Reggae punk legends Mad Caddies drop new single ‘Baby,’ announce Canadian and US Tours

The Mad Caddies are one of the leading bands in ska and reggae punk. Their long career has taken them to all corners of the world. Now the time has come for the band to travel to new shores with the release of their new album ‘Arrows Room 117’ which is being released jointly by SBÄM Records in Europe and 55 Rose Records in the USA.

‘Arrows Room 117’ is the band’s first album since 2018’s ‘Punk Rocksteady.’ SBÄM is coming off its biggest festival to date and is at work on a 90s punk rock documentary, while overseeing a growing roster of bands like Pulley and more. Together with 55 Rose Records, an Orange County-based music label founded by John Barrett, they will release the eighth Mad Caddies album in 2024.

‘Baby’ is a classic punk rock polka with a horn line that won’t leave your head a groove that will keep your butt shaken and a vocal line that you won’t stop singing,” says Sean Sellers about the new single.

“This is a super fun country rock song shining light on the golden era of this style of music. It reminds me of Elvis with the production, and how the horns came out. When I first started dating my girlfriend and we fell for each other. I just told her to call me baby and not say my name. I think you get the point,” says Chuck Robertson.

“This album is very personal for me,” elaborates Robertson“It represents 3 years of hard work back in the woodshed, while half the world stood still. During these strange times I tapped into a new source of creativity and shared new experiences with new friends and great musicians. This body of work and these songs showcase pain and betrayal, love and loss and the bright light of new beginnings.”
