The pop-punk band of party-loving delinquents Pkew Pkew Pkew drop "The Night John Buck Hit Three Home Runs", two weeks out from the September 22nd release of their Siiick Days LP. Aptly titled, this was the same night that vocalist/bassist Mike Warne’s grandfather passed away. However, Warne assures, "This isn't a sad song. Don't be fooled. It's about watching baseball with my best pals for as long as life will allow."

Having grown up watching the Toronto Blue Jays with his grandparents, he reflects on the family tradition and remarks on how sports are intertwined with life. Baseball catcher John Buck previewed the new single with his three sons, proclaiming that “This song is dope!” and adding that "It's funny how the game of baseball creates special moments that are impactful in people’s life! I feel honoured to be the dude that was lucky enough to clip bombs and be a good vibe part of Mike's grandfather's passing. What a gift to put music to memories and tell such a great story."

Siiick Days' concluding track, "The Night John Buck Hit Three Home Runs," is released on the heels of opening track, and lead single, "The Dumbest Thing I Ever Done" about Warne having to sell his Playstation after a particularly rough 2020 European tour. "The rest of the songs, since nothing was happening in the world, came from a place where I was forced to remember important events rather than live and write about them in the moment."
