Chubby and the Gang have announced their signing to Partisan Records (Fontaines DC, IDLES). Along with the news, the group have shared a video for “All Along The Uxbridge Road,” directed by Lluis Fuzzhound), and a new song entitled “Union Dues,” originally written/recorded alongside their debut LP Speed Kills.
Fronted by local electrician Charlie Manning, Chubby and the Gang have been leading a pack of bands coming out of a new wave of British Hardcore. Underneath an unrelentingly fun concoction of hardcore, pub rock, doo wop, and blues, Speed Kills boasts songs of deep substance and political conscience with a precise sense of time and place. Produced by Jonah Falco of Fucked Up.
Speed Kills has been digitally reissued and re-released via Partisan today, and will be physically re-released on November 20th. The album was remastered for vinyl at West London’s Metropolis Studios. The standard edition will be available on yellow vinyl and include a cartoon sticker sheet. There will also be a limited-edition version that includes a black-and-white color-in sleeve with crayons. Chubby and the Gang will return with a new album in 2021, more details on that coming shortly.
