This sounds like an awesome idea and band! Milo Aukerman’s new side project is a punk rock supergroup called The PhDs. The band consist of punk rock musicians who have PhDs or Master’s Degree with Greg Graffin of Bad Religion, Dexter Holland and James Lilja of The Offspring, Dick Lucas of Subhumans and of course Milo Aukerman of the Descendents.
Their first album will be an EP and simple be called Brainiac, after the Superman villain of course. It will be released on Epitaph Records. Expect a lot more tour dates and more info soon!
