In 2016, face to face kicked off their 25th anniversary with a bang! They reunited with FAT for their ninth album, Protection, and then released remastered editions of their classic first three albums, long out of print on vinyl.
Say What You Want, a double A-side single containing a previously unreleased song from the Protection sessions called “I, Me, Mine.” This song is a classic single track—an absolute
barnburner—that just didn’t fit the vibe of the Protection album. Additionally, face to face
have decided to return to their roots with an intimate North American tour. Billed as “Econolive 17,” the tour will see the band hit smaller clubs across the nation, with lots of special fan
Trever Keith elaborates, “20 years ago, we jumped in a van and performed in very small clubs across the U.S. on a tour we called ‘Econolive.’ This May, we are setting out to recreate this experience with ‘Econolive 17.’ This tour is all about getting up close and personal with our fans in a way we haven't done for a couple of decades. There's nothing quite like punk rock shows in a small club. You get the energy, volume, and sweat all in your face. You can't help but be a part of the action. The tour celebrates the release (May 5th) of the seven-inch single for ‘Say What You Want’ from the record Protection.”
