Fire Sale, the punk rock supergroup composed of former members of Face to Face, No Use For A Name and The Ataris, have announced they will release their new two track single, The Albatross, on the 9th February. The Albatross starts with an intricate bass line that builds momentum into galloping pop-punk drums and the gang vocals that Fire Sale has become known for, lyrically it delves into the difficult issue of gun violence and scream for a change. The flip side features I Remember Damage, a track that features melodic vocals that ride the wave of driving power chords and a lead guitar riff that dances all over the fretboard. The single was mixed at The Blasting Room and has hand-painted art by Mark DeSalvo.

“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. The Albatross is a song that we have been trying to write since the beginning of the band. If you grew up listening to anything on Fat or Epitaph…it is a huge nostalgic slap in the face.”
