THE FAKE BOYS New Full-Length Out Today From ANIMAL STYLE RECORDS
Pig Factory – the debut full-length from Lowell, MA’s The Fake Boys – is officially out today (03/27) on Animal Style Records (Mixtapes, Hold Tight!, Kite Party, Born Without Bones). The label has issued the album on digital and 12″ LP formats, with the latter being limited to 500 on copies on black (100) and translucent pink (400) colorways.
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 release, Animal Style and The Fake Boys have teamed up with Punknews.org for a full-length stream. To listen to Pig Factory in its entirety, go here. You can also stream the record via Bandcamp.
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.
Finally, The Fake Boys will be embarking on a month-long tour of the U.S. in support of the new record beginning on April 7th. The outfit will be joined by Kent, OH’s Light Years. As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, drop me a line here. You can also contact me for a link to an EPK which includes a full mp3 download of the album.
