Fist City - ‘It’s 1983, Grow Up!’ Release and ‘Boring Kids’ Video

Following last year's run of amazing live shows and strong support from UK fans countrywide, Transgressive Records are proud to announce the signing of Canadian punks FIST CITY, and will re-issue their classic album 'It's 1983, Grow Up' on May 17th.

 

Forming in Lethbridge, a smallish southern Alberta town, in 2010, Fist City jelled from the ashes of various punk bands to form a storming blend of garage-fuelled, surf-tinged, scuzzy rock n roll. The cataclysmic sound that made their riotous second album 'It's 1983, Grow Up' so special has been re-mastered this month, making it heavier, gnarlier and even more of a must-have since its original hometown release on Black Tent Press. What makes this even more exiting is that a new vinyl version will be released on Transgressive Records, alongside a limited edition cassette version on Jen Long's Transgressive imprint, Kissability.

 

Alongside stand out tracks such as 'Endless Bummer', 'Boring Kids' and 'Creeps', this new release is scheduled to have two brand new tracks on board. 'Let's Rip' is a sugary-sweet, violent pop song about a knife-wielding girl gang, and psych post-punk number 'Losers Never Die', written about being an immortal weirdo will also join the record. Both tracks were recently recorded with Felix Fung in his studio in Vancouver.

In fact, all four band members will be ready and armed with new tracks as they prepare to head to the UK this March for another UK tour destroying venues London, Bristol and Manchester. Miss these dates at your goddam peril.
