The record is officially released on October 14
The eight-track punk rock album will be available as a standalone digital release and as part of a limited edition reissue of their 2013 LP ‘Save Rock and Roll’, from October 14.
The record was recorded at Adams’ Pax Am studio in Hollywood over the course of two days in July. Speaking to Noisey, guitarist Joe Trohman said of the mini-album: People would have expected a bunch of remixes after the album. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but this is not what people expected us to do, and that’s exciting and fun, to flip people on their head, so to speak. Also, one aspect of this that is a continuation of ‘Save Rock And Roll’ was that it was an exercise in not doing as many layers of things. This is even a further distillation of that. It’s like a Black Flag record where it’s like, there’s very few tracks and everything that’s there is what’s there.”
