Redd Kross Return to Rock the Underground with “What’s a Boy to Do”

Listen to the latest song from the band’s upcoming album, Beyond the Door. 

Redd Kross to the rescue! The legendary Los Angeles rock pioneers are set to return with Beyond the Door, the band’s first album since 2012’s Researching the Blues. In advance of the record, Redd Kross have shared “What’s a Boy to Do.” Listen to it below.

 

Still led by brothers Jeff and Steven McDonald, the group insist that Beyond the Door is their most collaborative effort in decades. “Jeff is still very much the driving force behind the compositions, but with more help from me than ever,” Steven explained. “Jeff and I haven’t shared this much of the writing and singing since ?Born Innocent i?n 1981.”

When Beyond the Door drops in August, ?the band says fans should expect “total commitment to having the best f*cking time we can have while we’re all still here,” a.k.a. “the Party.” Preaching the gospel of rock and roll that can save your soul, the McDonald brothers and company—guitarist Jason Shapiro and drummer Dale Crover of The Melvins, to be exact—have still got that unquantifiable “it” that makes them special.

Citing a panorama of influences including K-pop, glitter gangs, embarrassed tweens, long-term relationships, and a mysterious character named Fantástico Roberto, Beyond is the sound of Redd Kross circa 2019. Swirling with psychedelic power pop elements and the band’s penchant for hard-charging riffs married to sweet and sticky melodies, it’s Redd Kross at their tuneful finest.

Beyond the Door arrives on August 23 via Merge in the usual formats of CD and vinyl, along with a “peak vinyl”—a.k.a. a limited-edition pressing on opaque purple vinyl.

The band will hit the road hard in support of the record, linking up with tourmates The Melvins in San Diego, CA, on September 3, with the groups rolling across the country before winding up in Las Vegas on November 5. See the full tour itinerary below.

#3waysteve is Happening! Redd Kross / OFF! / Melvins this December in So Cal

By the end of the evening, Steve McDonald will have banged his head so hard and so often, he could wind up with a concussion. The shaggy-haired local bassist is playing with all three bands tonight, starting with Redd Kross, the group he began with his brother Jeff in 1979, when they were just 12 and 16 years old, respectively. They’ll reprise their 1984 covers EP, Teen Babes From Monsanto, although Redd Kross’ redoubtable current lineup lacks much of the frenzied intensity of the early-’80s version. Steve will play even faster and harder with the Keith Morris–fronted hardcore supergroup Off! before relenting slightly for the momentous riff-wallowing of grunge survivors Melvins. Also at Pappy & Harriet’s, Saturday, Dec. 31.
