The Dirty Mugs Ready First Full Length

The Dirty Mugs have made their way out of The Woods and into the studio, currently working on their first electric LP Wild Fire. The hardcordian wonder punks are working up 16 songs to release by the end of the year. Rumor has it they are hoping to have it finished and released by the end of September.

The band is currently in the editing and mixing stage, with most of the songs lacking only one or two vocal parts. Wild Fire is being mixed by Mugs guitarist and lead singer Eric "Grampa Friday" Coates and accordionist and  backup vocalist WreckinBall Duvall.

Although the band hasn't officially released a tracklist for the album, a sneak peak to yours truly showed there are mostly songs that have been written in the past year, skipping most of the older songs, as well as a traditional song arranged by the band. The songs come together with a good amount of variety. Some tracks blast out fast punk riffs while others growl along at the pace of a waltz.

For fans of the band, and I speak from experience in this regard, this album is well overdue. For those who just can't be satisfied with the acoustic sound or wish Weigh Anchor had more tracks on it, Wild Fire could prove to be well worth the wait.
