Atwater Punx - "Ghost Town"

Stacy Jones has one of the craziest musical careers of anyone I know of. He's the former/current drummer of Letters to Cleo, former drummer of Veruca Salt, singer/guitarist in American Hi-Fi, musical director for Miley Cyrus and The Chainsmokers, and the touring drummer for Matchbox Twenty. So obviously he needs another musical project: Atwater Punx. This new band sees him joining with his wife, Kristen Wagner Jones (Shut Up Stella). The couple started working on music together after the birth of their son, which they'd do during his nap time or after he went to bed. They've released a new song, "Ghost Town." "Ghost Town" has elements of bands like Rancid mixed with some of the dance punk of Le Tigre, but combined with the more pop side of things that Jones has been dabbling in lately. It's a really interesting mix, sounding nothing like any of his usual musical projects. It's also about watching Los Angeles shut down overnight due to quarantine. 

You can listen to "Ghost Town" below. The Flea Draws Blood, the debut EP from Atwater Punx, will be out May 28. For more on Atwater Punx, check them out on Instagram.
