ICYMI, legendary punk band Descendents announced their ninth studio album, 9th & Walnut last month. The band revealed that the album includes a bunch of tracks recorded throughout the band’s career, some of them dating back to 1977. Today, the band have unveiled another song from the record called ‘Like the Way I Know’ and it’s a short, fast outburst of raw punk rock energy that just so happens to be one of the earliest Descendents songs recorded! Drummer Bill Stevenson shares:
“One of the very first Descendents songs, written in 1977, by (founding member) David Nolte, about how living in Hermosa Beach made him feel like a freak.”
Sounds like everything old is new again. From Metallica celebrating 30 years of The Black Album to Descendents releasing some of their older recordings, you should definitely make today the day to appreciate these OG legends reclaiming the spotlight.
