Fat Wreck Chords is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and has announced the summer Fat Wrecked tour featuringÂ NOFX, Lagwagon, Swinginâ€™ Utters, The Flatliners, Masked Intruder, toyGuitar, and Bad Cop/Bad Cop. The tour expects to announce more bands in the future.
Fat Wreck announced the anniversary on their Facebook:
Fat Wreck Chords is 25!!! A quarter of a century?? We can hardly believe it ourselves! Who would have thought that something that started all those years ago in Mike and Erin’s kitchen would still be around today! We’ve been through weddings and divorces, births and deaths, rehabs and reintoxications, and we are still pumping out some of the most influential punk rock around. After 25 years, we think we’ve earned the right to throw a proper party and celebrate the fact that we are old! So, starting on August 6th: a bunch of our bands will be playing together all across North America on the Fat Wrecked for 25 Years tour. To cap it off there will be a massive two day blowout festival in our hometown of San Francisco, where we will shut down the streets and blast out the tunes.Â
Stay tuned, because the official Fat Wrecked For 25 Years tour will have additional bands added, plus surprise bands added to specific shows. Come out and celebrate with us!
