Squid Pisser are streaming a cover of The Crucifucks‘ “Marching For Trash.” This track features Arrow DeWilde (Starcrawler) and it will appear on the band’s new album “My Tadpole Legion,” which is set to be released on April 14. Squid Pisser’s Tommy Meehan commented:
“I remember the first time I heard ‘Marching For Trash‘ by The Crucifucks. I was working the 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. shifts at this tiny hotdog shop on Hollywood Blvd. All the punk rock kids that worked there were always introducing me to new music. The Crucifucks were one of the bands that were in constant rotation on the stereo while I was serving chili dogs and lemonades to the club kids of Hollywood, and I’ve wanted to cover one of their songs for years. When Squid Pisser was getting ready to go into the studio to record ‘My Tadpole Legion‘, we added this song at the very last minute and were very excited to experiment with the sonic and textural backdrop for Arrow DeWilde’s vocals. Getting Arrow to sing on the track was an exciting and obvious choice for Seth and me. We wanted to embrace and echo the snotty and angsty brattiness of Doc Dart’s original vocal delivery and Arrow was really able to channel that.”
Squid Pisser have premiered a new video for their new song “The Everlasting Bloat.” This track features Nekrogoblikon’s Nicky Calonne and it will appear on the band’s new album “My Tadpole Legion,” which is set to be released on April 14. The following was said about the video and song:
“The Squid Boys disguise themselves as Cow People, People from the Future, and even lampshades as they explore the serene and overgrown jungle sections of the LA RIVER… They visit a video store, see a snail, play with time itself at the ancient time clock, and even pet a dog as they pray to The Humongous Cephalopod of the cosmos that Nicky doesn’t use a ball peen hammer on their skulls while he’s in SQUID MODE…Lyrically, The Everlasting Bloat tackles important economic and socio-political issues…”

Tommy Meehan commented:
“I remember eating so many fucking hot dogs while we were writing this album. The song kinda feels to me like relish and chewed up hot dog chunks and grape jelly and tadpole eggs all being blasted and splattered against naked flesh. Pelting and grinding into the skin.
We shot the music video for ‘Liquified Remains‘ with legendary underground film director, cinematographer, vfx artist, and all around creative badass, Mike Manasewitsch. During those few days of filming we would just get all the SQUID DUDES together to hang out and drink a bunch of JOLT COLA so that we could get really hyper and cruise around until we found a fun looking location.
The sewers of Downtown Los Angeles are always disgusting to film in (we had done a few sewer shoots with my other band Cancer Christ down there before, so we knew the tunnels pretty well). We also broke into a train car for some of the performance stuff. We found a fire extinguisher, set it off all over the place and then just started pissing on everything…
The next day we drove out to Malibu to get some more shots (and to go surfing alongside all the rich, entitled and beautiful assholes over there). We saw a huge dead sea lion washing up on the beach (right across the street from the shrimp shack that “Tyler” works at in Point Break). We also ran into Jonah Hill that day. He was walking down to the beach to do some surfing with some of his boys.
At the end of the video, there’s this nice looking place with all of this fur and sparkly shit all everywhere. That was in Korea Town at this place called SPARKL PALACE or SPARKL HOUSE or something. Some girls condo… I know we were also drunk filming in a 7/11 at some point too.
This is the first song that Seth and I ever wrote together so it’s fitting that it’s the first one that the world gets to hear from Squid Pisser. It’s the only track on the album that I do vocals on. Initially we were looking for a full time singer but then we thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be rad to get a bunch of guest vocalists from bands that we both love to fill out the track listing?’
So, that’s exactly what we did. We collaborated with singers from bands like: Punch, Melt-Banana, The Locust Nekrogoblikon, Wacko and more… We got to work with a ton of our favorite musicians on the record and it’s truly been a dream come true.”
