Renowned tattooist Corey Miller (L.A. Ink) teamed up with veteran SoCal punkers Face To Face to design the album artwork for their latest release, Laugh Now, Laugh Later, which hits the shelves (and iTunes) today, May 17th. To celebrate this collaboration - and the band's NYC appearance tomorrow night at the Best Buy Theater - Inked Magazine and the crew at Kings Ave NYC are sponsoring an in-shop meet-and-greet and record-signing.
If you're in the NYC metro-area (and a fan of solid punk rock and fine-line artwork), be sure to stop by Kings Ave NYC tomorrow afternoon to grab a copy of the album and have it signed by Corey and the band. Attendees will also be eligible to win a pair of tickets for tomorrow night's concert!
