On May 11th, 2010, Boston’s The Kings Of Nuthin’ will be releasing their new album Old Habits Die Hard on Sailor’s Grave Records. The album’s cover art can be found here and the band has made two tracks from the album available for streaming. Check out the track Black And Blue here, and Old Habits Die Hard here.
I hadn’t heard of these dudes until today but I’m stoked this press release landed in my inbox. They’ve definitely got a hard sound to describe; sorta like oldies swing music meets punk rock… Or a grittier, more punk rock version of World Inferno Friendship Society…. It’s best to just listen to the tracks or read this snippet from the press release:
Old Habits Die Hard is the band’s first all-original full length since 2002’s Fight Songs. Recorded at The Outpost (Dropkick Murphys, The Unseen, Blood For Blood, etc), Old Habits Die Hard is classic KON — a mystifying mixture of Joey Ramone huffing paint and Little Richard sniffing glue. Laced with pounding cadences of wild R&B and the punk rock that inspired it, all woven into one potent tapestry of rock n roll chaos.
