Fair Announces New Album?

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.

Emery has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund their 7th full-length record. The campaign goal is $50,000, and only a day after launching it is already 65% funded at the time of this publication.
