Berkeley, CA's indie-emo pop punksters Mom Jeans, are gearing up to release their long awaited and 3rd LP titled "Sweet Tooth", set for release on February 25, 2022. The instantly catchy new single "What's Up?" is out now and shifts away from their garage lo-fi emo punk, taking the band into a more polished and radio ready sound.
The new album arrives three years after Mom Jeans’ second LP Puppy Love, and was recorded in New Jersey at The Barber Shop Studios with producer Brett Romnes (The Front Bottoms, Oso Oso, Dogleg, I Am the Avalanche, The Movielife). Rumor has it that they also pulled in some guest vocals from Save Face’s Tyler Povanda and Prince Daddy & the Hyena’s Kory Gregory for the new LP.
“Those hits by Blink-182 and Green Day, all those bands, it’s just hooks for days and really excellent songwriting,” says vocalist Eric Butler (he/they). “They really just tried to write incredible songs that would get stuck in people’s heads, so we wanted to try our own version of that. Ear candy is the goal, so Sweet Tooth is the record.”
Said about the new LP, "The result of Mom Jeans' expedition into the Golden Age of snotty pop-punk and cheeky radio rock is a 13-track hit of musical ecstasy, crammed with delicious guitar crunch and infectious melodics beneath teen-to-young adult angst and gleeful abandon."
