Considered one of the flagship acts of the label Red Scare Industries, the lineup of Chicago’s The Falcon is a veritable who’s who of Midwestern punk. Members of The Lawrence Arms, Alkaline Trio, The Loved Ones, and even famed punk troubadour Brendan Kelly have been amongst its ranks. Their full-length debut, 2006’s “Unicornography”, has gone on to be the highest selling album released on Red Scare, and features a particular, raunchy blend of hardcore fervor and dangerous rock n’ roll rhythms that have made the group instant underground classics in punk circles.

CCCP 195 THE FALCON Gather Up The Chaps CD LP
After “Unicornography”, the band went silent for a decade as the band members tended to their other projects, but now in 2016 The Falcon returns with “Gather Up The Chaps”, a new studio full-length on Red Scare Industries. The album combines the pop-punk snottiness of their contemporary groups like The Lawrence Arms and Alkaline Trio with the anthemic working-class punk rock of groups like Gaslight Anthem and Against Me!

Available on compact disc and vinyl from Traffic Entertainment Group.
