Mean Jeans signed to Fat Wreck Chords last year, and this Friday (3/18) they'll put out their first release on the label, the Nite Vision EP (pre-order). It comes with the title track, which will appear on their upcoming Tight New Dimension LP (due April 22), and two (amazingly titled) b-sides, "Now I Wanna Be Yr Dogg" and "69 Tears." If you've ever listened to Mean Jeans, you know they've studied the Ramones songbook inside and out, and all three of these songs are fantastic updates on that sound. A full stream of the EP premieres below.

The Mean Jeans are also touring, including a stay in Austin for SXSW this week. Their shows include the Fat showcase which label honchos NOFX are headlining, and the FREE BrooklynVegan day party on Thursday at Cheer Up Charlies with Power Trip, Radioactivity, Citizen, Turnover and more (RSVP).

After SXSW, they'll tour with NOFX (but they're not playing their NYC show). All dates are listed below.
