Mean Jeans' new album Gigantic Sike comes out August 30 via Fat Wreck Chords (pre-order), and we've got the premiere of new single "Stuck In A Head." It follows lead single "Party Line" and the party punk theme continues on this one. "'Stuck In A Head' was the first song written for this new record. It’s about feeling paralyzed by ineptitude. When your only skills are partying and playing guitar, the in-between moments can be... frightening," says Billy Jeans. Sonically, it's a Ramones-style ripper and a very catchy one at that. Listen below.

Mean Jeans are also joining their labelmates Teenage Bottlerocket, Clowns, and Jen Pop (of The Bombpops) on the Fat Tour, which kicks off in Long Beach, CA on August 30 and then hits Tempe, various Texas cities, St. Louis, Omaha, Green Bay, Minneapolis, and more. All dates are listed below.
