Face to Face Announces New Tour + New 7″ Coming!
2016 was a great year for Face to Face! They celebrated their 25th anniversary, reunited with Fat Wreck Chords to release their ninth album, Protection, and then released remastered editions of their first three records (long out of print in vinyl). This year is looking to be killer for the band, too! They’re releasing a new 7″ called Say What You Want, a double A-side single that has a previously unreleased track from the Protection sessions called I, Me, Mine. And now, the band has announced a new tour that will include them hitting smaller clubs around the nation so fans can enjoy a more intimate experience.
Trever Keith commented:
“20 years ago, we jumped in a van and performed in very small clubs across the U.S. on a tour we called ‘Econolive.’ This May, we are setting out to recreate this experience with ‘Econolive 17.’ This tour is all about getting up close and personal with our fans in a way we haven’t done for a couple of decades. There’s nothing quite like punk rock shows in a small club. You get the energy, volume, and sweat all in your face. You can’t help but be a part of the action. The tour celebrates the release (May 5th) of the seven-inch single for ‘Say What You Want’ from the record Protection.”

-EARLY VENUE ACCESS
-30 min acoustic set
