Boston ska punk veterans Big D and the Kids Table are streaming a new song entitled “26-Miles of Glory” in tribute to all those impacted by the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Here’s what the band had to say about the track:

26-Miles of Glory began when Peter Payack, a Berklee Professor and marathoner who has run 12 Bostons, called his former student turned friend, David McWane saying – “We just have to do this song; the city needs it.” David agreed, wrote 26-Miles of Glory, locked up with local studio engineer Jay Mass at Get Away Recording and brought in ten talented musicians from his Boston band Big D and the Kids Table (2 marathoners).

The song’s tempo was crafted to have the perfect runner’s pace. The lyrics are spoken from the inner thoughts of a female and male while they are participating in the Boston Marathon. The lyrics also follow the route of the Boston Marathon and pay homage to those who lost their lives, the wounded, and those who helped Patriot’s Day 2013.

We hope 26-Miles of Glory will give the city of Boston and all those who run Marathons all over the world strength and pride.

You can give “26-Miles of Glory” a listen below.

Big D and the Kids Table’s double album Stomp & Stroll came out last June through Strictly Rude Records. They have since released a documentary entitled Built Up From Nothing.

On March 19th, at the Upstate Concert Hall (outside of Albany, NY), I had a chance to hang backstage with Reel Big Fish and do a lil’ Q & A. I specifically talked with Aaron Barrett (Vocals/Guitar) and Johnny Christmas (Trumpet/Backing Vox). These guys as you know are always a barrel of fun to be around.

We discussed touring, the recent retirement of long-time trombone player Dan Regan and his successor Billy Kottage. We also got some great footage and the interview is very entertaining as you would expect. Check it out below, as we discuss professionalism vs. well the opposite of be professional and how that keeps Reel Big Fish going. Don’t Stop Skankin!
