California punk vets Bracket are making their return to Fat Wreck Chords for the first time since 2002’s Live in a Dive with a new LP, Too Old to Die Young. It’s their ninth full-length and the follow-up to 2016’s The Last Page, which was a one-song, 70-minute album that sounded like Beach Boys’ Smile meets pop punk. Too Old to Die Young, on the other hand, the band says they made “with Fat Mike’s encouragement to stop overthinking our music and record a punk album again.” Here’s more of what they have to say about the album:

This album picks up where 1995’s 4 Wheel Vibe and our earliest songs for FAT left off, grabbing a few weird harmonies and world-weary lyrics along the way: eleven songs, recorded in living rooms and garages, each under 3 minutes. Angelo sings two songs, Zack sings one, and we wrote everything together. We recorded it with Fat Mike’s encouragement to stop overthinking our music and record a punk album again. The lyrics are about a band that despite never fitting in or really “making it,” never stopped trying.

Too Old to Die Young comes out on May 31. It’s available for preorder now, and we’re also premiering a full album stream a week ahead of the release – listen below.
