Amidst a ferocious tour schedule since their acclaimed 2012 release Freak Out!, TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET have somehow still found time to pen and record a few new songs.
Instead of resting on a day off during a recent tour with The Queers, the guys dropped into the Blasting Room (Rise Against, NOFX, Descendents) to record the American Deutsch Bag 7”.
The first track, “Ich bin Auslander” is a mid-tempo pop-punk gem that shows off some classic TBR harmonies, along with some questionable high school German that Ray (singer) has managed to retain.
The second song is a balls out, Descendents-esque jam about the band’s proclivity for, uh, well… smoking pot.
The b-side is rounded out by TBR’s pogo punk take on Tony Sly’s “Via Munich”, which will also be included on the highly anticipated Tony Sly tribute album The Songs of Tony Sly.
American Deutsch Bag has it all; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll get wanna get high.
