Reel Big Fish To Deliver Candy Coated Fury in July

Reel Big Fish have set a July 31st release date for their 7th studio album, Candy Coated Fury.

"This album is a lot like our first two albums. It's got a lot of the same intensity, frantic energy in the music, and the same sarcastic sense of humor. I think these are the fastest songs we've done since those albums," Aaron Barrett, founding vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter says. "We're finally just doing what Reel Big Fish does best, and that's what we did on those first two albums."

Candy Coated Fury is Reel Big Fish's first album of newly recorded original material in five years. Overall, it's the seventh in the band's twenty year history. "Candy coated fury pretty much describes what Reel Big Fish does," Barrett says of the significance of the new album's title. "It's hateful, mean, sarcastic, and, sometimes sad lyrics, over happy, wacky, silly, joyous, fast music that makes you want to dance. This album is mostly love songs, but bitter, angry, hateful love songs. Just about everybody knows what it's like to be in a bad relationship. These songs could be sung by a 15 year old about his first love-gone-wrong, or by a 55 year old about a bitter divorce after 30 years. They're bad-relationship songs that everybody can relate to."
