Last week came the very sad news that Chi Pig (real name Ken Chinn), frontman of long-running Canadian punk/melodic hardcore band S.N.F.U., had passed away at age 57, following serious health issues that he had revealed last fall. After the sad news broke, Chi Pig's bandmates have put out a song that Chi recorded before his passing and intended to be released on the day of his death. "Mr Chi Pig wanted to give all his friends and fans one last gift the day his soul took flight. enjoy," they wrote.
The song is called "Cement Mixer (to all my beautiful friends)," and it's a beautiful, heartbreaking song in which Chi Pig very much comes to terms with the fact that his time has come. Listen below.
