Bowling for Soup have launched a new PledgeMusic campaign to fund their "Official Greatest Hits Volume 1" album. It looks like they'll be re-recording the songs for the release (to get around licensing issues with their past labels maybe?) -- check out all the information here.
As of now, the album is 17 classic BFS songs from the first 10 years of our band re-recorded to bring them the glory we think they deserve and 1 brand new original song!

People on Vacation is the unlikely pairing of Bowling For Soup's Jaret Reddick and Smile Smile's Ryan Hamilton. Despite their differing backgrounds, the Texans come together to combine the pop punk sensibilities of the former with the indie rock background of the latter. The result will please fans of both bands and newcomers alike. Thanksgiving comes early on their AP.net profile, where you can stream "It's Not Love." Their debut EP, The Carry On, comes out tomorrow. Leave your thoughts in the replies.
