Episode #61: Flatfoot 56 Interview and a Special Contest!



Welcome to the new episode of Rocket Fuel!


Before I get into the details of this new episode,

I want to tell you about the VERY special contest

that we are running along with it.


My guest on this episode is Tobin from the

Chicago celtic-punk band Flatfoot 56, who

have recently put out their new album Toil,

which is out now on Paper + Plastick.  We

are parterning with the great folks of the label

to offer you a special contest with amazing prizes. 

Here is what's up for grabs:


A vinyl copy of the new album Toil,

a Flatfoot 56 shirt and

a very special laser-etched Flatfoot 56



This is one of the best prize packs we have ever

offered before, so we thought we would do a

unique contest to match.


To enter, take an original picture that answers

this question: "What does Toil Mean to You?"

Once you have taken your pic, you can submit

 it to us by tweeting the photo (via instragram or

not) to us and tagging it with #ToilContest, by

posting it on our Facebook page with the same tag,

or emailing it directly to us at

This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  with the subject

Toil Contest.


All of the valid photo entries will be sent

directly to Flatfoot 56 and the band will

choose the winner!  To hear Tobin's

insight as to what toil means to him,

be sure to check out the podcast

episode because I asked him that

question in our interview.


The contest runs until 11:59 PM on

Wednesday, August 22, so get out your

camera and good luck.


To purchase Toil, go here.


Now on the new podcast episode:


On this episode of the show I play brand new

tunes from The Gaslight Anthem, Reel Big Fish,

Fang Island and many more, including the world

premiere of a tune from the awesome Welsh band

Bedford Falls.


I talk with Tobin, the lead singer/guitarist of the great

Chicago celtic-punk band Flatfoot 56, who just put out

an awesome new record.


I also review the debut full-length Spite by the North

Carolina-based band Old Flings.
