyl, with the latter being limited to 500 copies on black (100) and translucent pink (400) colorways.
Pig Factory was recorded and produced by Jay Maas (Have Heart, Title Fight, Transit, Polar Bear Club) at Getaway Recording in Wakefield, MA. The album is the trio’s second long-player and the follow-up to This Is Where Our Songs Live, as well as several EPs and split releases. You can check out The Fake Boys’ back catalog on Bandcamp.
To celebrate today’s announcement, Animal Style and The Fake Boys have teamed up with Alternative Press for an exclusive stream of the song “This Is Our Sound.” To listen, go here.
Caught somewhere between the warm, fuzzy hooks of The Smoking Popes, The Descendent’s urgency and aggression, Chavez’s skewed dynamics and the unique melodicism of Jawbreaker, Pig Factory is an undeniably fun, unexpected ride that’s teeming with buzz-saw guitars and a seemingly never-ending supply of sing-along moments. The Fake Boys understand how to evoke the nostalgia of 90’s power-pop and indie rock while diving into modern punk’s pool of tension and ferocity.
Stay tuned for pre-order information in early March, as well as news of a full U.S. Tour in April and Europe later this summer.
