We are incredibly excited to announce that we are releasing the brand new Faintest Idea album, ‘Increasing The Minimum Rage’ on 1st April. We will ship all order out a week before release.
We go back such a long way with Faintest Idea. They have played our live events for years and years and are one of a very small number of bands who featured on our volume one compilation who still regularly gig. This will be the third album they have released on TNS. We’ve seen them go from one of the most exciting up and coming UK bands to one of Europe’s most established, relevant and widely regarded ska punk acts.
Thoughtful and well-informed lyrical content is presented in the form of upbeat, dancey yet edgey, two tone fuelled and brass driven punk rock. It is a pleasure to see the crowd reactions that this band regularly receives and it is very much deserved. This album is the first with the current line up and it also features Vic Ruggerio on keys.
Faintest Idea say “the new record sounds heavier both musically and lyrically than our previous releases. With free market capitalism still rampant things don’t look too great for the younger generation. The album is a reflection of the time we find ourselves in, it is the sound of people trying to keep hope in a seemingly bleak future.”
The band will be releasing a series of music videos to coincide with the release and there will be several options for t-shirt/hoodie bundles. It will be available on vinyl (100 pink, 200 translucent green) and CD. There will also be a free dub remix of the album available in around 6 months time. ‘Increasing Minimum Rage’ is available to preorder now from TNSrecords.
