Perennial punk rockers, Pennywise, have released the title track to their upcoming 12th studio album, Never Gonna Die, which will be released on April 20th. This is the first album of new songs with singer Jim Lindberg, guitarist Fletcher Dragge, drummer Byron McMackin, and bassist Randy Bradbury in over a decade.
According to Lindberg, the track takes a look at:
the seemingly immortal practice of handing down our ancient biases, prejudice, and religious dogma from each generation to the next. The goal of the song is to try and get young people to finally say enough, and that the system isn’t working. It’s going to take a massive evolutionary shift in consciousness to change it, starting with the youth, because unless we do, we’ll just have more of the same carnage we’ve seen happening all over the world reincarnated with every new generation.
Hit up Pennywise.com to pre-order the album.
Produced by longtime Pennywise collaborator Cameron Webb (Motörhead, NOFX, Alkaline Trio), Never Gonna Die came to life in the same space where the band penned classic songs with late bassist Jason Thirsk. With their quintessential power to merge the subversive and the celebratory, Pennywise have built the album on fast-paced anthems expertly engineered to inspire radical change, personal empowerment, relentless hijinks, and reckless fast times.
