Thick

Brooklyn pop-punk trio THICK share their second single, “Tell Myself” inviting listeners to time travel as the band tenderly imparts wisdom to their younger selves.

The track follows the announcement of their forthcoming new album, Happy Now and lead-single “Loser”. Working again with producer Joel Hamilton (Iggy Pop, Juiceboxxx) and recorded at Studio G Brooklyn, the LP is set to release August 19th, 2022 via Epitaph Records.

THICK will also be touring the album this fall on a run of national headline dates.

About the track, THICK share: “As you get older, you sometimes look at your little-kid self and wish you could give them a hug and tell them everything’s going to be okay.  It’s not about minimizing life experiences, but a reminder that you’re stronger than you think and that—despite what it feels like in the moment—there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

The Interrupters

Today, Los Angeles band, The Interrupters, have released their bouncy new song “As We Live” featuring legendary artists Tim Armstrong of Rancid/Operation Ivy and Rhoda Dakar of The Bodysnatchers. “As We Live” marks the group’s fourth single pulled from their eagerly-awaited full-length In The Wild, set to drop on August 5 via Hellcat/Epitaph Records.

“Love is the fuel for everything beautiful in the world,” Aimee Interrupter shares. “Love should be approached with urgency and that’s what we are trying to capture with this song. It is truly humbling to have musical legends, Tim Armstrong and Rhoda Dakar co-writing and singing this one with us.”

Beloved Los Angeles punk band The Linda Lindas release a video for “Why,” a standout from their critically acclaimed debut album Growing Up, out now via Epitaph Records. The video, directed by Elizabeth Ito and Suzie Vlček, features Kathleen Hanna as the voice of the interviewer and story and character design by the band’s Eloise Wong.”

“The ‘Why’ music video is a tribute to The Decline of Western Civilization, the legendary 1981 documentary about L.A. punk by Penelope Spheeris, and Spirited Away, one of our favorite Miyazaki movies. it is set an an imaginary Save Music in Chinatown show, part of the series of all-ages matinee fund raisers for music education at Eloise’s school, where we played some of our earliest gigs with some of the musicians from Decline––Alice Bag, Phranc, Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski––who are now our friends. The art was drawn by Eloise, the flyers are real, and no dessert was wasted!”

Los Angeles-based, all-female punk band The Linda Lindas have announced their forthcoming album Growing Up. The highly anticipated release is due out digitally on April 8 and on physical formats June 3 via Epitaph Records. Today, the band shares the title track “Growing Up,” written by vocalist/guitarist Lucia. Alongside the track, they release the music video directed by Humberto Leon, co-founder of fashion brand Opening Ceremony and owner of Los Angeles restaurant CHIFA. The video, completely shot on iPhone 13 Pro Max, features custom clothing from Rodarte & Batsheva, and eyewear from Warby Parker.

 

Humberto Leon on directing “Growing Up”:

“Directing my first video for The Linda Lindas was a dream come true because I love the message and voice the girls have, and I am a true fan. I was really inspired by the girl’s love of cats and wanted to take that to the next level and so the video is a conversation about turning points in their lives all being viewed through the gaze of their cats. It creates a narrative of whether the cats want to trade places with the girls or vice-a-versa.This video was extra special because I worked with the girls on designing the outfits with Batsheva, styling the looks with Rodarte and Warby Parker. The entire video was a collaboration between me and the girls. By shooting the video on iPhone 13 Pro Max, it created an intimacy with the video that felt like we were listening in on a day in the life of The Linda Lindas.”

Tomorrow night, The Linda Linda’s will perform on The Late Show With James Corden.

Los Angeles-based, all-female punk band The Linda Lindas have released their highly anticipated new single “Oh!” “’Oh!’ is one of the first songs we collaborated on during the pandemic, masked and distanced on the front porch,” recalls the band. “It started with the main riff and progression Bela brought to the band. Eloise wrote the verses and Lucia and Mila wrote the choruses. The song deals with trying to help out someone and having it blow up in your face.”
