The Mighty Mighty Bosstones post making of “The Magic of Youth” video, Dicky Barrett interview

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones‘ new album “The Magic Of Youth” will be released tomorrow, but you can check out “The Making of The Magic Of Youth” part 1 right over here!  You can also click here for a great interview with singer Dicky Barrett!

“The Making Of…” is a short video featuring some sounds from the new record, Joe Gittleman’s surprise musical talents, and of course some mockery of trombone genius Chris Rhodes being a Yankees fan.  Dicky’s interview contains some gems, such as his admission that being Dicky Barrett is “absolutely ridiculous. 95 percent foolish and the other five percent is ridiculous. But I will tell you this: I enjoy it. I love being myself and I love being in the Mighty Mighty Bosstones”.

“The Magic Of Youth” is the ninth studio album from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, coming tomorrow on the band’s own label Big Rig Records.

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones announce new album “The Magic Of Youth”

Ska powerhouses The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have just announced that they will be releasing a brand new album titled “The Magic Of Youth” on their own label “Big Rig Records” in December.  The writing of the album started shortly after the release of their last release “Pin Points and Gin Joints” in 2009 and was produced by Ted Hutt (the Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys).

“If the question is why at this point in time, in 2011, do we need a Mighty Mighty BossToneS record, then the same question should be asked: Why do we need good music?” says frontman Dicky Barrett. “We make really good records, and this one that we are currently making is no exception-it’s damn good. On top of that making damn good music with each other is something we love doing”

“The Magic Of Youth” will contain 11 new songs and should arrive just in time for the band’s annual Hometown Throwdown which will take place Dec 28-30 at the House of Blues in Boston.

Random Cover Song Thursday: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones cover Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get.  We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs.  Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs.  Good or bad.  Intriguing or mundane.  We’ll let you be the judge.

This week it’s The Mighty Mighty Bosstones covering the Metallica’s hit  song “Enter Sandman.”  Check out the cover and compare it to the original right here.

The cover song appears on their 1994 EP “Where’d You Go“ which was released on Taang! Records. The original version appears on Metallica’s 1991 “Black  Album.”
