Veruca Salt

We've already posted a few songs from Ghost Notes, the first Veruca Salt album with their original lineup in almost two decades, and here's another. "Empty Bottle" is exactly the kind of instantly satisfying, fist-clenching rock that Veruca Salt were so good at in the '90s. And with Speedy Ortiz, Colleen Green, Bully and other bands making quality stuff like this in 2015, it's entirely of the moment and gives that whole crop of younger bands a run for their money. Rock out below.

Veruca Salt's tour hits NYC on July 31 at Webster Hall with Charly Bliss. You can still get tickets.
