When you think of Fat Wreck Chords, you may instinctively think of such household punk acts as NOFX, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, or Less than Jake. Then there's Strung Out, who have been rocking the LA punk scene since 1992, but where's the love?

The boys of the Simi Valley quintet have been fusing metal riffs with punk rock speed and thoughtful, melodic vocals since 1992. With their 7th full length album entitled "Blackhawks over Los Angeles" released during the summer of this year, Strung Out has once again managed to make sure that socks are adequately rocked off.
