New Album from Faintest Idea: Pre-oder Now

We are incredibly excited to announce that we are releasing the brand new Faintest Idea album, ‘Increasing The Minimum Rage’ on 1st April. It’s available to pre-order now on both vinyl and CD.

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.

Make sure you check out the Faintest Idea facebook page to keep up with all the release info as it’s available.

Go pre-order your copy now, especially if you want to grab one of the vinyl colour variations!

“’Ignorance Is This’ is pure testosterone ska, perfect for those with a bit of bite in their skank. 4/5” Big Cheese
‘Faintest Idea are a band deep set in the wave of anti-Coalition politics stirred in UK music.  They are angry, direct and do their genre a great service in their pointed rage and well-crafted Operation Ivy-style ska-punk.  Their sound is at times bouncy, at times raw and always perfectly pinned down, reminiscent of Against All Authority, The Filaments and Have Nots.’ Push To Fire
“All in all, this is a killer second album and is perfect for fans of The Filaments, Suicide Bid, Citizen Fish and UK ska punk in general.”Shot in the Foot
