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.
Day at the Fair will release their first song in 9 years, "The Brightening," on February 25. The single, produced by Rob Freeman, will be available digitally with all proceeds going to the recording of their new album, The Epilogue. A teaser video and statement from the band are in the replies.
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 enter the studio in April to record an EP, marking their first new material in 8 years. It's tentatively set to be released this summer via Broken Heart Records, along with 2005's The Rocking Chair Years on vinyl.
