Lifetime prepares new material

Wednesday, June 28, 2006 10:26 AM PT

Official press release:

Recent Decaydance signees and New Jersey bastions of punk, Lifetime are finally ready to give the rest of the country a taste of their recent reunions. The band will head out for a series of shows this summer before heading into the studio for their new-millennial debut. Also planned, to tide the masses over until the 2007 full-length, is a two track single to be released this fall on Decaydance, the details of which are in the works but at least one new song will be debuted live as part of their Summer sets.

Originally formed in early '90s New Jersey, the legendary Lifetime had the dubious honor of watching most of its peers fade out or fall off. Rather than wallowing in nostalgia, like fellow celebrated Jersey musicians, the band became its own Boss, reinventing its sound, leaving a hardcore-by-the-rules scene to decide for itself. That many since have decided to further explore Lifetime's blueprint has proven something to be thankful for, although few compare to the real thing. Allowing the emotional cracks of its early days to fuel the passionately crafted classics of its later period, Lifetime draws from a tradition of melodic rockers ever committed to maintaining the bite of punk's explosive side, from Husker Du to Pinhead Gunpowder. By the late 1990s, Lifetime had redefined underground music in America, steering it towards a progressive transition from the hardcore of yesteryear.
