Seas. 4 - Ep. 12 - Ray Carlisle of Teenage Bottlerocket on How Their Release Cycle Creates Longevity

Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock podcast where I am going to be speaking with Ray Carlisle of the sickest punk band around Teenage Bottlerocket. 

Teenage Bottlerocket is one of the most well known post-90’s punk bands with 9 full-length albums released since 2003 along with a few EP’s, a live album, a handful of splits and many appearances on compilations over the years all while touring extensively for most of the last 2 decades.

They were actually the first band I saw live post-COVID as well. They are the epitome of punk rock in almost every sense of the word, and I am excited to hear more from Ray about what they have coming up with all the tours that are following a brand new EP that was just released entitled “So Dumb” (also known as “So Dumb/So Stoked”) on top of all the cool stuff they have accomplished over the years.
