For the first time in 11 years, you can listen to a brand new Screeching Weasel song! Their brand new album is called First World Manifesto, which comes out on March 15th on Fat Wreck Chords. SPIN is streaming a song from the new album called “Beginningless Vacation” here. Sounds pretty cool!
Ben Weasel was also recently interviewed by the MTV Music Book Club about his favorite piece of literature. Screeching Weasel is hitting the road throughout 2011, with announced stops in Texas, the East Coast, and the Screeching Weasel 25th Anniversary weekend in Chicago.
