Published May 22, 2009Word on the ol' interweb is that Massachusetts's favourite third-wave ska band, Big D and the Kids Table, have finally figured out their collective act and finished up a sixth full-length, which is being given a July 7 due date.
Dubbed Fluent in Stroll, the album follows 2007's Strictly Rule and will be the band's sophomore opus for punk staple SideOneDummy Records. To give us all a little taste of what the nine-piece band have been up to, the label has posted two songs ("Doped Up Dollies on a One Way Ticket to Blood" and the title track) on their official website.
The album was produced by Joe Gittleman (the Mighty Mighty Bosstones) and mixed by Paul Q Kolderie (Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr., Uncle Tupelo) at Camp Street Studios in Cambridge, MA. See below for the official tracklisting.
