Redd Kross @ Santos 4/6/2013

"It felt a little bit like, who knows if anybody is going to care about a new Redd Kross record. We had no idea," says Steve McDonald. "We were just doing it because we thought it was great and we had to get it out of our systems."

They needn't have worried. The album is indeed great. Direct and timeless, with a healthy dose of Beatlesque harmonies, it's everything Redd Kross does best.

And now the band is about to embark on its first full tour in 15 years. They're back in the van and back in the clubs. On Sunday, they come to Kung Fu Necktie, which should be a great place to witness Redd Kross' jangly, punchy rock-and-roll.

"We kind of have no idea how it's going to go," Steve McDonald says. "We're going to take a swan dive into it. It really is back to the station wagon for us, which was how we first came to Philadelphia in 1985." - []

Veteran LA powerpop band Redd Kross stopped in NYC this past weekend on their current North American tour, playing Santos on Saturday (4/6) with Habibi. More pictures from Santos, plus video of Redd Kross performing their classic "Peach Kelli Pop," below...
