Chixdiggit

What’s Canadian, has been dormant for the past five years and began as nothing more than a figment of some crazy Albertan’s imagination as a way to sell tee shirts to high school kids? If you said the Yeti or Abominable Snowman, you’re completely nuts, as those are both from Tibet. I’m actually talking about everyone’s favorite long running pop punk upstarts Chixdiggit! And do you know why I’m talking about them? Well, it’s because they’re back from the land of hockey puck dreams with a new album of asskicking jams, entitled Safeways, Here We Come which is available Feb. 15, 2011 from your favorite label run completely by semi-rehabilitated perverts, Fat Wreck Chords, and to top it off, Chixdiggit! is bringing their fifth-of-a-century of rock and roll experience to your crappy town for you and your buddies to tremble before and behold firsthand. So, uh, get stoked, bro.

Okay, quick history lesson: Chixdiggit! was originally conceived by four guys who couldn’t play instruments after they made enough money selling tee shirts around their high school (for an at-the-time fictional band called Chixdiggit!) to purchase some drums. If that doesn’t make sense, read on, because that’s just how stuff works in Chixdiggit! land. That was in 1991. Since then, Chixdiggit! have toured the world, put out records on indie juggernaut Sub Pop, wacky Fat Wreck subsidiary Honest Dons, Bad Taste (where they re-recorded and re-released a new version of their very first album…Weird, right?) and most recently Fat Wreck Chords proper. They’ve got more releases than a minimum-security prison in Holland and they’ve been on hiatus at least once, or maybe even twice, depending on who you ask, or maybe they’ve just been up to other shit. Hell, who knows?

Well, here’s what we do know: they’re back in 2011 with their first release in five years, Safeways, Here We Come, which is the culmination of their 20 years of friendship and buzzsaw pop-flavored punk rock mastery.
