Mucca Pazza @ Auditorium Theatre earlier this month (more by James Richards IV)
30-piece circus punk marching band Mucca Pazza are set to release their new album, Safety Fifth, on June 12 via Electric Cowbell. The album's packaging was designed by Kathleen Judge, who we have to thank for many Chicago-centric concert posters, and you can grab a full-color poster by preordering Safety Fifth. Check out the album's cover art/tracklist, and a new video for the LP track "Boss Taurus" at the bottom of this post.
Mucca Pazza will celebrate the release of Safety Fifth with a show at the Hideout on June 12. They'll be playing the new record in its entirety. Advance tickets are on sale. They'll also be playing a FREE show at the Garfield Park Conservatory on June 20, Taste of Chicago on July 12, and New Belgium Brewing Co.'s Chicago Tour de Fat stop on July 21.
All dates are listed below, alongside Safey Fifth's album info, and their new video.
