Grand Rapids ska punk legends Mustard Plug have announced that they will be releasing their 8th studio album titled ‘Where Did All My Friends Go?’ on Friday, September 8th. The band will be joining the ever-growing and exciting roster of Bad Time Records who have carefully cultivated a community around all things ska over the last five years.
Once again, Mustard Plug have teamed up with Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore at the infamous Blasting Room to produce an album that captures everything that has made Mustard Plug a fan favorite over the last 30 years. On their lead single, ‘Fall Apart,’ the band weave catchy upstrokes with a rhythm section that feels heavily inspired by new wave and boy does it feel refreshing.‘Fall Apart’ is available on streaming platforms today and Bad Time Records have launched vinyl preorders for ‘Where Did All My Friends Go?’ which you can find HERE.
