Out with the new, in with the old
on 14 July 2014
New/old album from Hermosa Beach punk veterans Pennywise, re-united with original vocalist Jim Lindberg for the first time since 2009. As the title, 'Yesterdays' implies, these 11 songs are updated old material/demos, many written by deceased former bassist Jason Matthew Thirsk. 'Yesterdays' is closest in sound to their earliest material, in particular, 'Wild Card/A Word From The Wise', debut album 'Pennywise' and second album 'Unknown Road'. So, if you're looking for a PW album that sounds like 'All Or Nothing' then you better look elsewhere. It's still Pennywise but it's an early Pennywise that still proudly wear their old-school punk influences on their sleeve. It'll do while we're waiting for the next 'genuine' Pennywise album.
