Produced by Mike O'Neill (The Inbreds), Shit Sucks is BA Johnston's tenth studio album and treads familiar territory for Hamilton's Sweatiest Entertainer. Spirited numbers about sitting on the couch and stealing booze from your mom's liquor cabinet mix with self-effacing tracks about solo pizza parties and the obliteration of Toronto. Quintessential BA. Shit Sucks also features appearances from Stephen Kelly (The Just Barelys) and Laura Peek, both of whom performed on BA's seminal album, My Heart Is A Blinking Nintendo.

A veteran of the Canadian tour circuit, BA continues to travel the country in his mother's beloved Toyota Previa minivan. Some say if you utter his name three times in front of a mirror, he will show up at your house, force you to give him nominal cover charge, then "entertain" you for 25 minutes.
