When the beloved Minneapolis band Nice Purse tragically ceased to be, a smoking hole was left where the bombastic group once stood tall. Fortunately for the humans of the universe, lead man France Camp decided to continue writing and releasing his own brand of surf punk under his assumed name - along with James Wolfeatens, Dylan Rose and Kyle Kimm - to equally awesome returns.

Throughout their blistering eight track debut album, France Camp play smash-n-grab to their rock n roll forefathers, blending and stitching sounds ranging from blues to surf to country twang to brazen punk. Recorded dutifully by Ali Jaafar at Ecstattic Studios in Minneapolis, the band was able to capture the torching, ramshackle energy promised from their often chaotic live performances. With our eighth release, on All Hollow's Eve, Forged Artifacts is excited to bestow unto thee France Camp's eponymous debut album digitally and on chrome cassette tape.

The album will be available digitally on Halloween and on limited cassette closer to the release show TBA.
