Listen as Descendents announce their first album in 12 years

The influential punk band will release new record Hypercaffium Spazzinate on July 29th

Descendents have announced the release of their first studio album in 12 years, along with the first single from the record.

The influential punk band will release new record ‘Hypercaffium Spazzinate’ on July 29th, which is their first since 2004’s ‘Cool To Be You.’

The first single to be released from the new album comes in the form of ‘Victim of Me’, which can be heard in full below.

Describing the record, frontman Milo Aukerman said: “I think one of the things that’s kept us inspired over the years is having the music as an outlet for our frustrations.

“Having the freedom to completely blow my voice out every time I recorded was a very positive experience for me”.

Drummer Bill Stevenson added: “In a way, putting pen to paper and getting whatever you need to get out of you is the big accomplishment.”

The band will also take the new album on the road with a series of live dates across Europe, including a show at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens on the 4th August.

Descendents were formed in 1977, and are considered to be pioneers of the pop-punk genre, with the likes of Green Day, Blink 182 and NOFX all previously citing the band as being huge influences on their sound.
