Two New Holiday Songs From The Tossers

THE TOSSERS RELEASE TWO HOLIDAY TRACKS

“Merry Christmas” and “Auld Lang Syne”

 

Famed for their gutsy and resolute blue-collared anthems, THE TOSSERS are stepping in a different direction by releasing two songs for the holiday season – an original, ‘Merry Christmas,’ and the traditional New Year’s poem ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ penned by Robert Burns in 1788.

 

Guitarist Mike Pawula explains, “’Merry Christmas’ is a song that Tony (Duggins, mandolinist and lead vocalist) wrote a few years ago that he had been kicking around and we planned to put it on tape. Once we did, it felt like we should record a companion song, so naturally the classic ‘Auld Lang Syne’ seemed like the perfect fit. We have never done anything for the Seasons like this and hope people enjoy it.” Duggins adds, “God Bless you all, and may each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.”

 

Listen to ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Auld Lang Syne.’

 

Earlier this year, “The world’s loudest drinking band” premiered “Smash The Windows,” a Nitro Milk Stout via Revolution Brewery, a tribute to their 2017 album of the same name. Smash The Windows is an anthemic and rollicking, rowdy journey through Irish American culture coupled with melancholy overtures inspired by devotion and pride. It is truly a piece of work that fits America’s current socio-economic state of affairs and will strike a chord with many lovers of genres ranging from country, punk, rock and traditional Irish folk.

 

THE TOSSERS will announce their first tour dates of 2019 shortly.

 

“Merry Christmas” and “Auld Lang Syne” can be purchased here.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
