Canadian pop-punkers Chixdiggit! have announced details of their new album, which will be called 2012. The album title and cover art (which you can see to the left) are an obvious tribute to fellow Canadian rockers, Rush.
I’d tell you to look below for the new album’s tracklisting, but this one consists of just one song, “2012,” clocking in at 25 minutes. Fat Wreck Chords claims it’s the longest punk song ever recorded, but I think Fat alums Bracket might have something to say about that.
Along with the announcement of the new album, Chixdiggit! also announced a short tour across Canada. Check out those dates below.
2012 will be the first new release from Chixdiggit! since their 2011 EP, Safeways Here We Come.
The tour comes ahead of the band’s next release, and first full-length album, Get Right, which is expected to be released later this year on It’s Alive Records.

Listen up pop-punk fans, we’ve got a tasty treat for your eardrums in the form of a brand new track off Pittsburgh punk act Mace Ballard‘s upcoming EP Lanterns. I implore you to give “Aurora” a listen below but don’t let the catchiness of the tune full you, this song deals with a very real and very dark piece of our recent history. A piece that is tragically repeating itself with alarming frequency.
Vocalist Chris Daley comments on the song’s subject matter:
“This song was started during the Aurora, Colorado theater shootings. Some of the imagery and lines are very literal from the new stories “part of the show” referencing how at first, theatergoers thought the shooting was just sound effects, for example. There are many more references. When we were about to finalize the structure of this song, then the Newtown shootings happened. I thought about rewriting it. But it turns out, everything still applied. The repetitive nature of the gun-fueled tragedies is a sad song on repeat, tolerated by many. It’s essentially a challenge to the listener to think/speak/act differently the next time something like this happens, until enough progress is made that there won’t be a next time. “

Colombia Stages and La MaMa present to you the world premiere of the upcoming Screeching Weasel rock opera titled Baby Fat Act 1. The production company will take the music of Chicago’s own Screeching Weasel and turn it into a stage production with a full ensemble and cast. The show will take place at the Ellen Stewart Theatre in NYC from July 21st-23rd.
In May 2015, Screeching Weasel released Baby Fat Act 1, a rock opera of sorts, that was picked up by director Michael Scholar soon after its release. He quickly envisioned characters, plot, and stage performances to go with the band’s new musical direction. Ben Weasel comments:
“If I were British I’d be chuffed; a Californian, stoked; Audrey Hepburn, delighted! After thirty years of composing music and lyrics for rock albums, I can’t wait to take on the challenge of writing for the theatre. Michael’s track record in combining rock and theatre has gained my trust and confidence in his ability to bring Baby Fat to vivid life on the stage.”
To keep up to date with tickets and other information you can visit La MaMa’s website.
Baby Fat Act I was released in May 2015 and is the first of the two part rock opera to be released by the band. the 27-track album was funded entirely through crowdfunding campaigns and Recess Records, who also helped with the finances. Part two is set for release sometime in 2017.
