Damn, when’s the last time you heard anything from Jersey hardcore punkers Bigwig (aside from today’s Music For Cancer compilation)? According to their singer, Tom, the band has been MIA for so long because he was having to attend to some health issues and asserts that any rumors about Bigwig disbanding are untrue. Says Tom of his absence:
It was hell not being able to do the one thing I truly love, playing and touring with my friends. During the time off from touring, I was able to spend much needed time with my family and friends. I’m so grateful for their support! Thanks to all of you who wrote letters of support, encouragement and inspiration, it means the world!
Although the band has undergone some lineup changes for various reasons, the frontman promises us, the fans, some tour dates and new releases this year. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many details on which to elaborate, but the mere fact that Bigwig is back in action is newsworthy enough, no?
Bigwig’s last release, Reclamation, came out an eon ago (2006) on Fearless Records. Stay tuned to DyingScene as we will certainly be keeping close watch on what the band has cooking.
