Fine China was formed in Phoenix in 1997. Soon after, they released their first 2 EP’s and a 7″ on So Cal indie label Velvet Blue Music. The band went on to tour extensively and to release 3 additional full length records on various labels until 2005. The most recent release, The Jaws of Life, received wide critical nods, and TV show placements.
In December of 2016 Jaws was re-issued on 12″ vinyl with a newly recorded bonus track (to coincide with a 10 year reunion show). Fine China has always been a guitar-driven, pop band at heart, and the new track did not disappoint. It was met with lots of applause and the vinyl quickly sold out.
Now twelve years after their last album, Fine China is back home with a full length recording for Velvet Blue Music, exactly twenty years after their first recordings for the same label! This new batch of songs was recorded in songwriter Rob Withem’s studio over the past year, and will be mixed by Bob Hoag, the band’s longtime producer and engineer, at Flying Blanket Recording in Mesa, AZ. The new full length, entitled Not Thrilled, is set for release on 2/23/18 and will contain 11 new new tracks, preceded by a 7″ single, You Are Not The Future, in January with an additional 2 bonus tracks.
