Audacity-Butter Knife

Audacity new full size Butter Knife drops subsequent Tuesday 10/29 by way of Suicide Squeeze and to have a good time the joyous celebration, Spin is streaming the album in full. Circulate the document hereButter Knife is a garage rock record at its core. 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.

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 is known for their raucous fun live shows and will hit the road this fall on a tour of North American with Mean Jeans and Hunters. Full list of tour dates below.
