In the late 1990s, back when Ultimate Fakebook
not rhyme with the world's most popular social networking site, the Manhattan, KS band released some much-loved power-pop albums.
The first of those was Electric Kissing Parties
, and yesterday Rocket Heart Records
announced that it's reissuing it on vinyl -- a limited pressing of 500. Hooray! But wait, there's more!
The new vinyl will also feature an exclusive bonus track "Rocket Heart's On Fire," a song recorded around the time Electric Kissing Parties
was made. And the band has a Kickstarter
going, with some special limited-edition types of packages available for superfans.
Also! Ultimate Fakebook has announced four winter tour dates, including a December 23 date at the RecordBar and a New Years' Eve performance at the Little Apple in Manhattan, KS. More info on everything here
