Interesting News: Redd Kross on Merge

I love it when threads converge. A friend of mine alerted me to this post today:
Redd Kross is back and delivering their signature brand of genuine rock ‘n’ roll with a vengeance. On August 7, Merge will release Researching the Blues, the first new album from Redd Kross in 15 years. Researching the Blues features 10 new songs clocking in at just under 32 minutes. With songs written by Jeff and produced and mixed by Steven, the album is by far the band’s favorite record. Steve says, “It has the most singular artistic vision of any record we’ve done. It’s just 10 really fucking awesome songs that have the ability to move you in many different ways.”
I won't say it's the most exciting new record this year--you know where that honor falls, about which more in the coming days--but when Mac is putting out Redd Kross, that's pretty freaking exciting. Gonna be a good summer.

I've enjoyed Redd Kross since "Annettes Got The Hits". I like "Redd Blood Cells" better than the original.

Ten songs in under 32 minutes?

Obviously, I'm there.
