Redd Kross will release Researching the Blues, their Merge debut and first album in fifteen years, on August 7. Stream the full album now at NPR Music.
NPR’s Stephen Thompson says of Researching the Blues,
Power-pop signposts abound throughout the album, from Cheap Trick to Teenage Fanclub — the latter could’ve fit “Dracula’s Daughter” onto Bandwagonesque and no one would have minded — but Researching the Blues never delves into nostalgia. Who has time, when you’re having this much fun blowing kids half your age out of the water?
Watch videos from throughout Redd Kross’ career at their newly launched YouTube page, and pre-order Researching the Blues on CD and LP now in the Merge store. Redd Kross have announced album release shows and will continue to add tour dates, so stay tuned to their Facebook and Twitter.
