With a world burning at the stake, we are lucky that Nerf Herder has created the perfect distraction with their brand new single, “We All Got COVID (Except for Linus).” Check out what frontman Parry Gripp had to say about the song below:
“This is a song where we recorded the music a few years ago before the pandemic and has been sitting around waiting for lyrics,” reveals chief Herder Gripp. “And then COVID happened and we got COVID. And I'm like, 'Boom! Let me just make this song really fast.’ I recorded the vocals while I had COVID. Within three days after [recording] the thing, we were just going to release it. And then we thought, 'Let's release it through FAT.'"
“We All Got COVID (Except for Linus),” is an appetizer for more Herder activity. On June 24th, Fat Wreck will be reissuing the band’s third album, 2002’s American Cheese, on vinyl and digitally. Previously released on Honest Don’s, and featuring such smudged gems as “Mr. Spock” and “Welcome To My World,” Cheese is a SoCal talisman no pop-punk practitioner should be without (especially with the inclusion of seven digital-only bonus tracks).
