Long-running melodic punks Face to Face released their very solid Protection on Fat Wreck Chords last year, and now they're releasing "Say What You Want" off that album as a 7" single on May 5. It's backed by the previously-unreleased "I, Me, Mine," which was recorded during the Protection sessions and produced by Bill Stevenson of the Descendents and Jason Livermore. Face to Face is also going on a tour in May and June that hits smaller venues than usual.

The tour brings them to Brooklyn on May 11 at Knitting Factory with Lost In Society (tickets), and Asbury Park in May 13 at House of Independents (tickets). Tickets for the whole are on sale now, and there's also a VIP package that gets you the following:

-Early venue access
-30 min acoustic set
-M&G/Photo/Signing op with band
-1 Exclusive "Econolive 17" T-Shirt
-1 Tour Laminate
-1 Limited edition Flexi Disc feat unreleased single "Wake Up"

All dates are listed, with a stream of Protection, below.
