They Stay Dead’s Dave Klein Joins Screeching Weasel

Edmund’s Dave Klein, known locally as the powerhouse bass player for They Stay Dead and Euclid Crash has himself a new part-time gig: playing bass in Screeching Weasel.  Klein recorded in Edmund at All-American Rejects’ Mike Kennerty’s house with the rest of the band and the product of those sessions was recently released as the Carnival of Schadenfreude EP (Amazon, iTunes).  The band played their first gig, with the current lineup, in Chicago this past Saturday.  I’ll be doing an interview with Klein in the next few days. 

Congratulations Mr. Klein!  Ben Weasel now has himself an excellent bassist (one of the best in punk rock IMHO) to help keep his songs together.
