The Skinny: The Vancouver-based riff rockers in La Chinga will release their Freewheelin’ full-length later this month. Recorded and produced by drummer Jay Solyom in his home studio with the tracks “K. I .W.” and “Right On” captured by Eric Neilson and mastered by Chris Goosman (Acid King, Dixie Witch, Solace, Sasquatch), the ten-track Freewheelin’ will see release via Small Stone Recordings on March 25th on CD, digitally and limited vinyl with pre-orders available at THIS LOCATION.

The band recently unleashed “Gone Gypsy” for public adoration. Written and recorded in a single day at the La Chinga headquarters, the tune, “is the story of a man who cannot stand still, who feels the pull of the road, the moon in his head and the sea in his veins. He knows he needs to get away and to hell with the consequences…he tries to say he is sorry to those he leaves behind, but his apologies are as thin as his wallet. Merle Haggard called it ‘White Line Fever’ and he was right. It is a sickness that lives in the hearts of many…but few are the ones crazy or brave enough to answer it’s lonesome and wild call.”
