Long-running Cali punks Swingin’ Utters will release their first album in four years, Peace and Love, on August 31 via Fat Wreck Chords (pre-order), and after revealing lead single “Human Potential,” we’re now premiering another song from the album, “Undertaker, Undertake.” This one’s the opening track on the album, and it kicks things off with a bang. “Human Potential” had sort of a ’70s-style, punk n’ roll vibe, but “Undertaker, Undertake” is faster, darker, more aggressive, and closer to early ’80s hardcore. It’s a real ripper, and it proves that Swingin’ Utters still sound fresh and urgent after all these years. Listen below.

Swingin’ Utters have added more dates since we last spoke, and a handful of the West Coast shows are with punk legend Kevin Seconds (of the now-defunct 7Seconds). Other dates are with The Last Gang and there’s one show (in San Jose) with Good Riddance. All dates are listed below.
