Since reactivating in mid-2016 the Squirrel Nut Zippers have been performing to packed houses across the country and around the world. As Mathus has said since the band’s re-launch, ‘it’s not a reunion, it’s a revival!’ And the revival last year included the band’s first new studio album in eighteen years titled Beasts Of Burgundy. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Jazz Albums Chart upon its release.
Between 1995-2000 the Squirrel Nut Zippers sold over three million albums. With grunge, and alternative rock in full swing back in 1995, the Squirrel Nut Zippers debut album The Inevitable sounded like nothing happening musically at the time. NPR was the first to take notice followed by an appearance on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. The band toured their debut album heavily in North America during 1995 and 1996.
