Fair Announces New Album?

By in News | 11 Comments

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.


On Fair:
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.

I say we just do a Kickstarter FOR them and then send them the money 😀

That’s a great idea and I would totally back it

Force ’em into doing a record…it’s a little devious but I like it. 🙂

They just confirmed on the post it was a joke.

Jesse Sprinkle shared a stream of a new Blank Books song late last year and I was told the album was nearly done. It’s surprising that we haven’t heard anything more about it. It’s straight up rock and is so good. Maybe they’ll just turn it into the next Fair record (if enough people express interest). I am sure that was the whole intent of the “joke” post, to weigh interest in their music. For me, I’d love another Fair record and Blank Books stuff. Frankly, any of Aaron’s projects sound really good.

Jesse was recently on Billy Power’s Urban Achiever podcast and it sounded like Jesse/Aaron have a project in the works, but the release is delayed due to “contractual obligations” related to Aaron’s solo project just releasing. If I remember correctly, the same thing happened with Ryan Clark’s “Nyves” and “Low & Behold” projects back in 2015.

I would die. But for now, I just cry.

Such a cruel joke

I am much less optimistic that this was anything but an April Fools joke. The difference between this and when Copeland announced their reunion and new album is that Copeland also had preorders and a video of the band playing a new song on their website.

Don’t get me wrong, a new Fair album would be amazing to have, I just don’t think it’s happening.
