In December 2019, Fat Mike dropped a list of albums that were coming out in 2020. One of them was The Suicide Machines, and today Fat Wreck Chords finally get to unveil the details. Their debut FAT full-length, ‘Revolution Spring,’ will hit the streets on March 27th.
What’s more, this new album is filled to the brim with blistering, rousing songs that combine hardcore, ska, and anthemic punk rock. Recorded in “about 12 days” at Rancho Recordo, and produced by Less Than Jake’s bassist Roger Lima, the album offers the first taste in the shape of the lead track, ‘Awkward Always,’ which can be heard below.
Vocalist, Jason Navarro, had this to share about joining the FAT family: “We all felt we wrote such a good record that there could be no home for us other than FAT. It’s an honor to be in the DIY house they built and be included with so many Legendary bands. Feels like we are finally home.”
About the album, he added: “This album is legitimately pretty autobiographical. A lot of it is very personal – about how I am and where I am now and how I got where I am now mentally. I kind of wanted to leave my children with an understanding of who I am as an older person. Maybe years from now when I’ve passed away, they can pick up the record and look at the lyrics and listen to it and, if they didn’t already know exactly, go ‘Okay, so this is what dad is about.’”
