After releasing their acclaimed 2020 debut album Speed Kills, U.K. punk band Chubby and the Gang have signed to Partisan Records (Fontaines D.C., Laura Marling). Today, they’ve also shared a previously unheard track from the Speed Kills sessions called “Union Dues,” plus an cartoon character-packed video for their song “All Along The Uxbridge Road.”

“Union Dues” resembles the throttling, no-nonsense punk-pop of their debut LP, complete with harmonica wails, bluesy piano and big-time rock ‘n’ roll chords.

Earlier this year, Paste caught up with frontman Charlie Manning-Walker after their first American tour. Revisit that interview here as Manning-Walker discussed their influences, working on their debut with Fucked Up’s Jonah Falco and why their U.S. tour was “fucking mayhem.”

Speed Kills has also been digitally reissued and re-released via Partisan today, and will be physically re-released on Nov. 20. The album was remastered for vinyl, with standard and limited editions available. Chubby and the Gang are returning with a new album in 2021.

Watch the video for “All Along the Uxbridge Road,” and listen to “Union Dues” below.
