Sitting On Stacy Launches Their New Chapter with "Baby Girl"
Today, California’s Sitting On Stacy resurface with their new track “Baby Girl,” the first release from their upcoming third album. Penned with Fat Mike of NOFX, the amped-up single shows the band’s growth as they’ve matured alongside each other in their post-college years. An outlet for pent-up anger that’s been festering under the surface, “Baby Girl” sees Sitting On Stacy unleash a new side of their artistry – Stream.
The band’s frontman Hoyt Yeatman shared that he had just gotten a new guitar and was strumming it non-stop in his kitchen, when the song popped into his head, and it was written within the hour. The next day, the rest of the band came over to record the song and they tracked the song live and did three takes, but they ended up using the first one to preserve the raw, visceral energy. Later, they showed the song to Fat Mike from NOFX and he loved it, added some chords and an edgy melody, and stamped it with his punk seal of approval.
Yeatman said, “This song isn't holding back—it's a full-throttle breakup anthem. It's about not being able to let out your anger, feeling like you've been used and betrayed, and dealing with extreme paranoia.”
Blending elements of rock, indie, ska and punk, Sitting On Stacy are musician’s musicians. Through their original music and covers they share to social media, they’ve caught the attention of everyone from The Beach Boys to John Stamos, Joe Jonas and Mark McGrath. Something about their use of nostalgia in a modern format seems to bring everyone into the community of their fervent fanbase.

The album will show the collaborative influence of Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan, Rome Ramirez of Sublime with Rome, Fat Mike of NOFX, MisterWives, Smallpools, and more. Spanning countless genres and specialties, the creative input on Sitting On Stacy’s upcoming music has helped them to come into a sound that is distinctly their own.
