MEAN JEANS kommen aus Portland und sind schon länger Freunde der Fat Wreck Familie. 2016 erscheint das neue Album der Punkband nun über das Label aus San Francisco. Unten gibt es mit der aktuellen Singles-Collection einen Eindruck zur Band - ausserdem sagt Trommler und Sänger Andrew (aka Jeans Wilder) folgendes zum Signing:
"The very first show I ever went to was in 96 in Vienna, Austria to see NOFX, Weezer, and Lagwagon. I remember purchasing a Lagwagon ringer tee and putting it on immediately, because wearing a shirt of the band you are seeing is the cool thing to do. Especially since I hadn’t even heard Lagwagon before. A year later I bumped into Chris Flippin outside of a show at that same venue and he brought me and my friends on the Lagwagon tour bus. We talked about how Blink-182 had dropped off the tour because they had to film the video for Dammit and about how the new album Double Plaidinum was somewhat of a departure from Hoss. Later that year I shit my pants* on the way home from a Good Riddance show. Many many years later I acquired Tré Cool’s cell phone number and tried to trade it to someone for Fat Mike’s cell phone number. I was denied. Needless to say, myself and the Mean Jeans are very excited to be joining the FATfamily. It is 5:30am on our way to FEST so excuse the boring story, it’s the best we got at this time of day. * I had borrowed my friend’s pants that day so I guess technically I shit HIS pants…"
