THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES have announced the release of a new album for the Spring.
The Boston ska-punk behemoth's eleventh studio album, When God Was Great follows on from 2018's While We're At It and marks their debut for Hellcat Records. Produced by longtime producer Ted Hutt and Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong, the 15 tracks on the album reflect on the peculiar times the band, and the world in general, have found themselves in.
“We were lightly writing songs before the insanity without any sort of timeline in mind," explains frontman Dicky Barrett. "All of a sudden, the world changed and benchmark events in a very long career that we were looking forward to, such as playing with the Madness at the Greek Theatre, were taken away from us. With all of this time on our hands, we started writing at a quickened pace and we were really inspired. As grim as everything around us was in the outside world, this was the most fun we ever had making a record.”
The band are trailing the album release with the song 'I Don't Believe In Anything'...
When God Was Great is set for release on 7 May. It's available to pre-order here.
