Every now and then a band comes along and speaks to the hearts of kids everywhere, as the
true voice of their community. Teenage Bottlerocket is that band in the punk rock community
right now. The band’s anthemic punk rock classics quickly catapulted them to the top of the
scene, and before long the bands who inspired them had become their peers. In an age when
overnight internet sensations are an everyday occurrence, it’s hard to find a band that’s grown
organically, the old fashioned way; by word of mouth and non-stop touring, while winning kids
over one show at a time. Since 2001, Teenage Bottlerocket have been busy touring the world
over with the likes of NOFX, Dropkick Murphys, Pennywise, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones,
as well as a stint on the Vans Warped Tour.
“Tales from Wyoming” is the band’s 6th full-length album, and for this effort the band enlisted
Descendents drummer and punk rock legend, Bill Stevenson (Rise Against, NOFX, Black
Flag, Descendents) to produce. The result is easily the band’s strongest material to date. “Tales
From Wyoming” is 14 fast, melodic, and catchy songs that will stay stuck in your head for
months to come.
To support the release, Teenage Bottlerocket will be on tour with Pennywise, and will continue
to tour relentlessly throughout the release. Teenage Bottlerocket has found a way to both
progress, while also staying true to the sound that made them so exciting in the first place.
