Finally, the parody band are releasing their first recorded song and, my friends, a coloring book. The catch? The recording will be released as a flexi disc and only available in the coloring book itself. You know, you want it!
Take a look at the leader singer Ronald Osborne talking you through aspects of the coloring book here, on the Mac Sabbath YouTube
These fast food themed music giants are best known for their parodies of Black Sabbath songs by changing the lyrics to suit their themes. Their viral song ‘Pair-a-Buns’ (Black Sabbaths Paranoid) will be released with the coloring book, available on their co-headlining tour.
They have also done versions of Iron man – Frying pan, Sweet Leaf – Sweet Beef, Never Say Die – Never Say Diet and many more. They are loyal to their cause and are die hard Black Sabbath fans, only parodying them.
What are they really about though?
Their manager stresses that as much as they are part of the fast food culture, their songs are actually about warning you about the dangers of fast food. Don’t be fooled by their McDonald’s costumes.
In Pair-a-buns part of the lyrics warn about using ‘feed’ to grow the cows and chickens bigger than they should be. They warn of the shit nutritional values, negative sides affects and even the rubbish low wage jobs in the Mc Industry.
Who are they?
Really, we don’t know. The band keeps their identities anonymous and only talk through their manager. Instead they prefer to remain in character, in-keeping with their theatrics and notorious use of fast food props.
In 2016 it was unclear if they would record and release anything or tour, but now 2017 they have already kicked off the Mockstrosity tour on 8th and will continue until April. See below for dates and stops
