Looking to get everybody in the summer mood, SoCal ska-punk outfit Mad Caddies have just shared their reggae rendition of Green Day’s “She” taken from their forthcoming Punk Rock Steady covers album which features hand-picked punk rock classics from Fat Wreck Chord’s head honcho, Fat Mike.
Featuring tracks like Misfits’ “Some Kind of Hate,” Descendents’ “Jean Is Dead,” Against Me!’s “Sink, Florida, Sink,” Bad Religion’s “Sorrow,” and more, Mad Caddies’ new LP will cover a lot of punk rock history (as well as a lot of different sounds) in just 12 tracks.
“We had a grand vision that we needed to have four-to-six sounds on here,” says vocalist Chuck Robertson about the band’s forthcoming release. “We needed to have traditional ska, super horn-heavy dancehall songs, reggae, SoCal stuff and we needed to have something new and weird that we could make our own.”
Coming in as one of “[Fat Mike’s] dream projects for a long time” according to guitarist Sascha Lazor, Punk Rock Steady is sure to be a can’t miss release later this year.
