Michigan ska-punk staples Mustard Plug will released their seventh album, “Can’t Contain It”, via independent punk label No Idea on January 14, 2014 (pre-order here). To give you a taste of what’s to come you can stream “White Noise”, a new track off “Can’t Contain It” below.
“Can’t Contain It” was funded by an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign and is the band’s first album in six years, following 2007′s “In Black and White.” Many of their musician friends (Dan Potthast, Sean Bonnett, Mark Petz, Corey Ruffin) were tapped to contribute and the album was mixed at Bill Stevenson’s Blasting Room Studios (Descendents, Hot Water Music, Bouncing Souls). Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb the Music Industry) designed the album packaging, while noted artists Craig Horkey and Larry Kole created alternative limited edition album covers and posters.
“I think this record is going to force a lot of people to re-assess what Mustard Plug is,” says vocalist Dave Kirchgessner. “I feel we’ve turned a new chapter in the band. Instead of just trying to document a bunch of songs that we play live, we took our time and got more creative in the studio and built recordings that stand on their own. Our line up is the tightest its ever been. This album is strong evolution in our sound and our art while still staying true to the goal of playing party music for punk rockers,” he explains.
