Audacity Share “Cold Rush,” Album Out 10/29

Audacity Premiere “Cold Rush,” Butter Knife out October 29 via Suicide Squeeze Records. Announce US Tour Dates w/ Mean Jeans + Hunters

Audacity reveal a new track, “Cold Rush” from their upcoming full length Butter Knife out October 29 via Suicide Squeeze. The song stays true to Audacity’s style – a rowdy blend of garage rock, punk and guitars tangled in noise.

After nine years of existence, Fullerton quartet, Audacity, has left the garage of their humble 9th grade beginning, but the garage hasn’t left the spirit of their music. With two LPs, a slew of EPs, and no shortage of touring under their belts, Audacity are hardly a wet-behind-the-ears rock band. Their razor-sharp musicianship and high-energy performances were solid enough to earn them the privilege of serving as the backing band for both King Tuff and Todd Congelliere (Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland).

And while you could hear the band pushing the boundaries on their prior releases—a nod to Descendents melodic hardcore here, a dash of Replacements’ bar-band flirtations there—Audacity seems less interested in showing a broad swath of influences as they are in delivering the craftiest hooks and sweatiest live show possible.

Audacity’s latest full-length Butter Knife out October 29 via Suicide Squeeze is still, at its core, a garage rock record. The economic instrumentation, grit-tinged guitar jangle, pogo-prompting tempos, and sing-along choruses can all be traced back to the seminal Nuggets collections. But ultimately, Butter Knife doesn’t sound so much like an homage to The Sonics as it sounds like a young band striving to make the most ebullient and jubilant noise possible.
