Pennywise Announces New Album ‘Yesterdays,’ Unveils Single and Touring Plans
Things are about to pick up for Pennywise. The veteran SoCal punk legends will return this summer with their eleventh studio album, 'Yesterdays.' The disc, due July 15 via Epitaph Records, features the return of the band's longtime frontman Jim Lindberg.
Lindberg left the band in 2009, and the band released one album, 'All or Nothing,' with Zoli Teglas in 2012. The disc will also be special in that in includes songs written by the band's late bassist Jason Thirsk, who died in 1996.
"We always wanted to go back and record these songs because later in our career we started to get more political and angry— that may have turned some people off but that's what we were feeling at the time," Lindberg explains. "In the back of our minds we knew we had these cool, old songs that were more life-affirming, it just took us 25 years to get back to it."
The vocalist also says that fans can look for the unabashed rock on which they made their name, adding, “We tracked the whole thing in a few days doing a couple of takes of each song so it's a really raw album in that sense."
You can get your first listen to new music from the band as the group has just unveiled the song, 'Violence Never Ending.' You can listen to it in the player provided above. If you like what you hear, Pennywise's 'Yesterdays' studio album is available for pre-order at this location.
Pennywise will play a pair of album release shows in their native California, rocking Santa Ana's Observatory July 16 and Los Angeles' House of Blues on July 18. After that, you can find them supporting The Offspring as part of their summer run. The trek also features Bad Religion, with Stiff Little Fingers and The Vandals playing select dates.
