Bruce Lee Band announce new album, share song ft. Fishbone’s Angelo Moore (watch the video)
Mike Park's latest iteration of Bruce Lee Band -- which also includes Jeff Rosenstock, Dan Potthast, and Kevin Higuchi -- released the great Division in the Heartland EP last year, and now they've announced a new album, One Step Forward. Two Steps Back., due "late spring/early summer or whenever the vinyl shows up" via Mike's Asian Man Records. The first single is "Did You Find The Money Farm?," which features Fishbone's Angelo Moore on sax, We Are the Union/Skatune Network's Jeremy Hunter on trombone, and Brian Lockrem on trumpet, plus group vocals from Logan Hammon (Small Crush), Alyssa Moore (Moore Family Band), Randy Moore (Moore Family Band, Get Married), Angelina Banda, Mike Huguenor (Hard Girls, Death Rosenstock), Gilbert Armendariz, and Laura Hammond.
As you'd probably expect from the title, it's a political song that takes on power and greed, and it finds the band in mid-tempo ska-punk territory with a dark, minor-key edge. It's great stuff, and it comes with a Chris Graue-directed video that stars Mike Park and Angelo Moore, and uses all kinds of imagery that reflects the song's themes (and also features a part where Mike Park flips through classic ska records). Jeremy Hunter makes an appearance during their trombone solo. Check it out below.
