Devon Kay and The Solutions (pop-punk) premiere new video-track, “Old Scent”

Chicago-based pop-punkers led by Devon Kay of Direct Hit, Devon Kay and The Solutions have announced a new album after six long years of dormancy. (Some might call that stability.)

Yes, I Can’t is being released on Vincent Fiorello’s (Less Than Jake) label Paper + Plastick, digitally on February 1st, and the album drops on vinyl April 26th. Pre-orders are sure to go up for grabs soon at the labels website.

A lot has changed with the band that “was born, now is here, and sometimes gets boners” since their last release in 2013. Their bassist left to pursue an actual productive life while Devon toured with Direct Hit! doing the exact opposite, composing songs in his spare time (which was a lot) with The Solutions drummer and long-time friend Ryan Solava over the internet. They threw in a horn section and YesI Can’t was borne, 12 pop-style tracks blending ska, folk, and punk in a progressive medley to the theme of a 20-something coming of age tale, and yes, I imagine the boners are still pretty consistent.

There’s some rawkin’ drums opening up the track we’re premiering, “Old Scent” which is available for streaming below, along with some tour dates and a previously released music video for the band’s title-track, “Yes, I Can’t”. Enjoy. Cheers!!
