Renowned Boston-based ska-punk outfit The Mighty Mighty BosstoneS will unleash their upcoming album, When God Was Great, on May 7th via Hellcat Records.
The LP was co-produced by Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys) and Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong (Transplants, Jimmy Cliff).
The blast-from-the-past full length features previous bandmates and touring pals and celebrates the resilience of the human spirit when faced with seemingly insurmountable problems.
Packed with a whopping 15 tracks, the record was at first influenced by the loss and constraints brought on by the pandemic, but it soon blossomed into a joyful and exciting creative process.
Frontman Dicky Barrett explains that while all-important gigs are off the table for now, the band jumped whole-heartedly into working on the new album. “We started writing at a quickened pace and we were really inspired. As grim as everything around us was in the outside world, this was the most fun we ever had making a record.”
