Stray Bullets Re-Release “The Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune”; Are They Back Together?

The Slings and Arrows of Outrageous FortuneBoston punk act Stray Bullets have re-released their 2004 album, “The Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune” on their own bandcamp. Originally released on Fork in Hand records, it’s hard to come by online (Interpunk is sold out and Amazon has a few copies for $80). I’d only heard of the band having read the bio of the Have Nots, but I finally got to see them when they opened up Skalapalooza this past October. They sounded just about like a proto-have-nots act (so, for fans of Rancid and Suicide Machines) and that was just fine with me.

So, they play a reunion show, re-release a record, and then played a few shows this month. Does this mean they’re back together? I certainly wouldn’t mind. Like them on Facebook.

Give the record a listen and then consider buying it.
