Greetings, P.K. McKenzie here. Just wanting to drop a couple of lines concerning our epic new 25th anniversary release, "Two Devils Will Talk.” We all are very happy with this new album in terms of writing and performing, and the technical crew did a stellar job. I am listening to it constantly, trying to hear any flaw and as yet, one cannot be found. This makes us very happy. All of what we have done and what we do is for you, our fans. It has been a pleasure to have entertained all of you over the last 25 years, and we look forward to 25 more. On behalf of The Real McKenzies and myself, it has been an honor to be given yet another world tour. We shall see you all soon, and please don’t be too shy. Come to the merch booth for a beer with us. xox

Need a playlist for your special lover today? Western Addiction has you covered with not one but 2 Valentine’s Day Spotify playlists! ♥
Here’s Jason from Western Addiction setting up his playlist:
“I realize that a list of “love songs” may sound unusual coming from us considering I’m usually screaming at people, but I’ve actually been thinking about this playlist for quite some time. The only two criteria for the selections were that they would have to resonate with someone who has a working knowledge of punk and it has to elicit a certain “feeling.” Maybe that’s love, who knows. There is some old, some new, and some necessary clichés. Play this for someone special and let me know what I forgot. We wrote our first “love song” called “Red Emeralds” that’s on the new record and we can’t wait for you to hear it.
WA vous aime,
Chad from Western Addiction on his playlist: “Love songs don’t need to be soft and cheesy, though. Here’s a punk rock V-Day playlist”.
Make sure you check out Western Addiction’s new album – Tremulous – OUT ON March 10th!
