2009 has been an important and busy year for New Jersey natives, The Bouncing Souls. They’ve celebrated 20 years of vibrant, heartfelt punk rock, with plenty of special treats for fans old and new.
It was almost 16 years ago that The Bouncing Souls put out their first album on their very own Chunksaah Records, and in a true return to the DIY spirit in which they began, The Bouncing Souls have self-released a new 7” every third month of 2009 on Chunksaah, now handing us their fourth and final of the year.
The Bouncing Souls’ latest 7-inch release was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly, Street Dogs) with cover artwork collaboration between Bouncing Souls bassist, Bryan Kienlen, and Arturo Vega, artistic director for The Ramones. Pressing Info: Mailorder: 800 pcs – black and white vinyl / Tour: 1000 pcs – black and red splatter / Retail: 1000 pcs – white vinyl.
