Mall punks rejoice!
Unwritten Law has emerged with a determination to release new music, and they’ve signed with the label Cyber Tracks to do so. The LA label is run by El Hefe of NOFX and his wife, Jen Abeyta. Unwritten Law’s last album came out in 2011, and fans have been waiting patiently since. The band, fronted by Scott Russo, has been around since 1990 and has seven studio albums under it’s belt. The new album will be acoustic.
“I’ve been done with this acoustic record for a year and was looking for the right home, with the right spirit to put it out,” said Russo. “I’ve found my/our home and people. I can’t wait for you all to see exactly what the f—- I’ve been up to. [Unwritten Law] and Cyber Tracks have something I honestly believe is different, special and definitely unexpected.”
Although Unwritten Law hasn’t released released new music recently, they have been touring. Right now the band is in Australia, but they will be back stateside for an upcoming tour. The dates are listed in full below.
