Fire Sale Unleashes Explosive New 2-Song Single "The Albatross"

Fire Sale, the punk rock supergroup comprised of seasoned veterans from Face to Face, No Use For A Name, and The Ataris, is gearing up to set the music world ablaze once again with their latest offering: a scorching 2-song single titled "The Albatross". Set to release on February 9th, this powerhouse release promises to be a game-changer in the punk rock landscape.

What sets "The Albatross" apart is not just its electrifying sound but also the passion and purpose behind its creation. Mixed at The Blasting Room, the legendary studio owned by punk icons The Descendents, and adorned with hand-painted artwork by Mark DeSalvo (known for his collaborations with NOFX and Lagwagon), this single is a testament to the band's unwavering commitment to craftsmanship and authenticity.

"The Albatross" kicks off with an infectious bass line that builds into a frenzy of galloping pop-punk drums, setting the stage for the signature gang vocals that Fire Sale is revered for. But beneath the surface lies a deeper message, as vocalist Pedro Aida explains: "The Albatross is about the frustrating and hopeless feeling we have when we send our children to school and the worry of bullying, bad grades, and drug use have been overshadowed by the fear that they won’t come home at all."

Guitarist Chris Swinney echoes this sentiment, describing "The Albatross" as a nostalgic homage to the punk rock ethos of yesteryears: "If you grew up listening to anything on Fat or Epitaph…it is a huge nostalgic slap in the face."

Accompanying this hard-hitting anthem is the equally compelling B-Side "I Remember Damage," featuring melodic vocals soaring atop driving power chords and a lead guitar riff that dances across the fretboard with infectious energy.

As anticipation for "The Albatross" reaches fever pitch, fans can pre-save the single here to ensure they don't miss a beat of Fire Sale's latest sonic assault.
