Wisconsin’s Screeching Weasel is working on a new album, their first release since 2005. Drummer Adam Cargin tweeted about working on demos. Since you probably don’t want to click the link, I’ll just transcribe it here:
“Had a great time working w/ @mikeaar on the Weasel demos. He is a total pro+one of the nicest guys I’ve worked with. Can’t wait for round 2.”
Now, this “mikeaar” is Mike Kennerty of All American Rejects. What?? Obviously, Weasel’s got a reason to have him recording with them. In fact, Ben Weasel said how he makes the tunes “better without fucking them up”. Well, that’s good. Weasel and Kennerty have collaborated in the past, on Weasel’s 2007 solo album These Ones Are Better.
Screeching Weasel will most likely be releasing their new album on Asian Man Records.
