Wyoming punks Teenage Bottlerocket will follow 2019's Stay Rad! with their ninth album, Sick Sesh!, on August 27 via Fat Wreck Chords (pre-order). The album was produced by past collaborator Andrew Berlin and mastered by Jason Livermore, and guitarist/vocalist Ray Carlisle says, "We spent a lot of time on guitar tones this time around — that was important for us. We made sure to bring the noisy, loud, irritate your fuckin’ mom guitar back. There’s a ton of intentional guitar noise and feedback. We dug up the amps we used for Freak Out! and They Came From The Shadows. This is punk rock, after all. Stay Rad! Is a great record, but it’s very radio-friendly. I wanted to do the opposite of that: Let’s get fuckin’ noisy."

The first single is the revved-up, very catchy "Ghost Story, and a video for that song is out now. "My awesome wife and I were sitting around one day, when she told me she worries about what would happen to her and the kids if I ever died," said bassist Miguel Chen, who penned the lyrics for this one. "I jokingly told her it’d be a ghost story because I’d definitely come back to haunt them."
