Wiretap Records and Friend Club Records have joined forces for a massive Vagrant Records tribute compilation featuring 30+ bands from both rosters. The album is called ’Undercover On The Streets, A Vagrant Records Tribute’ (a nod to the classic Vagrant comps Another Year On The Streets), and it features covers of The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, The Anniversary, Saves The Day, Face To Face, Dashboard Confessional, Senses Fail, Thrice, Paul Westerberg, No Motiv, Alexisonfire, Balance And Composure, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The 1975, Pete Yorn and many more. It’s a great tribute to the iconic label, who already gave the comp an unofficial seal of approval.

Today, we are happy to share two songs of the compilation: Milwaukee punk outfit Avenues cover Face To Face’s ‘Shoot The Moon’ , while American Television tackles Boxer’s ‘You And Me’. Both of them do a killer job and stay pretty close to the original songs.

The compilation also features songs recorded by Burnt Tapes, Common Sage, Lovebreakers, Parting, Catholic Guilt, Bristol To Memory, Least, Mercy Music, Love Again, Floorbird, Talk Show Host, Taken Days, Movin In Stereo, Wolves&Wolves&Wolves&Wolves, Lost In Society, Odd Robot, Tiny Stills and many more. You can find the full track list below.

‘Undercover On The Streets, A Vagrant Records Tribute’ will be out digitally on Friday May 20th (pre-save).
