What's so audacious about Audacity? Nothing, unless you hate fun. Orange County's sunny clime and sing-along punk legacy has been steadily spawning heavy hitters since the late Seventies, and these new kids on the block are no exception. Last year's Butter Knife LP is hardly in the rearview and now the Fullerton, CA garage pop punks are readying a spankin' new 7" for a December 2nd release on Suicide Squeeze Records (order yours). Side A's "Counting the Days" is all sweat-soaked power pop nirvana, while Side B's "Mind Your Own Business" sees the boys tackle a cover of vintage post-punk heroes Delta 5.
Audacity is currently midway through a Japanese tour right now and will be bopping around Tokyo until October 25th. They seem to be having a whale of a time, and not doing too bad at all for a band that, according to their Bandcamp page, started off in 2002 when they played for their elementary school talent show. All the more reason to start 'em young!
