It's been four years since the release of The Ziggens' last studio effort, the critically-acclaimed Pomona Lisa, and twelve since they co-founded Skunk Records with their good friends Sublime. In the early '90s, Skunk Records, The Ziggens, and of course, Sublime, helped to shape the face of the West Coast music scene. By blending skater ska, sweet surf melodies and punk sensibilities, these three entities created something all their own. Now, The Ziggens are back in action with a fresh new self-titled release, a (mildly) more mature attitude, and an extensive fall/winter tour. The album plays host to a myriad of musical styles. It "Ziggs" and Zaggs, hitting catchy pop gems, percussive punk, country ballads, and just about anything else you can dream up along the way. Stand out tracks include "I Get Yelled At A Lot" and "Just The Way You Aren't," while the witty song title award goes to "I Fought The Lawn."
