Teenage Bottlerocket has announced plans to release a brand new 7″, American Deutsch Bag, via Fat Wreck Chords on November 27, 2013. The vinyl offering will feature three songs and follows 2012’s Freak Out! The band comments on the new material:
“On Teenage Bottlerocket’s last tour in Europe we made friends with a dude in a Lethal Weapon 2 hat. We referred to him as a Deutsch bag. He was a good sport and found the insult endearing. I’ve always loved Germany. I took German in high school and we sang alot of songs. One of the songs was entitled “Ich bin Auslander und Spreche Nicht Gut Deutsch”. This is roughly translated “I’m not from here and my German sucks”. We decided to make it a pop punk song. If I screw up any of the pronunciation it’s because my German sucks, it’s a pretty good excuse to fuck up the words. We also included a new song about smoking reefer and a song by our dear friend Tony Sly called “Via Munich”. We recorded the 7” at the Blasting Room with Andrew Berlin. Everything seemed to fall into place. The title is my favorite part of it all; ladies and gentleman, I present to you, theAMERICAN DEUTSCH BAG 7″ BY TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET! The 7″ will be available on our upcoming European tour with VOLBEAT andICED EARTH. Guten tag.”
