On July 23rd, Fat Wreck Chords will be reissuing two classic Canadian pop-punk albums (yes those exist), Chixdiggit!’s Born On the First of July and its follow up, From Scene To Shining Scene.
Both albums were originally released on Fat’s smaller imprint Honest Don’s, but Fat Wreck has given them the re-master treatment and packaged them onto one disc, complete with 8 super rare bonus tracks. They’ve been out of print on vinyl for a while too, so—good news, collectors—Fat’s also giving them a fresh vinyl release (complete with the CD remaster and bonus tracks extras).
“I normally don’t take the time to listen to my own records but I did last year and was pleasantly surprised and actually proud of what I heard,” says singer KJ Jansen. “It reminded me of how much fun those songs were to record and play live. Hearing them again, I have to say these songs are really fucking good.”
We 100 per cent agree, KJ. Check out a re-issue cut from each album below (“Chupacabras” and “Thursday Night”) and pre-oder Double Diggits! here.
