Having released their last batch of new music all the back in 2000, we are thrilled to say The Rock*A*Teens are back! Today the band have released their new single “Go Tell Everybody”, which will be featured on Sixth House (slated for release June 29 via Merge).
“In the past we hid behind walls of reverb, noise, production tricks,” frontman Chris Lopez says in regards to Sixth House. Coming into the recording process with home recordings and demos, Rock*A*Teens met up with Tim Delaney at Electron Gardens Studio and Rafael Pereira at Tribo Studios. Sixth House will feature more refined approach to recording while preserving their distinctly unvarnished lyrical and musical perspective.
Sixth House comes off the heels of Rock*A*Teens 2014 at the Merge 25 festival and the 2-LP reissue of their last album Sweet Bird of Youth. After their return from touring, the band quickly went to work on new tunes.
Pre-order Sixth House is now available in the Merge store on CD and limited-edition translucent green Peak Vinyl (which also includes a beautiful 24” × 24” poster featuring photography from Chris Verene). The album can also be pre-ordered from your favorite local record store and preferred digital music service.
