Published Sep 12, 2016As previously reported, Calgary pop-punk mainstays Chixdiggit opted to reflect on every single tour stop they made in 2012 for their new EP, conveniently titled 2012 . Before the collection hits digital and physical retailers, you can hop-and-bop along to the epic tour recap via an exclusive Exclaim! stream.
2012 plays out as one extended, nearly 25-minute cut. Over a litany of sugarbuzz power chords, KJ Jansen starts off by discussing how the band began a European trek with empty stomachs at an Amsterdam airport. Later, the band head back to their home province to shout out Edmonton and the Oilers. All throughout, Chixdiggit explore the rigours of tour life, the good folks you meet along the way, and the godsend that is a day off.
