RED KROSS NEW ALBUM AFTER 15 YEARS OF SILENCE

Red Kross announced they’re going to release a new album via Merge Records on August 7, 2012. After 15 years of nothing from the 34-year-old veteran LA Punk band, we couldn’t be more hyped. They’re still holding true to that vintage sound that’s so hard to find. Take a listen for yourself. We’ll have more Red Kross soon.

OFFICIAL RED KROSS STATEMENT

Welcome to the glorious sound of “Researching The Blues,” the title-track and opener to the first Redd Kross album in 15 Years. Redd Kross is back and delivering their signature brand of genuine rock ‘n’ roll with a vengeance. The title song is dedicated to sad sacks and lottery winners. It’s all about vintage Detroit guitars, ripping off uptight paranoid sonic incantations trapped within the Plastic Ono. Guaranteed to melt your hollow face. Or … A critical study of an ugly race.

Founded 34 years ago in Los Angeles during the first wave of LA punk rock by brothers Jeff and Steven McDonald (then respectively 15 and 11 years old), Redd Kross cut their teeth opening for Black Flag at a middle school graduation party. Their debut recordings caught the attention of Rodney Bingenheimer, who quickly became a fan as he spun their Ramones-inspired songs like “Annette’s Got The Hits” and “I Hate My School” on the world-famous KROQ.

In 2006, Jeff and Steven announced their reunion with the “classic Neurotica” line-up, joined once again by guitarist Robert Hecker (IT’S OK) and drummer Roy McDonald (The Muffs). Redd Kross have been playing to enthusiastic audiences at sold-out select shows and festivals such as the Azkena Festival; Coachella; The HooDoo Gurus’ Invitational, “Dig It Up”; All Tomorrow’s Parties; and Pop Montréal. More Redd Kross tour dates to come this year!
