Naked Raygun to record new tracks for first time in like a hundred years. + U.S East Coast tour dates!

Influential Chicago punk band Naked Raygun will record tracks for a series of 7" records. That's hardcore old school, like the band has been frozen in time since 1992. No mention of digital in the press release. Raygun put out a bunch of albums back in the day. And if it wasn't for MTV's 120 minutes airing the video for "Home" in the early 1990s, i wouldn't have heard of them. The band broke up in 1992 and had a brief reunion in 1997. In 2006 they reunited for Riot Fest in Chicago. People liked that, so they're still doing stuff. The lineup, which changed several times since they formed in 1980, consists of where the band left off in 1992- Eric Spicer on drums, Bill Stephens on guitar, Pierre Kezdy on bass and Jeff Pezzati on vocals.
