Teenage Bottlerocket detail upcoming 7-inch “American Deutsch Bag”

Teenage Bottlerocket have announced they will be releasing a new 7-inch entitled “American Deutsch Bag” on November 26th through Fat Wreck Chords! The cover art can be seen above and the tracklisting can be found below. Here’s what guitarist Ray Carlisle had to say about the 7-inch:

On Teenage Bottlerocket’s last tour in Europe we made friends with a dude in a Lethal Weapon 2 hat. We referred to him as a Deutsch bag. He was a good sport and found the insult endearing. I’ve always loved Germany. I took German in high school and we sang alot of songs. One of the songs was entitled “Ich bin Auslander und Spreche Nicht Gut Deutsch”. This is roughly translated “I’m not from here and my German sucks”. We decided to make it a pop punk song. If I screw up any of the pronunciation it’s because my German sucks, it’s a pretty good excuse to fuck up the words. We also included a new song about smoking reefer and a song by our dear friend Tony Sly called “Via Munich”. We recorded the 7″ at the Blasting Room with Andrew Berlin. Everything seemed to fall into place. The title is my favorite part of it all; ladies and gentleman, I present to you, the AMERICAN DEUTSCH BAG 7″ BY TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET! The 7″ will be available on our upcoming European tour with VOLBEAT and ICED EARTH. Guten tag.

We’ll keep you posted as more details surrounding this 7-inch surface. Teenage Bottlerocket’s latest album “Freak Out!” was released last July on Fat Wreck Chords. They have since put out an 8xLP full-discography box set through Clearview Records. Details on that European tour Ray mentioned can be found here.
