Listen to new CKY track Replaceable


CKY have released a stream of their new track Replaceable.

It’s taken from the band’s upcoming album The Phoenix which will launch on June 16 via eOne Music – and follows the video for Days Of Self Destruction which featured a guest appearance from Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds.

Guitarist and vocalist Chad I Ginsburg tells Loudwire: “Replaceable is a rockin’ track. F–king solid. I would say it is generally about anyone that gets in your way, holds you back or slows your potential with their own blatant insecurity, fears or sickness – individuals who you are ultimately and knowingly covering for as they selfishly sabotage you. And then realising how much better you can be without any losers or life suckers as obstacles. Rock’n’roll power. Onward. Strength from within.”

The Phoenix is CKY’s first album since 2009’s Carver City, with Ginsburg previously saying that “any of the bad mojo in this band is gone, as well as any of the bad habits we’d developed over the years.”

He added: “We all got lost in a bit too much drinking and all types of things, but that’s out of the way now. We got a chance to grow up and we’re happier people. Now, we’re so clear—the music is just flowing directly through us without having to sort through all that bullshit.

“We’re so focused. We’ve never had more love for what we’re doing. Being able to play music, our appreciation for it now is just far greater.

“At some point, you think you deserve what you have – you really don’t. We’re very aware of what we do and how lucky we are. That gratitude is just coming through in the vibe of the whole band now.”

CKY have live dates planned throughout the summer, including shows on the Vans Warped Tour.
