With the conception of the FAT MUSIC series of compilations, starting with Fat Music For Fat People and including the classics Survival of the Fattest and Live Fat, Die Young, Fat Wreck Chords established one of the most recognized branding campaigns and simultaneously spawned a niche market within the punk genre. Throughout the 90 s and early 2000 s Fat comps became the gold standard of label comps and were a phenomenon amongst punk fans. The easily discernable quality of each release in the FAT MUSIC series elevated them from the quagmire of comps compiled in a ham-handed fashion, with no regard for the merit of the album as a whole. The value associated with the FAT MUSIC series is manifest in the fact that each release has done upwards of 200,000 in sales. Despite all this success, the series was put on the back burner for quite a few years, but so much has transpired over the past 8 years, with a bevy of new acts being ushered into the Fat fold(s), that it seemed appropriate to resurrect the FAT MUSIC tradition. The result is the 7th installment of the series, Harder, Fatter + Louder! The album consists of 22 tracks that run the gamut from some of our established heavy hitters including NOFX, Against Me, NUFAN, Strung Out, and The Lawrence Arms. While the cover art is a bit of a departure from all other illustrated covers in the series, the content is exactly what fans have come to expect, including 5 as yet unreleased tracks, filled out by recently released hits from all the label favorites. Harder, Fatter + Louder! Is relentless from start to finish, displaying why Fat has ascended to its current level and how it has earned a new generation of fans while maintaining the old.
