Day at the Fair - one of the most underappreciated bands of the Drive-Thru Records glory days - is back with their first song in nine years. Head to the replies to stream "The Brightening," which was produced by Rob Freeman. If you like what you hear, pick up the single on Bandcamp, iTunes or Amazon. All profits will go toward the recording of their final album, The Epilogue, which is due out later this year on Broken Heart Records.

Our friends at Broken Heart Records are allowing us to relive the golden age by reissuing some great records on vinyl. Their latest is Day at the Fair's 2005 effort, The Rocking Chair Years - which, for my money, is one of the most underrated albums from Drive-Thru Records' glory days. The vinyl release is top-notch; read my review for more details. Want to get your hands on a copy? Leave a comment here telling us why you want it for your chance to win a variant bundle - which includes all three variants as well as a special lathe cut. One winner will be chosen next week.

Drive-Thru Records had an unbelievable roster in their prime, but one band that went criminally overlooked was Day at the Fair. The New Jersey pop punk group's 2005 effort, The Rocking Chair Years, is making its vinyl debut on September 17th via Broken Heart Records. In addition to the original album and several bonus tracks, there is also a limited edition lathe cut available only in a bundle. It features "Broken," which is one of the first songs the band ever recorded but was never released. Head to the replies or the band's AP.net profile to listen to the track and be brought back to the golden age of pop punk.

Day at the Fair will begin recording new demos soon and start a new album this Fall or Winter.
Message from the Band...On to other things. We had an awesome time playing down in Philly back in April. Seeing familiar faces is always a good time. We've been talking and we definately wanna rock some more. There's alot of logistics to this though. Who's still into it, who's not, TIME. Real life shit definately gets in the way of alot of this. But regardless, we're lookin to hit a studio to do some super rough demos in the next month or two (sorry, you don't get to hear those, no offense), play some shows later on this summer, and hopefully record somethin legit in the fall or winter. I don't...

An update from Chris of Day At The Fair can be seen below.
Day At The Fair UpdateAlthough Day At The Fair disbanded, or broke up, went on "indefiniate hiatus" (as most bands call it these days) over a year ago, we still reserve the right to play a show every now and again. There was once a time when it was our careers, our baby, and our lifes. At this point, it's more or less a grave we all come to visit occasionally to put flowers on, not to celebrate it's death, but to remember how much fun we once had when it was alive. These days, for myself, Rob and Steve, we've grown alot. We all work respective jobs, finishing up the last remaining credits of school and believe it or not, this...
