Star Fucking Hipsters announce record release show details

Music News | By on Oct 23rd, 2009

Star Fucking Hipsters have announce their record release show details. Show is happening this Sunday at Europa Bar in Brooklyn in support of new album, “Never Rest In Peace,” out this week on Alternative Tentacles!

“Never Rest In Peace” is the stellar second album and Alternative Tentacles debut by the smoking-hot punk supergroup featuring Sturg “Stza” Crack (Leftover Crack, Choking Victim), Frank Piegaro (The Degenerics), and Nico de Gallo (Casa de Chihuahua), as well as members of Hold Steady, Ensign, Big Attack!, Awkward Thought, and Aloke.

STAR FUCKING HIPSTERS returns this time for a much fiercer round of sonic glory, combining insanely catchy melodic punk and metal, with the token ska tune. The band has clearly grown since their first album, 2008’s Fat Wreck Chords release “Until We’re Dead.” A year’s worth of star fucking live shows, writing, and off-the-map creativity from central STAR FUCKING HIPSTER, Sturg, pays off with rock-solid songwriting and a sharper edge. Songs with an aggressive political slant take on topics like Native American issues (“Banned From the Land”), and a woman’s right to choose (“Church & Rape”). “Never Rest In Peace” is Sturg’s most heartfelt and emotional album to date.

Recorded almost entirely in the band members’ bedrooms at the world famous C-Squat on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the thirteen songs on “Never Rest In Peace” leap out of the stereo and club your not-so-friendly neighborhood cop with blunt songs of rebellion and revolution. Recorded by up and coming production wizard Ryan D. Jones and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Beastie Boys, Metallica, Ramones, Rancid, Nirvana, Slayer), this is the best sounding record Stza’s done since Choking Victim’s classic “No Gods/No Managers.”

The record includes cameos from Dick Lucas (Subhumans U.K., Citizen Fish, Culture Shock), Jasper Pattison (Citizen Fish, Culture Shock), and Bryan Kienlen (Bouncing Souls). It includes art by famed DIY artists Fly (“PEOPs,” Dog Dayz) and Paul Barron. SFH have toured the U.S. and U.K., and are planning a West Coast Tour this November with Citizen Fish (dubbed “Cracktoberfest”) including a performance at the Alternative Tentacles 30th Anniversary Festival.
