The Bombpops have announced their sophomore album, Death in Venice Beach, which was co-produced by Useless ID‘s Yotam Ben Horin, NOFX‘s Fat Mike, and The Gamits‘ Chris Fogal, and comes out March 13 via Fat Mike’s Fat Wreck Chords (pre-order). The first single is “Notre Dame,” and if you like catchy, punky, ’90s-style alt-rock, you’re gonna wanna hear this one. Check out its Chris Graue-directed video (which pays homage to David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive) below. Here’s what singer/guitarist Jen Razavi says about the new song:

I’ve always loved the idea of souls being here together in past lives and the notion that space and time have never really mattered. I saw Notre Dame in flames on the news and immediately sat down to write a song. It was the exact imagery I needed to convey a theme I had been exploring about knowing someone so deeply before ever meeting them. A centuries-old cathedral in flames became a perfect representation.

As mentioned, The Bombpops are also touring this year, including one leg with Tightwire and Billy Liar, and one with MakeWar and Pass Away, the latter of which hits NJ’s Asbury Park Brewery on 3/29 (tickets) and Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus on 4/4 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
