February 14, 2024

Mad Caddies Release "Green Eyes" from Upcoming Album, 'Arrows Room 117'


​The new release is the last single before the ​brand new Mad Caddies album, 'Arrows Room 117' drops on SBÄM Records and 55 Rose Records. 'Green Eyes' is ​the opening track of the album and ​perfectly ties the Caddies' last album to the new one. Vocalist and Gutairist, Chuck Robertson said this about the opening track,

'Green Eyes is a Reggae love song inspired by my travels with my girlfriend Tanya and experiencing new places through her beautiful green eyes. During our travels, she showed me amazing places in Western Canada and I showed her the beautiful state of California. This catchy groove is reminiscent of our popular song Drinking for 11. The track also features accordion by Brian Mann who has been featured on many hit records by Oingo Boingo, Kenny Loggins, David Lee Roth, Disney Films and many others.'

The Mad Caddies are one of the leading bands in ska and reggae punk. Their long career has taken them to all corners of the world. Now the time has come for the Caddies to travel to new shores with the release of their new album ‘Arrows Room 117’ which is being released jointly by SBÄM Records (Europe) and 55 Rose Reccords (USA). ‘Arrows Room 117’ is the band’s first album since 2018’s “Punk Rocksteady.”

SBÄM has recently just made with their biggest festival to date and work on a 90s punk rock documentary, and has already managed bands like Pulley in their roster. Together with 55 Rose Records, an Orange County-based music label founded by John Barrett, they sign the eighth Mad Caddies Album for 2024.

“This album is very personal for me,” elaborates Robertson. “It represents 3 years of hard work back in the woodshed, while half the world stood still. During these strange times I tapped into a new source of creativity and shared new experiences with new friends and great musicians. This body of work and these songs showcase pain and betrayal, love and loss and the bright light of new beginnings.”

The Mad Caddies (or the Caddies) is an American ska punk band from Solvang, California. The band formed in 1995 and has released seven full-length albums, one live album, and two EPs. To date, Mad Caddies have sold over 500,000 albums worldwide.
