Season 3 - Ep. 22 - Discussing New Album The Book of Morön with Canadian Punkers The Moröns

I am going to be speaking with the Calgary-based punk band The Moröns today about their new album The Book of Morön which I think is potentially the best punk album of the year, and we will also be talking about some of the other great things the band has been up to, their history, and why they think Canada is so damn punk these days.

If you haven’t been paying attention, well, you probably need to start listening to these bands from the Great White North, eh?

We will be speaking with the band about all of this and more right after this.
