Veteran punk rockers the Descendents haven’t released an album in 12 years, and while their highly anticipated Hypercaffium Spazzinate won’t arrive until July 29th, they’ve decided fans shouldn’t have to wait any longer. The record is now available to stream in full below via NPR.
The upcoming release, which follows 2004’s Cool to Be You, gets its name from frontman Milo Aukerman’s vision of a “better, more potent version of caffeine,” as he recently told Rolling Stone — a notion realized considering the 16-track effort clocks in around 30 minutes. The members started circulating new material as far back as 2011, and later laid down tracks at the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado, which drummer Bill Stevenson co-owns. Additional recording was done in the home studios of Stevenson, guitarist Stephen Egerton, and Aukerman.
