Legendary New Jersey punks, The Bouncing Souls, are gearing up for the release of their tenth full length, ‘Simplicity’, due out July 29th via Rise Records.

In anticipation, the band have shared the album’s first single, the triumphantly infectious ‘Up To Us’. To make ‘Simplicity’, The Bouncing Souls reunited with producer John Seymour (How I Spent My Summer Vacation, Anchors Aweigh) to capture the raw spirit of their earlier work. ‘Up To Us’ maintains all the elements that longtime fans could desire from The Bouncing Souls, and injects them with the songwriting prowess earned through over 20 years of creating anthemic punk rock. The hook-filled track features powerfully lean instrumentation driving a massive chorus that begs to be shouted along to at a show. The Bouncing Souls will be hitting the road soon with upcoming European and UK tour dates, as well as several US shows. These include the band’s own Stoked For The Summer shows in Asbury Park, NJ.
