Strung Out Strings It Out for 20 Years

Announces 7th studio album to mark two decades of doin’ it their way.


By Blurt Staff


With six studio albums, five 7-inches, two EPs, a live CD, a
B-sides album, and numerous soundtrack and compilation appearances under their
belts, SoCal punks Strung Out are venturing once more into the record bins.
Mark your calendars for Sept. 29 when they release their seventh studio LP, via
Fat Wreck Chords.


“With Agents Of The Underground, I wanted to
acknowledge the fact that we are still alive and kicking just below the
consciousness of the mainstream media and are celebrating our place here in
“The Underground”,” says Strung Out vocalist Jason Cruz. “Like a
resistance movement, we move freely and without boundaries. We say what we feel
and do it all our own way, and we’ve done it all this time without radio,
without TV, and without the help of a corporate record label. We are the
essence of what the punk rock movement started out as and has strayed so far
from. We are living proof that you can succeed by doing things your own way.”


The band proves on Agents Of The Underground that
they are still doing it their own way after all these years. Unlike previous
releases, the five-piece enlisted an existing fan of the band, Cameron Webb (Motorhead,
Ignite, Social Distortion
), to produce the album, which helped the group
record their strongest album to date. “We’ve done a lot of touring and made a
lot of records,” admits Cruz, “and we have learned A LOT. I have a tendency to
defy expectation and abandon what has already been achieved, and Cameron was
great at balancing what people want to hear from Strung Out, and at the same
time, letting the band move forward. I believe this album is truly the
culmination of everything we’ve done.”


Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara fans can
