EDITORS’ NOTES

The Laramie, Wyo.–based punks Teenage Bottlerocket execute an extremely pleasurable version of pop-punk, with hooks that hook and vocals that never turn precious. Neither lead singer Kody Templeman nor secondary vocalist Ray Carlisle get coy or cute when delivering their news. Anyone who’s ever loved The Descendents (whose drummer Bill Stevenson produced the album), The Ramones, Screeching Weasel, or The Blisters should be impressed with the band’s sixth full-length album. “Nothing Else Matters (When I’m with You)” makes the obligatory Metallica reference. “Can’t Quit You” notes that a particular woman is more addictive than crystal meth.

About Teenage Bottlerocket

Teenage Bottlerocket are a punk rock band who play in the tight, fast, funny, and frantic SoCal manner, even though they hail from Laramie, Wyoming rather than the Golden State. Teenage Bottlerocket were formed in 2000 by bassist and lead singer Ray Carlisle and drummer Brandon Carlisle, shortly after the breakup of their previous band, the Homeless Wonders. Adding guitarist Zach Doe, the band played out in 2001, and released its debut EP, A-Bomb, in 2002. Doe left Teenage Bottlerocket later that year, and they added a new guitarist, Joel Pattinson, who played on the band's first full-length album, 2003's Another Way. For 2005's Total, the group expanded to a four-piece with the addition of guitarist Kody Templeman, previously of the Lillingtons, whose sound had been an influence on the Carlisle brothers early on.

Arriving in 2008, Warning Device saw the band go through more personnel changes; Joel Pattinson left the lineup, Ray Carlisle moved from bass to guitar, and Miguel Chen took over on the four-string. Released in 2009, They Came from the Shadows was Teenage Bottlerocket's first album for well-established West Coast punk label Fat Wreck Chords; Fat also released 2012's Freak Out! The band moved to Rise Records for 2015's Tales from Wyoming; it proved to be Brandon Carlisle's last album with Teenage Bottlerocket, following his unexpected death on November 7, 2015 after falling into a coma. The group opted to continue on following Brandon's passing, hiring new drummer Darren Chewka and returning to the Fat Wreck Chords fold to release 2017's Stealing the Covers (a collection of tunes written by other bands) as well as the accompanying single "Going Back to Wyo." ~ Mark Deming
