On April Fool’s Day, Fair announced a new album entitled “Luncheons and Wagons” to be released on July 8th, 2017. Naturally, skepticism on the legitimacy of this news is high. However, Fair’s Facebook page has been quite active the past few weeks. Now that we’re a few days into April, there has been no mention whether the announcement was indeed an April Fool’s joke. Many readers will remember Copeland announced they would be returning with a new record on April 1st, 2014. Conversely, July 8th, 2017 is a Saturday, which deviates from the standard record release day on Friday. Until more information surfaces one way or another, we’re simply left to speculate, but here’s hoping we’ll get another album from one of Tooth & Nail’s best kept secrets.
Fair is a studio band comprised of Aaron Sprinkle (vocals, guitar, piano), Erick Newbill (guitar), Joey Sanchez (drums), and Nick Barber (bass). They have previously released two albums on Tooth & Nail Records: The Best Worst-Case Scenario in 2006 and Disappearing World in 2010.
