Beginning on Friday, October 7th, The Mighty Fine (San Luis Obispo, CA) will embark on a 15-date tour of the U.S. in support of its newest full-length, In Revival.
The band’s sophomore effort was released on August 16th by Solidarity Recordings (imadethismistake, The Methadones, Run, Forever) and is available on CD and digital formats. See Related Links for where to buy the CD, download it via iTunes or pick up a copy directly from the band at shows. There is also a 12" vinyl version in the works which will see a late Fall release from Solidarity.
The Mighty Fine will be touring with fellow Californians Heart To Heart, whose newest 7-inch, Deathproof, was released today by Anchor Eighty Four. Detailed tour info is below. As always, If you’d like to attend one of these shows or speak with either band, drop me a line.
Produced by Nolan Perry, mastered by Justin Perkins (Screeching Weasel, The Riverdales, Direct Hit!) and featuring artwork from Dave Watt, In Revival is the follow-up to The Mighty Fine’s 2010 self-released full-length, Bad Timing For Everything. On its latest stellar effort, the California trio extolls the most positive virtues of contemporaries such as The Menzingers and Against Me! – driving, punchy rhythms, soaring choruses and dynamic song structures – while still carving out a unique space for itself within the crowded punk universe. Played with passion and a fiery conviction, but also executed with precision and carefully considered ideas, In Revival bares the mark of a band ready for bigger and better things.
In Revival is currently streaming in its entirety at Punknews.org. To listen to the full-album, see Related Links. Additionally, you can download free mp3s for the songs "To Indiana" and "Paper Trails."
Finally, head on over to Dying Scene and vote for The Mighty Fine in the site’s Cover Art of the Month Battle. Created by the previously mentioned Dave Watt, In Revival is being pitted against the likes of The Copyrights and fellow Beartrap PR roster mates, Banquets.
