Fake Shark Real Zombie Reissue Early Albums as 'Don't Forget'
Vancouver's Fake Shark Real Zombie are still getting plenty weird by supporting their 2013 album Liar with some upcoming tour dates, but the eccentric outfit are also about to place the spotlight on their past work via a new two-for-one package of older records.

Titled Don't Forget, the two-disc collection arrives January 28 through Light Organ Records. Included are the band's spazzy 2007 debut LP Zebra Zebra and sophomore follow-up Meeting People Is Terrible, as well as a host of era-specific B-sides and demos.

"The idea of older material seeing the light of day is exciting in that, you can see the progression of where our sound has gone, and while it's much different, it makes a lot of sense," vocalist Kevvy Mental said in a statement. "We've always been a band proud to wear our influences on our sleeve, and we're no different now than we were then. Where we may have had a Bad Brains double time break, we'd probably have an Everything Everything 3 over 4 part now. The spirit is the same." 

Down below, you'll find all the tracklist info, as well as the band's upcoming Canadian tour schedule. Up above, you'll see the Mike Shantz-delivered artwork, which apparently presents caricatures of longtime members Mental and guitarist Wu kickin' it on a couch surrounded by a panoply of psychedelic swirls, blood-flecked bones and castles, and a vampiric worm with a bowl cut.
