We are thrilled to announce that Casper Skulls have joined the BUZZ fam! Formed a little under a year ago they have rapidly built a reputation as one of the most exciting new bands in the city. Following an early self-released 7 inch and a Canadian tour supporting Solids and the Dirty Nil, the band have began working with producers Josh Korody (Fucked Up, Dilly Dally, Weaves) and Shehzaad Jiwani of Greys on an EP slated for release on Buzz in the Fall.
Vocalist Neil Bednis addresses issues of political corruption in “Mink Coats”, he tells Stereogum:
"I started writing the song in early 2014 before Casper Skulls was a band and it was inspired by the Rob Ford fiasco that was happening at that time. Although that time has come and gone with Mr. Ford, the song's sentiment still holds true for other ludicrous power-hungry politicians. As long as politics exist, so will corruption and lies."
