Teen Agers turned five years old in 2017 and are celebrating with their fifth release and fifth consecutive year performing at FEST. The band started out as a side project back in 2012. Mostly as an excuse to hang out and have a few beers after work. Their more active projects at the time (How Dare You, Go Rydell, Direct Effect, etc) started to enter periods of dormancy and eventual extermination. Teen Agers quickly became the main creative outlet, eventually leading to collaborating on recordings with Roger Lima (Less Than Jake), Tom May (The Menzingers) and Jamie Woolford (The Stereo). The project has lead to hundreds of shows around US and two European tours including a spot on Grozerock in 2016.
On 10/13/2017 Teen Agers will release a brand new 4 song EP titled “Keystones” on Smartpunk Records. Tracked between Retro City and The Menzingers practice space by Tom May and Andy Clarke during a snowy Philly January, these songs have the fun, bouncy versus and powerful, melodic choruses of their previous releases mixed with the intensity, darker tone and stronger riffs that are to come on their second full length “When We Were” which they’re currently recording in Orlando, FL.
“FEST is our favorite weekend of the year, every year. We’re so freaking excited to get to do it again and party with everyone. WOOHOO!”
