Bouncing Souls Embrace 'Simplicity' on New Album

BY Gregory AdamsPublished May 2, 2016

It's been four years since the Bouncing Souls launched their last full-length release, Comet, but the springy New Jersey punk vets have announced that another longplayer is on the way. Titled Simplicity, the record arrives July 29 through Rise Records.

News of the LP was delivered today (May 2) through the group's Facebook page. The record marks the first album from the band since the departure of longtime drummer Michael McDermott in 2013, with Hot Water Music's George Rebelo now sitting behind the kit.

While details on the tracklisting have yet to be coughed up by the band, the recording sessions took place this past February in Asbury Park, NJ with producer John Seymour. The Bouncing Souls previously worked with the producer on 2001's How I Spent My Summer Vacation and 2003's Anchors Aweigh.

"We set out to recapture the spirit of our earlier songs, not over-thought or over-produced," the band wrote on Facebook. "In the studio our goal was to keep it raw and real, the feeling of a band playing live."

Though song previews have yet to be revealed, you'll find the album art for Simplicity up above.
