Orlando, FL's TEEN AGERS - which features members of Go Rydell, Protagonist, How Dare You and Direct Effect - recently entered Moathouse Recording Studio to record four new songs with Less Than Jake's Roger Lima. Three of the tracks will appear on a split 7" with Lima's side project, Rehasher, while the final song will be used for a TBA split release. The songs will be mixed by Stephen Egerton of Descendents and All. A label for the split has not yet been determined.

I Hate It, Teen Agers' debut full-length, was released in late 2013 by Anchorless Records (Chumped, The Sainte Catherines). The album is available on LP and CD formats, with the former being limited to 300 on color vinyl. The record is also out digitally via Bandcamp and iTunes.

You can currently stream the 10-song long player in full at Punknews.org. Additionally, Teen Agers recently teamed up with PureVolume to premier a video for "Here We Go Again," one of the album's many standout tracks.

In other news, Teen Agers has been confirmed to appear at Pouzza Fest in Montreal, Quebec during the weekend of May 16 - 18. The lineup includes bands such as The Hold Steady, The Menzingers and Dillinger Four. Stay tuned for more Teen Agers news in the coming month, including a Texas tour with Divided Heaven. You can follow the band on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates.

BIO: Recorded by Less Than Jake's Roger Lima and mixed and mastered by Stephen Egerton of Descendents and All, I Hate It erupts like a sonic Cthulhu from beneath the Florida swamps, barreling its way through 30 minutes of propulsive, dynamic and undeniably catchy punk rock. Teen Agers contains no actual teenagers - I mean, look at those beards - but it does boast past and current members of bands such as Go Rydell, Protagonist, How Dare You and Direct Effect. With plenty of melody to satisfy the crowd at your next wine mixer and a hearty helping of rif#e guaranteed to satiate any unresolved adolescent angst, this barnstormer of a debut is like an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object - just a bit slower, so as to not pull a muscle. Highly recommended for fans of The Menzingers, Hot Water Music, Dag Nasty and Lifetime.
