Since their beginning in Manhattan, Kan., on Halloween 1996 (they have since spread out to Lawrence and Kansas City, KS), Ultimate Fakebook has trekked across the entire U.S. many, many times over. Touring with such heavyweights as The Get Up Kids, At the Drive In, MXPX, Good Charlotte, Rival Schools, Sloan, Reggie and The Full Effect, Saves the Day, Dashboard Confessional, Hot Rod Circuit, Further Seems Forever, Nada Surf and Hey Mercedes, UFB have amassed a loyal and fanatic fanbase built solely on their live shows and top notch work ethic. After two full length albums on Noisome Records (1997's Kissing Parties, 1999's This Will Be Laughing Week), the second of which was re-released in 2000 by Sony / 550 Music, UFB's latest effort is "Open Up and Say Awesome" (2002, Initial).
