Beginning on Thursday, TEEN AGERS (Orlando, FL) will embark on a 10-day tour of the East Coast in support of its debut full-length, I Hate It. The Orlando punk outfit – which features past and current members of Go Rydell, Protagonist, How Dare You and Direct Effect – will be playing shows with Divided Heaven.
Recorded by Less Than Jake’s Roger Lima and mixed and mastered by Stephen Egerton of Descendents and All, I Hate It was released in November by Anchorless Records. The album is available on LP and CD formats, with the former being limited to 300 on color vinyl. The record is also out digitally via Bandcamp and iTunes.
You can currently stream the 10-song long player in full at Punknews.org. Additionally, Teen Agers recently teamed up with PureVolume to premier a video for “Here We Go Again,” one of the album’s many standout tracks.

Recorded by Less Than Jake’s Roger Lima and mixed and mastered by Stephen Egerton of Descendents and All, I Hate It erupts like a sonic Cthulhu from beneath the Florida swamps, barreling its way through 30 minutes of propulsive, dynamic and undeniably catchy punk rock. Teen Agers contains no actual teenagers – I mean, look at those beards – but it does boast past and current members of bands such as Go Rydell, Protagonist, How Dare You and Direct Effect. With plenty of melody to satisfy the crowd at your next wine mixer and a hearty helping of riffage guaranteed to satiate any unresolved adolescent angst, this barnstormer of a debut is like an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object – just a bit slower, so as to not pull a muscle. Highly recommended for fans of The Menzingers, Hot Water Music, Dag Nasty and Lifetime.
