First off, how does a band cover their own song?

Second, Fake Problems never wrote a song called "Songs For A Teenager."

This is great music journalism, folks. Though Shop Radio Cast are partly to blame with their page title reading "Songs For A Teenager", though facts really should have been checked.

If anyone wants to know the right info...

The 7" is called 'Songs For Teenagers', it has the album version on the a-side, and The Gaslight Anthem covering it on the b-side. It's coming out on Side One Dummy. Interestigly, the 7" is not being billed as a split, but just a Fake Problems release. Similar to The Postal Service 'Such Great Heights' EP i guess.

Side One Dummy and Shop Radio Cast both have exclusive colours, SOD are selling a clear Neon Green colour, and SRC are selling a Coke Bottle Clear colour. Both are selling Black copies.

Pressing info:

- 500 on Coke Bottle Clear
- 500 on PMS 357 Neon Green
- 1,500 on Black

You can pre-order it at Side One Dummy for US$4.00 or Shop Radio Cast for US$4.99.

Also, both bands have proper websites, which are way better than the ones linked in the article.

http://gaslightanthem.com/

See, it really doesn't take a lot to get the correct info to music fans. They deserve it.
