Chubby and the Gang Announce New Album, Release Video for New Song ‘Coming Up Tough’

    Chubby and the Gang have announced a new album titled The Mutt’s Nuts. The UK band’s first LP for Partisan Records was produced by Fucked Up’s Jonah Falco and is due out August 27. Along with the announcement, the band has also shared a video for the new single ‘Coming Up Tough’. Check it out and find the album’s cover art and tracklist below.

    “‘Coming Up Tough’ is about a family member of mine who ended up going to prison at very young age for over 20 years,” frontman Charlie Manning Walker (aka Chubby Charles’) explained in a statement. “He went in as a kid and spent most of his life in the system. Where’s the justice in that? You come out and have to prove yourself to a world that shut you away—what chance do you have? There’s no attempt at actual rehabilitation, no empathy, just a cage to be forgotten about. I wanted the song to feel like a snowball effect. The character gets thrown out of his house at first and it feels almost juvenile, but then as it progresses you realize the real trouble he’s in. And too often once you’re in trouble you can’t get out.”

    The Mutt’s Nuts, which follows Chubby and the Gang’s 2020 album Speed Kills, will include the previously released tracks ‘Lightning Don’t Strike Twice’ and ‘Life’s Lemons’.
