Descendents unveil new tune, “Like The Way I Know”

Punk rock vets Descendents have shared their fresh track “Like The Way I Know” which you can check out below. The song appears on the band’s recently announced new album ‘9th & Walnut’ which drops on July 23rd via Epitaph (pre-order).

One of the very first Descendents songs, written in 1977, by (founding member) David Nolte, about how living in Hermosa Beach made him feel like a freak,” comments drummer Bill Stevenson.

Regarding the upcoming album, a presser explains further, “In 2002, the original four-piece lineup — bassist Tony Lombardo, drummer Bill Stevenson, guitarist Frank Navetta (d. 2008), and vocalist Milo Aukerman — entered the studio to finally record the songs with which they first forged their genre-defining sound. The 18-track result, 9th & Walnut, was named for their Long Beach practice space back in the day. The album features the bands’ earliest material written from 1977 through 1980.

ICYMI, Descendents will be hooking up with The Menzingers and Rise Against for a U.S. summer tour — check out those dates after the tune below.
