Out Friday, July 14, the album is a followup to the band’s explosive 2016 double-hitter “Gwani” / “Time.” Jorge Explosion manned the control board again, capturing new, original material and a handful of well-chosen obscurities recorded by American Teenbeat combos. The album’s unifying theme mirrors that of the vast majority of tunes featured on the Pebbles and Teenage Shutdown compilation series: loneliness—the feeling of being an outcast, finding it difficult to fit in. Songs range in style from moody ballads to beat-pounding, punk-tinged rants influenced by well-known ’60s Garage groups like The Dovers, Billy & The Kids, The Nightcrawlers, and Thursday’s Children–all delivered, of course, with BOBKAT’65’s unique Kiddie Teenbeat Garage Rock vibe.
This Lonely Road is available on Opaque Yellow color vinyl (limited to 300), classic black vinyl (limited to 200), CD, and digital. All LPs are housed within a heavyweight Stoughton jacket and include a coupon with full album download.
