Published Feb 21, 2019Hamilton hero B.A. Johnston returns with his latest album The Skid Is Hot Tonight later this week, but you can hear the whole thing right now.
That's right, even if you didn't win a chance to hang out with B.A. at a KISS concert next month, you can still spend some quality time with his new album before it officially arrives on February 22 via Transistor66.
You've probably already heard odes to classic rock like "Geddy Lee" and "We're All Going to Jail (Except Pete, He's Gonna Die)," but now you can listen to tunes about drugs, booze and making out at bus stations with the likes of "I Miss 90s Hash," "Canadian Beers," "Flintstones Vitamins and Jamesons," "Sister's Hash, Mom's Smokes, Dad's Whiskey" and "You Kissed Me at the Bus Station."
If you're tuckered out after those, refuel with "Discounted Bacon" and "Jesus Take the Wheel" before kicking back for a big finish that includes "I Don't Use Self Service Machines," "I Stare Into the Void" and "Tired Love."
The album was recorded in Port Greville with Mathias Kom of the Burning Hell, and mixed and mastered at Superbob Studios by Kyle McDonald of Zaum.
It's another hilarious but sometimes surprisingly heart-warming offering from Johnston. Stream The Skid Is Hot Tonight below, and see his upcoming tour dates here.
