Published May 06, 2015Corrosion of Conformity member Reed Mullin's Teenage Time Killers have been hanging onto punk-and-metal minded material for a while now, but the project finally issues its long-gestating Greatest Hits Vol. 1 this summer. Before it arrives in full, though, you can hear the supergroup bash through a Misfits-styled preview called "Barrio."
As you'll hear down below, the song surges with sugar-dripping pop-punk melodies, but its verse subverts itself with the occasional creep chord change. Alkaline Trio leader Matt Skiba apparently twisted his hair into a greasy devilock before he hopped on the mic, as his yowly lines come across like early days Danzig.
Bad Religion's Brian Baker also appears on the ghoulish fist-pumper. Fun fact: Baker had been tapped to play in Danzig's post-Misfits project Samhain, but bailed before the band began playing shows.
As previously reported, Greatest Hits Vol. 1 also features performances from Dave Grohl, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, Dead Kennedy's Jello Biafra, Sunn O)))'s Greg Anderson and more. It hits stores July 31 through Rise Records.
