Chicago-based Celtic punk rock band Flatfoot 56 are streaming a song from a forthcoming EP. The Vancouver Sessions will see the group take on four tracks from their back catalogue and one new effort with a fresh set of ears. Using traditional folk instruments such as the Irish whistle, Uilleann bagpipes, and the Irish bones, the band have re-imagined their earlier material into pieces that are “thoughtful—and tender, at times—reminders of what life can be if we slow down and take lyrics in”, according to vocalist Tobin Bawinkel.
The full EP will be out on May 25. For now, head over to RiotFest, where they have premiered the track “Cain.”
