It’s been a good year for Bouncing Souls fans. Alright, it’s been a really good year for Bouncing Souls fans.
After all, the New Jersey punk rockers spent the entire year releasing new song after new song as part of its 20th Anniversary Series — yep, they turned 20 this year! They also pressed the aforementioned songs onto a series of 7″ vinyl records which they sold everywhere they went on a year-long world tour. Now, the Souls are taking those 7″‘s and packing ’em together for their first studio album in four years, Ghosts on the Boardwalk.
Produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly), the 12-track effort will be available via Chunksaah Records on January 12th. Also available will be an enhanced CD, which features “The Bouncing Souls 20 Year Anniversary TV Special”. It will be available for purchase at the 3rd Annual Home For The Holidays shows in Asbury Park, NJ.
In fact, the real goodness comes during those series of shows. On December 27th, The Showroom will air Do You Remember? 15 Years of The Bouncing Souls and the band will be around for a Q&A afterward. Not to mention, there will be an early screening of “The Gold Tour” documentary Rough Cut on December 29th. Plus, there’ll be crazy after parties on December 26th and 29th at Asbury Lanes. Yes, bowling! Details and tickets for each event are available here; Merry Christmas, you crazy east coast punks!
