Seminal ska-punk posse Big D & The Kids Table will be commemorating the 15th anniversary of their classic album, Strictly Rude, with a limited edition double album that contains a 16-page booklet with handwritten lyrics and photos. This special edition includes all new gatefold artwork, 10×10 poster, five previously unreleased tracks and it is now available for pre-order via SideOneDummy Records. The album will also be available in independent record stores on December 2nd. The band will also be inaugurating their longtime support for Pabst Blue Ribbon with their very first merchandise collaboration.

In addition, the band will be teaming up with The Slackers later this fall for a run of dates in support of their most recent album Do Your Art. They’ll be hosting their 25th annual Halloween extravaganza at Boston’s Brighton Music Hall on Sunday, October 30th as well. This year’s A Nightmare Before Halloween lineup also features Left Alone and Warn The Duke.

“Strictly Rude was the album that was needed for the genre of SKA at the time. It redefined the look, the sound, and the swagger of SKA. The songs are a journey, from positive mental attitudes, fiery frustration, to encouraging pro-activism with finding your own voice in this world. The inviting album cover shouts ‘You think you know SKA, well here we are, take a good look at us and if you believe you may be one of us, then join us; You are welcome here.’” (vocalist David McWane)
