Though they’ve existed as a band for more than two decades, the tuneful California punks haven’t lost any of their youthful energy or idealism.

The group’s most recent album, Let the Dominoes Fall, which was released way back in 2009, included politically charged songs about the Iraq War and the fallout resulting from Hurricane Katrina.

The group is currently at work on a long-overdue new album, and it’ll be interesting to see which news headlines catch frontman Tim Armstrong’s ire this time around.
