Back in Australia for the first time since February 2013, Descendents are touring in support of their cracking new album, ‘Hypercaffium Spazzinate‘.

Earlier this month they shared a new video for the song ‘Full Circle‘.

They have also released a limited number of 20th anniversary ‘Everything Sucks‘ skate decks locally via Artist First. Made in Australia, these are limited to 150 and can be purchased [Here].

Formed in 1978 against the fertile musical backdrop of Los Angeles’ South Bay scene (Black Flag, Minutemen etc), the caffeine-addled crew were less interested in social movements than bowel movements, with Rolling Stone declaring, “Descendents are the most playful group to emerge from the SoCal hardcore scene“.

Fast forward to 2016, and lo and behold, Descendents are back in the saddle with the release of their first full length in 12 years, ‘Hypercaffium Spazzinate‘ – a nod to their well-documented coffee obsession. Sure, the guys are now writing as adults – in the loosest sense of the term, but there’s a renewed sense of punk rock energy here. It’s faster, more reckless, and more intense.

No one’s accusing Descendents of maturity. For the better part of the band’s four-decade career, they’ve been the gold standard for puerility in pop-punk. But what do you expect from a band that pledged “Thou shalt not commit adulthood“?

Punk, pop, buzzing, summery, heartfelt, defiant, adolescent and wise all at once – the Descendents sound never gets old. Don’t miss your chance to witness live performances of classic tracks, ‘I’m the One‘, ‘I Don’t Wanna Grow Up‘, ‘Everything Sucks‘ and ‘Silly Girl‘.

‘Hypercaffium Spazzinate’ is out now on Epitaph. You can purchase the album, along with an assortment of merchandise [Here]. Or order digitally on iTunes [Here].
