Dallas/Fort Worth grunge outfit Toadies will release their new album, PLAY.ROCK.MUSIC, on July 31st via Kirtland Records. Originally slated to be released as an EP on May 31st, the band changed their tune and expanded the effort after spending some quality time in the recording studio with producer Frenchie Smith (The Darkness, Meat Puppets, Built to Spill). The first single, “Summer of the Stage”, will be released digitally on May 8th.

In a press release, vocalist Vaden Todd Lewis says of the recording process:

The plan was just to record some demos with (producer) Frenchie Smith. It went so well we decided to compile the songs into an EP. But we were having such a good time, we decided to keep the ball rolling and make a full-length record. A lot of this material was written on the fly in the studio. It was a very exciting and scary process.”

Currently on tour with Social Distortion, Toadies announced that they will be adding more to-be-determined dates with Helmet afterward. The band has also revealed that their annual festival Dia de los Toadies will take place over Labor Day weekend in New Braunfels, TX. Check out their full docket below.
