Heading back to the Blasting Room to do a new Record for Fat!

Friends! As 2011 comes to a close we’d like to thank everyone for an amazing year! Thanks to all of the wonderful bands we played with, all of the venues who had us, all the crew, and most of all to everyone who came out and supported our band. This has been the best year in Bottlerocket history, and we’re anxiously looking forward to the new year! We are especially excited for 2012 because we are heading back to the Blasting Room to record a new full length in February. So far we know that we’ll be working with longtime TBR engineer Andrew Berlin, and that Fat Wreck will be releasing it. Stoked! We have written some of our favorite songs to date, and we can’t wait to show them to everyone! The record will come out later in 2012, and we will keep everyone posted as we have more details!

Bonus news for Rock Band players, you can now purchase our song Bigger Than Kiss on the Rock Band Marketplace here! Do people still play Rock Band? Anyhoot…

Thanks! TBR

Wyoming Tour!

Friends! We’ve decided to tour our home state of Wyoming, and here’s why:
Being from Wyoming is something we’ve always been proud of. Teenage Bottlerocket has made several friends around the state in the past ten years and we wanted to show our appreciation. Tobias Jeg at Redscare industries suggested that we do a Wyoming tour, and we all thought it was an awesome idea. We are playing some towns on this tour we’ve never played, and some towns we haven’t played for 7 or so years. Last time we played Rock Springs some metal head beat up a trash can in front of the venue. That’s the Wyoming we’re after. Some bands do tours that ignore Wyoming all together, we are playing 7 shows here. Perhaps other touring bands will take notice and add a show or two in Wyoming on upcoming tours. Our friends from Laramie Redbush will be main support for the entire tour. Denver, Colorado’s The Gamits will be playing the Laramie show.

Check those and all upcoming dates out at our tour dates section!

New Video! Reading and Leeds!

Friends! We’ve returned from Europe and we want to say we had an amazing time! Thanks to everyone who made it possible and to everyone who came out! We would also like to present a new music video for an old song here. The video is for “She’s Not the One” off our 2008 release “Warning Device” on Redscare Records. The video was directed by our friend Mike Kircos and we really think he did an amazing job, so check it out at http://vimeo.com/22341522 We had a great time in Europe and our first 2 shows in the UK ever were awesome, so awesome in fact that we’re coming back in August to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals! Details for Reading can be found at http://www.readingfestival.com/2011/lineup/ and Leeds information is available at http://www.leedsfestival.com/2011/lineup/ Stoked!

Mutilate Me 7″

Hey everyone!! We’re excited to announce we have a new 7″ coming out in April on Fat Wreck Chords!! We’ve titled the 3 song 7″ Mutilate Meand it comes out on April 12th 2011, just in time for the NOFX/Teenage Bottlerocket/Old Man Markley European tour!! Check out the cover art and tracklisting at http://www.fatwreck.com/record/detail/248 Here’s what Ray had to say about the 7″:

We named the 3 song 7″ after the title track “Mutilate Me.” It’s a song about preferring things a little rough in the bedroom. The second song “Punk House of Horror” is a warning about a house you wouldn’t want to visit or sleepover. While being on the road we’ve been unfortunate enough to end up at the Punk House of Horror a few times. It smelled. We recorded the final track for the Bad Religion tribute comp, but we ended up not making the cut. The tune is “Henchman” from No Control. We are heading over to Europe in April with NOFX and Old Man Markley. We are playing with Screeching Weasel on May 27th at Reggie’s in Chicago. We can’t wait to play, and hang out with everybody!
