Every year, it’s almost inevitable that something gets forgotten in the Christmas shopping. Texan pop punk favourites and huge fans of Christmas Bowling For Soup capture the spirit of those missing items perfectly with “Corner Store On Christmas”. A pop punk alternative to the traditional twelve days of Christmas, musical fans of any genre will easily find themselves identifying with this song, whether it’s forgetting the batteries for kids toys, or the last minute present for a relative, it’s all captured in true Bowling For Soup style.
Corner Store On Christmas is a song very dear to Bowling For Soup frontman Jaret Reddick’s heart. Here’s a quick lowdown from Jaret on the track:
“This is my flagship Christmas song. My take on “The 12 Days of Christmas.” I actually got the idea from a fan…we all do it…forget a few things and have to run to the only shop that’s open on the big day. Careful with this one…it’s an ear worm!”
Bowling For Soup will be returning to the UK on their first ever tour of some of the UK’s coastal and seaside towns – the Surf The UK Tour, taking place in May 2021 (COVID permitting). Supporting BFS on this run will be US alt-rockers Lit, and Bowling For Soup’s longtime friends and collaborators The Dollyrots.
The tour will begin in the very grand settings of the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool on the 1st of May and hit different points of the coast over the following week. This includes stops at some places Bowling For Soup have had great fun in on tours gone by such as Bexhill and Margate, as well as some new locations such as Scarborough.
