“How the shit did we not already have Regina, Saskatchewan-based rockers The Johnny McCuaig Band on our radar?” is exactly what our embarrassed journalists and editors were asking themselves when an email about TJMB hit our main inbox. Okay, so we were new to the crew, but that didn’t stop us from instantly loving their new single “Here We Go” and diving into their catalogue. Whether you’re about to crush a haggis eating contest, are cheering on the Roughriders as they enter Mosaic Stadium, or maybe making your way into the UFC octagon, this song is 100% guaranteed to fire you the hell up! Even better... we’ve got the premiere for the track’s video right here!
“Here We Go” can be found on all major digital services, including Spotify and Apple Music, and is a precursor to the group’s upcoming studio recording Lions as Ravens - the album drops on September 20th, 2018, and can be pre-ordered here. Fans of Andrew WK and Danko Jones are going to dig these dudes.
Commenting on the new video, band leader Johnny McCuaig hit us up with the following thoughts:
“There has been a lot of anticipation building for this video because of how the song has been received and personalized by fans and professional sports teams. Having this song play to 30,000 fans as the Saskatchewan Roughriders took the field has definitely been one of the feel good moments of the year for all of us. Thanks to director, Dave Benedict (Square Egg Visions + rock band Default) and the Pile O’ Bones Derby Club we feel the concept, attitude and bands image are all represented in a way that matches the songs high intensity and feeling!”
