Punk Rock Factory are paying homage to the world of musicals with their new full-length album. Curtain up!
Punk Rock Factory have announced that they are releasing a new album in 2023, and it’s going to be another celebration unlike any other.
It’s called ‘It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through’, it’s going to be released on March 31, and it’s going to be focusing on the fantastical world of musicals.
The band had this to say about it:
“Our new album is a punk rock homage to stage and screen and in our opinion, our best work to date. We found out before that Disney has a devoted cult following and fans of musicals are no different. We knew we had to push the boat out and step up our game. Because who doesn’t love a musical?”
The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
01. Rewrite The Stars (The Greatest Showman)
02. You’ll Be Back (Hamilton)
03. Waving Through A Window (ft. Jeff Stinco – Simple Plan) (Dear Evan Hansen)
04. December, 1963 (Oh What A Night!) (Jersey Boys)
05. Defying Gravity (Wicked)
06. I Dreamed A Dream (Les Miserables)
07. City Of Stars (La La Land)
08. Mamma Mia (Mamma Mia)
09. Shallow (A Star Is Born
10. You’re The One That I Want (Grease)
11. I Will Follow Him (Sister Act)
The first taste of it is here as well. It is the opening track, ‘Rewrite The Stars’ which is taken from The Greatest Showman.
And the video features an appearance from none other than Sean Smith!
The band had this to add about it all:
“The album’s first single ‘Rewrite The Stars’ (from the movie ‘The Greatest Showman’) also inspired the album’s cover art. In the music video for it, we accelerated the aging process with some awesome special effects makeup and also brought in our good friend Sean Smith of The Blackout to play a cinema usher! The video depicts that no matter how old we get, we’ll still be best mates pissing around… And Sean Smith will always have questionable hair!”
