Gymshorts releasing ‘Knock Knock’ (stream it), touring w/ Death Valley Girls


Providence, RI band Gymshorts make stoner punk that’s equal parts loud, snotty and catchy. The band’s new album, Knock Knock, will be out August 28 via Wallflower/Burger Records (Bachelor Records in the EU) and is loaded with rippers about partying all night, hitting rock bottom, snitching, copycats and more. The album was made in the Berkshires, away from the trappings of 2018. “I told everyone there wasn’t any wifi so we would all just have to hang out with each other and play games and make dinner together,” singer/guitarist Sarah Greenwell says. “Usually I get really antsy while recording and pretty impatient but being in the woods was so awesome and there was nothing to distract me.” We’re premiering a stream of the whole record — listen below.

You may have seen Gymshorts on tour recently with Tacocat (or La Luz earlier this year), and they’ll soon be on the road with Death Valley Girls, including a show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge on November 1 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
