Philly folk punks Mischief Brew have announced they will be releasing a new song called “O, Pennsyltucky!” The song will be appearing on the band’s new album This Is Not For Children, which is due out early next year, but they are planning on releasing the song as a single in digital and cassette format along with two non-album tracks “We are the ground,” and “Dirty overhauls.” The single will be released on October 14th along with a video for “O, Pennsyltucky!” Here’s what the band had to say about that video:
“The video was filmed entirely in the near-ghost town of Centralia, PA, known for the underground Anthracite coal fire that has been burning since the 1960s, and has reduced the population to the single digits. An abandoned highway leading to the town, buckled from the fire’s heat and overtaken by nature, also serves as a setting for the video. The song references Centralia in the lyrics, as well as other places in the state, including Three Mile Island. It is somewhat of a love song to Pennsylvania.”
Mischief Brew most recently released a previously lost album called “Kettle Rebellion” on April 1st of this year. You can read the story behind the record and stream it in full on the group’s Bandcamp page.
