Reel Big Fish’s 9th Studio Album, “Life Sucks…Let’s Dance!”

Reel Big Fish’s 9th Studio Album, “Life Sucks…Let’s Dance!”

On December 21st, 2018 fans will rejoice in the streets at the sound of the first Reel Big Fish album in 6 years with the release of Life Sucks…Let’s Dance! The album includes 14 total tracks, including their first single “You Can’t Have All of Me.”

The path to their 9th studio album started out with the admiration of a friendly companion as founding member and frontman Aaron Barrett says, “I have an unhealthy obsession with my dog Walter and I started singing little songs to him about how cute he was. Then I realized I had written some pretty catchy songs. So I changed all the lyrics because I didn’t think anybody would want to hear a rock opera about my dog.”

Barret goes on to share, “We started recording the album in January 2018 and really took our time with it. Our friend and engineer David Irish just finished building his new studio “Pot of Gold” in Orange, CA, and we loved how everything sounds there, and there’s just really good energy and good vibes there and there’s a really adorable studio kitten named Iggy Fluff there, so we may have accidentally made a positive, happy record instead of a pissed off, hateful record, oops…well, there’s a little pissed off-ness in there and some sarcastic, funny lyrics as usual!”

This is the first album since the 2012 release of Candy Coated Fury that saw them collaborating with the likes of Sonic Boom Six and Coolie Ranx. No reported guest appearances on this record as the album will drop following the bands tour of the UK with Less Than Jake.
