Bigwig is a hardcore punk band from New Jersey, formed in 1995. They were originally composed of Josh Farrell, John Castaldo, Tom Petta, and Dan Rominski. It is said they got their name from a character in the book "Watership Down", a large, tough rabbit. Since their inception, they have been steadily gaining popularity, having played / toured with such bands as Pennywise, Less Than Jake, Blink-182, The Ataris, The Vandals, New Found Glory, No Use for a Name, NOFX, The Suicide Machines, Agnostic Front, Lagwagon, and Reel Big Fish. Following the release of their 2001 album Invitation To Tragedy, injuries and lineup changes caused the band to take a five-year hiatus. Both Josh Farrell and Tom Petta have received producers credits on several well known albums. Tom Petta has most recently produced the new record entitled "For Heaven's Sake" by Canadian punk rock band Only Way Back. Their latest album, Reclamation, was released on February 7, 2006 by Fearless Records.
