In a recent interview, Pennywise frontman Jim Lindberg revealed that he has been in the studio recording on an EP with his new band Wraths, which features Steve McCall from 1208, Chris Kranes from The Darlings and a drummer named Drew. Asked what people can expect to hear from the EP, Lindberg replied:
“Well, we just recorded it. [laughs] In fact, we have to talk about how it’s gonna look. In 2014, how you release music is extremely different than ten years ago and almost a year ago. These days, a lot of people just put it on Youtube [laughs], that’s all they have to do. If there’s any musicians out there, speaking of that, retaining the masters is a really good thing, you know? There was a time when you didn’t feel like you were legitimate unless you were on a record label, but these days, it’s very easy to get your music out there and you own the rights to it. That’s a really good thing for a musician when musicians have been shit upon for the last decade and a half with what’s going on in the digital world. That’s one of the good things when it comes to digital distribution of music. You can control all your rights and how you want to do things now instead of some Barney at the record label.”
No title or release date has been set for the EP, but we’ll keep you all posted as more details come to light.
