Happy New Year!!!!
It is 2018 and we are heading headlong into a brand new year for Flatfoot 56. 2017 proved to be a great year for us as we released our newest album and did a pretty heavy amount of touring. It also proved to be a year that marked the closing of a season. On new years eve we said farewell to two guys who have been with flatfoot for a long time. Brandon and Conrad played their last show as current members of the band. They both have entered into a select group of guys who are still all considered family members of Flatfoot 56.They are both amazing musicians and we love them and support their individual decisions to start new seasons in their lives. They will both be deeply missed.
Flatfoot 56 will continue onward in the new year and continue to bring our brand of Celtic punk wherever we play. We also have plans for a 7" release that will be coming out in the spring. The album will be called "The Vancouver Sessions" and will feature 5 tracks. This release is a concept record and will sound a bit different from the normal flatfoot sound. We decided that we wanted to do a more traditional Celtic sounding record where we would revisit 4 older Flatfoot songs and remake their sound. The resulting tunes turned out to be amazing and we can't wait to let you all hear it. The new album will also feature a brand new track called "How long". Check back for more details as we are still in the early stages of rolling this release out.
We also have a few shows planned for this upcoming March for the St. Patrick's day season. Be sure to check out our shows page. We will be celebrating St Patrick's day a bit different this year then in years past. We decided that we would bring the show down to Florida for the holiday and play a festival in St Augustine at the Barley Republic House. We will be playing with Hoist the colors, 6"10 and others. Other shows will also be happening closer to home in the month of march. Keep an eye out for more announcements.
We can't wait to see what this year has in store. Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you soon.
