Less than a year after debuting with Hot Weekend (review and mp3), Chicago's The Streets on Fire are getting set to unleash another batch of explosive rock and roll - think post-punk on speed - in the form of an LP called This Is Fancy. The record isn't out until July 20, but the band are offering the opportunity to download one of the new tunes for free right now by signing up to their mailing list.
You can also get your hands on the entire album in both vinyl and CD format two weeks before the release date by going to the record release show at Double Door on Friday, July 2 (also with Big Science, Blah Blah Blah and America Owns the Moon - tickets here). These bands know how to put on a show, so it's bound to be a damn good time.
If you need further proof that The Streets on Fire are all kinds of kickass, just take a look at the epic new album artwork above. Enough said.
