At this point, you know what you're going to get with Screeching Weasel. The pop punk/skate punk legends have their fourteenth album coming out, and have released the first single from it, "Any Minute Now." Does the song have that early pop punk sound where it's poppy but still rough? Yes. Is it still a little bratty? Of course. But what's unexpected is just how great this is. While most bands of this genre either overstay their teenage snottiness or slowly drift into a more mellow and mediocre sound, Ben Weasel has been able to sound older and more mature without losing what makes Screeching Wesel so beloved. "Any Minute Now" is exactly what Screeching Weasel should sound like thirty six years into their career.
You can listen to "Any Minute Now" below. The Awful Disclosures of Screeching Weasel is due out July 15, and will be available on vinyl via Striped Records, CD via Rum Bar Records, and digitally on Monona Music. You can start here for the digital version on Bandcamp. For more on Screeching Weasel, check out the band's website.
