Circle Jerks bassist and Repo Man star Zander Schloss has announced his first solo album, Song About Songs, which will be out in early 2022 via Blind Owl Records. While he's known for punk rock -- he's also played in The Weirdos and Thelonious Monster -- this album is decidedly folk, and about the power of music. “I’ve asked myself many times, who are you, Zander, and what do you want to do? These songs were written for my own therapy. I hope that this music would help people transcend their own sadness through the power of music and into a healing place. I have a huge amount of reverence for music and its healing powers. I obviously have songs that have saved my life."

“This is my polar opposite version of punk rock," Schloss adds. "Punk rock is volume and anger and speed. I wanted to do space and vulnerability and excruciating, almost subconscious emotions, things that I feel so deeply that I would never say them out loud.” You can watch the video for Song About Songs' title track below.

Meanwhile, Zander is on the road with Circle Jerks for their 40th anniversary tour. They played Riot Fest in September and the tour picks back up October 27 in Albuquerque and dates continue through much of 2022. All Circle Jerks dates are listed below.
