PENNYWISE

Posted: April 2, 2012 in Music, Uncategorized

I won’t waste a lot of words saying how influential Pennywise has been to me throughout the years.  There is something I can’t completely put my finger on related to some of these punk bands that I grew up with still getting out there, making music and retaining their message through the grey hairs.  Maybe this is me feeling lame sitting at a desk all day, but Pennywise’s music has been a big part of my life the last 20 years, so might as well continue to ride this wave.

Pennywise and Jim Lindbergh parted ways a while back and, sadly for most fans, I thought there were likely done, despite picking up Zoli Teglas for some tours.  As I previously wrote about, Zoli is talented and puts on a great show, but for a lot of folks, he is not Jim and thus not Pennywise. 

A few weeks ago the first track from the upcoming album All or Nothing was released through KROQ and I was stoked to hear the sound.

Today the first single from All or Nothing was released on KROQ’s website and not only do I like it, but it is a somewhat new sound that is exciting.  Bands like NOFX and Pennywise continue to rock and, likely unknowingly, provide some hope for all of us old folks.
