Flipper prep new studio and live records

San Francisco’s cult punk outfit Flipper, widely considered to be the progenitors of grunge, are set to release a brand new studio album entitled Love, their first in over 16 years, along with a companion live album, Fight. The line-up features the three original members, Bruce Loose, Steve Depace, and Ted Falconi, while new member Rachel Thoele replaces the recently departed Krist Novoselic. The two records, featuring Novoselic on bass, will hit the shelves simultaneously on May 19th via MVD, with Jack Endino co-producing both. Domino, meanwhile, will re-release the band’s back catalogue in June.
