As for people like Ben Weasel, Dan Vapid, or even John Jughead, I have nothing to say, because they never really existed, they were just made up names for a bunch of friends that tried to do something different in order to survive and make a living in this world.
And I imagine they are all still trying to make a living somehow, seeing that their band's prominent "leader" never wanted to tour in order to make it financially viable to continue on.
Weasel later revealed the split with Jughead was the result of two-year-long legal battle over Screeching Weasel's business affairs and, although they were resolved, Weasel said "it was not an amicable split" and that "things had gone way, way past the point of no return in terms of our friendship and any semblance of a working relationship anymore". On November 30, , Ben Weasel appeared on Last Call with Carson Daly to talk about his personal problems with anxiety disorders and agoraphobia.
It was announced that the label will also be releasing the back catalogs of Screeching Weasel, the Riverdales, and Ben Weasel. On March 18, , during Screeching Weasel's South by Southwest Festival performance at the Scoot Inn in Austin, Texas, Foster punched the face of a female audience member who had thrown a beer and ice cubes at him, and also spit in his face. As a result a woman on the stage, believed to be the club's owner, grabbed him from behind, and Ben mistaking her for an attacking fan turned around and punched her twice in the scuffle.
Foster was then restrained by security and left the venue. The sentiments and actions expressed were completely out of our control and in no way represent the band members' view points or moral compasses. As a result, the band has discussed at length and has come to the conclusion that as a group we will not likely be able to muster the dignity to attempt a live performance as 'Screeching Weasel' in the foreseeable future.
On March 31, Weasel announced the cancellation of "Weasel Fest", a 3-day event in honor of Screeching Weasel's 25th anniversary that had been scheduled to take place at Reggie's Rock Club in Chicago, after many of the other acts on the bill dropped out in the wake of the SXSW incident.
On July 13, , Weasel released a video on YouTube stating that new albums were in the works, through a two-part rock opera called Baby Fat. At the end of , Zac Damon was replaced by guitarist, Trevor Jackson. A documentary on the band was in the works for several years, but was cancelled in , with producers citing Weasel's lack of cooperation with production. They recorded and digitally released two singles on December 11, , entitled "Christmas Eve" and "New Years Eve" and played several shows in They subsequently announced via their website that a new album was scheduled to be recorded in summer with a tour in to follow.
The band remains active though tour plans have been postponed due to the worldwide Coronavirus outbreak. Ben Weasel has stated, "Screeching Weasel is never breaking up again. The band dies when I do. Many subsequent punk and pop punk bands who have experienced mainstream success cite Screeching Weasel as an influence.
Blink covered the band's song "The Girl Next Door" on their album Buddha , with Blink guitarist Tom Delonge citing them as one of the biggest influences on his songwriting.
