LISTEN: Tijuana Panthers Announce New Album, Release First Single


Long Beach surf rockers Tijuana Panthers are set to release their latest album Wayne Interest on June 3rd, and they’ve released a new track to give fans a taste of what to expect.


Wayne Interest is the third LP from the So-Cal rock trio. Produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen) and recorded in Oregon, the new album is an upgrade from the lo-fi sound of 2012's Semi Sweet. The new track “Cherry Street” still has that retro fuzz sound that you can expect from Tijuana Panthers, but is less of a riff on Buddy Holly and the Beach Boys. Kicking off with a fat bass riff and rolling into the bratty vocals, it almost sounds like a pop-punk take on New Order. Rapid-fire drums underscore the echoing guitar—it’s still got that garage rock tinge, but the garage is now a much fancier stuidio. It’s a sound that drifts away from that 50’s surf-rock vibe and more into post-punk recklessness. 


Check out a (really) short teaser for the new album here to tide you over until June, and listen to "Cherry Street" below.
