Fooligans announce debut LP; release single “Bad Memories”

The year is 2005. You’re 11 years old, and you’ve managed to score a crumpled $10 bill from under some furniture. Fast forward 2 hours.

You’re in the mall, newly rich with your $10. Sam Goody is the spot. You thumb through the alternative section because you’re a lil badass. You find what you’ve been looking for. It’s what you’ve craved. The new album “Fooligans” by Fooligans on CD. You spend the next year sitting in front of your boombox listening to what will become all time Fooligans classics. You buy their shirts at Hot Topic. You live for this shit. You are a Fooligan.

"Fooligans" by Fooligans out June 29
MIGHTY
MIGHTY
MIGHTY, the grimey project of Pittsburgh slacker Angelo Fiaretti, is off-kilter garage rock with (more than a modest) grunge influence. His lyrics revolve around the subjects of revenge daydreams, paranoia, drugs, and self discovery—when he isn’t poking jabs at the gloomy culture of high school bullying (fuck those guys, right?). MIGHTY was conceived after Fiaretti, now age 20, dropped out of school when he was 16 in an effort to distance himself from the threats of local assholes, and choosing instead to spend his days immersed in the local DIY punk and indie scenes. In the cold, dim basements of office buildings and neighborhood garages, and in community-run art galleries, Fiaretti found his voice and MIGHTY was created.

In 2013, Fiaretti moved to Atlanta looking for a fresh perspective and new collaborators. It was there that the young songwriter connected with Daniel Gleason (Grouplove, All Get Out) who would help bring MIGHTY from raw, mangled scrawls to refined underdog anthems. The debut MIGHTY EP “Bye, Have Nice!” simultaneously embraces classic influences (Dylan, Cobain, Page & Plant) and forges new territory for the Pittsburgher. The 5 tracks were recorded over the course of an impetuous 5 days on a shoestring budget entirely in Fiaretti’s kitchen (jokingly referred to as Ant Hill Studios, for a serious infestation). The debut EP is rounded out by Gordon Keiter (All Get Out) on drums, Gleason on bass, guitar and keys, and CJ Ridings (Big Jesus) on bass, guitar, and keys. Gleason also served as producer, with Ridings engineering and mixing.

“Bye, Have Nice!” is scheduled for a November 6th digital release, with a late winter vinyl release to follow. EP2 is currently being worked on.

If there’s anything that is sure about this skuzzy, endearingly messy, burgeoning artist, it’s that his power is in his vulnerability. Fresh into his 20s, Fiaretti still has many mistakes to make, but if “Bye, Have Nice!” is any indication, expect to hear about them in the most honest voice he can find.

MIGHTY is a proclamation from a small, unlikely voice that demands to be heard. Whether you like it or not is just, like, your opinion, man. He’ll still be skateboarding in his driveway, either way.
HOWL
HOWL
HOWL "is a raw, sometimes brazenly sexual rock and roll band that gets your feet moving and your palms a little sweaty. Denny Hanson and Chris Nylund have not only created music to easily sink your fangs into, but have done so with a more simplistic approach as a two piece, crafting songs with raw emotion and alluring synchronicity."
