The Fat Wreck Chords family has just gotten a little bit larger with their signing of reggae/ska band Ellwood. If you have never heard of Ellwood, don’t be sad, they’re relatively new. Formed by Mad Caddies vocalist Chuck Robertson and his long-time friend Todd Rosenberg (drums (original Caddies drummer)), Ellwood, “was born out of boredom and the desire to make a soundtrack to long, empty days, which, if you look at history is pretty much the inspiration for all bands that are worth a shit.”
The band added a couple other members, refined their sound, and now the hard work has paid off. Ellwood will be releasing their debut album, Lost In Translation, on May 11 through Fat Wreck. Keep checking back on Dying Scene for updates on this expected release and if you want to hear what the band sounds like, you can stream a few of their tracks here.
