When we interviewed Jess and Dan from Fear of Men back in July, they’d just finished touring with Best Coast, had recorded Mosaic – a 7″ for the Too Pure singles club which got released in October, and were about to get their heads down and start work on their debut album. They’ve just finished recording but to tie up a few loose ends before it comes out and to help get newer fans up to speed with their back catalogue, the band are putting out a collection called Early Fragments, which brings together their 7″ and cassette releases so far, as well as a new track Seer:
Early Fragments comes out on marbled black and white vinyl and is released by Kanine Records on 11th February. Technically, it’s a US released but you’ll be able to get hold of it from Resident.
The full tracklist is:
Later in February the band are touring with Veronica Falls (sadly there’s no Brighton date), and are then heading over to the states to play SXSW, and Festival NRMAL in Mexico.
