As a special treat for all you emo kids out there, six-man band Forever the Sickest Kids re-released their debut <em>Underdog Alma Mater</em> on July 7, courtesy of Universal Motown Records. Hopefully, a sign the band will be returning to it’s original roots, the deluxe edition of <em>Underdog</em> features six extra tracks including three demo and an acoustic demo that have never before been released. Other than the new additions, the album is exactly the same, so I would recommend heading over to iTunes and purchasing the individual tracks or “completing the album” if you’ve already purchased the original release.
Even better than the re-release of <em>Underdog</em> is the fact that FTSK have announced the upcoming release of three, yes count ’em THREE mini-albums or EP’s that will contain 6 songs each and are to be released between now and the end of 2010. Look for the first installment this fall, and expect the next to come after the new year. We’re all very excited to hear the new material, and if FTSK has their hats on straight, let’s hope they give us our money’s worth. Keep your eyes peeled for more information as it’s released, and check out the band’s MySpace here.
