Swingin’ Utters – Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun – Out Dec. 8th!
SWINGIN’ UTTERS, a band that’s been around even longer than Fat Wreck Chords, have long been a staple of the San Francisco Bay Area punk scene. On December 8th, in celebration of the band’s three decades, Fat Wreck Chords is proud to announce: Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun, a 33-song best-of compilation that serves as a testament to Utters’ peerless punk rock attack. Available for pre-order today, this anthology touches on every era of Swingin’ Utters — from their 1995 debut album The Streets of San Francisco, all the way up to 2014’s Fistful of Hollow. For the uninitiated, Drowning In the Sea, Rising With The Sun, offers a cohesive rundown on a band that’s impossible to sum up. While there are plenty of gut-level punk songs, you’ll also find tracks that incorporate roots music and folk traditions…all of which speaks to the band’s blue-collar ethos. Starting today, catch their ardent and impassioned live show, as they weave their way across the United States. They’ll be joined by Darius Koski, who will be pulling double duty by opening the show in support of his upcoming album, What Was Once Is By And Gone, out this Friday and also available for pre-order!
