The Skinny: Crazy Town is back with a brand new single titled, “Megatron.” Featuring founding members Bret Mazur (aka Epic) and Seth Binzer (Shifty) their forthcoming album is stylistically a follow up to their platinum debut, The Gift of Game, which featured the #1 single “Butterfly”.

“Megaton” is about second chances, and grabbing a hold of your life before it passes you by. The song also features a brand new artist, Boondocks – a Marine Corps vet that reached out to Seth on Instagram. Moved by his talent and energy, Bret and Seth invited Boondocks to join them in the studio. “Boondocks was a huge fan and we thought he was really dope as an artist,” Bret says. “Seth and I brought him to the studio to help him with his little project and we ended up doing a song together for our record. It was only after getting to know him and spending time with him that he told us about his honorable service to our country as a combat veteran of the Marines.”

After receiving a great response on tour in Europe last summer, Bret approached Seth about finishing a couple songs they had previously written. The vibe in the studio was so great, a couple of new songs turned in to a whole new record. The forthcoming album, The Brimstone Sluggers will be released this spring via Membrane/The Orchard.
