Last year we were all, “Xmas Has Been X’ed”, but this year we’re gonna give the Holidays a try. And we’re thankful that Masked Intruder is here to teach us about giving and receiving, and even a little bit about borrowing and taking. You guessed it, we’ve got a Yule-themed release from those festive finks and it’s called “Under The Mistletoe”! The 2-song 7" will be out December 10th on Fat Wreck Chords, while those helpful little elves at Red Scare will have the songs available in digital format on 11/26. Step aside Bing and Mariah, these songs are gonna take over your Xmas parties, and we got a chance to interrogate the holiday hoods and got a quote from them here:
“People may not know that we love Christmas, but we do! Santa is like a hero to us. I mean, hitting every house in the world in one night? Truly amazing!”
Lucky for us, Ray from Teenage Bottlerocket payed attention in German class! Listen to “Ich bin Ausländer und Spreche Nicht Gut Deutsch” over at Visions Magazine! The song is off their upcoming 7", American Deutsch Bag out November 26th and you can pre-order here. If you live in EUROPE, get stoked because the guys are on tour with Volbeat and Iced Earth. “Eins, zwei, drei, vier!!!”
