Screeching Weasel Launch IndieGoGo Campaign

Posted by - 02:53 PM on 07/14/14
Screeching Weasel have launched an Indiegogo campaign for their next album.
Baby Fat: Act 1 is the first act of a two-act rock opera I've been working on for the past few years. It’s not a rock opera in the traditional sense - the ones done by bands in the 70s seem to me to be concept records – but an actual opera with a linear narrative, featuring different singers portraying different characters. Baby Fat is the logical next step for Screeching Weasel after years of making themed and concept records like My Brain Hurts, Anthem For A New Tomorrow, Emo and These Ones Are Bitter.

Didn't they kick Ben out? Or did the rest of the band quit? I forget.

The thing is signed "Ben Weasel" so I'd assume the later.

This will be funded within probably just a few days. Sad, because Ben is not a good human being. Making seminal punk rock records does not warrant beating up fellow humans.

I'm pretty sure Dan Vapid and the rest quit the band after that SXSW show
