Mad Caddies announced that their new album Dirty Rice will be released on May 13th via Fat Wreck. Now they have premiered a new song called “Brand New Scar” on Altpress.com. Plus, their NYC show was moved from Gramercy Theatre to Santos Party House. See the rest of the tour dates here.
The album opens with “Brand New Scar,” a punk-meets-ragtime song keyboardist Dustin Lanker tells us just proves that some things can only improve with time.
“This album was a long time coming, but that afforded us a lot of time to live with the songs and fine tune the arrangements. This is one of the songs that benefited from it,” says Lanker, “We wanted it to be raucous, but not feel like just a smash-fest. The dynamics became an important part of the arrangement, and highlight the irony of the story: along with the frustrated lashing out comes the introspection and doubt.”
