So-Cal punk band FACE TO FACE released their first live album back in 1998, when the group was only seven years old and had a trio of full-lengths to its name. Two decades, six studio albums, and roughly a million shows later, FACE TO FACE is set to recapture their ferocious live performances on an album and remind everyone why they’re icons.
The ninth edition of Fat Wreck Chords’ Live in a Dive 10-18-2019 captures FACE TO FACE blasting through 12 songs from their storied career in 39 minutes.
The band selected highlights from their three-night stand at Brooklyn’s St. Vitus in early 2019. The result is 12 songs that fit neatly on one vinyl album.
“I think that the only reason to do a live record when you’re nearly 30 years into your career as a band is to make a statement to the world,” says vocalist/guitarist Trever Keith. “We’re still playing this vital, intense music. We’re still here and we're not going anywhere.”
The band could've picked any number of songs from their lengthy discography, and settling on a dozen tracks was a difficult task for the band. “I think initially the biggest challenge for me was to figure out how to make a good track listing without repeating ourselves, because we’re still playing a lot of the same songs that we recorded for our first live album,” Keith says. “But the best part about this new live record is we played some really great songs from our catalog that had been missing from our live set. Now they'll probably become staples at our shows.”
Face To Face is set to make a co-headlining tour with fellow Fat Wreck label mates Lagwagon this fall.
