Hayley and the Crushers ‘Trendy Grownup Kicks’ out Sept 13

AUGUST 23, 2022 (Detroit, MI) — One half pop, one half poison, all “poolside glitter punk,” California-to-Motor Metropolis transplants Hayley and the Crushers supply up a tsunami of daring, unhealthy woman energy. Anointed as “the bare embodiment of energy pop punk” by New Wave icon Josie Cotton (who signed the band to her Kitten Robotic Data in 2021), Modern Adult Kicks is the Crushers’ most bold and self-possessed album up to now.

Helmed by husband-and-wife staff guitarist Hayley Crusher Cain and bass participant Dr. Cain ESQ (with Motion Ben Cabreana on drums), Trendy Grownup Kicks (launch date: September 13, 2022 by way of Kitten Robotic Data) was produced by legendary LA punk producer Paul Roessler (TSOL, Josie Cotton, Richie Ramone) and mastered by Mass Giorgini (Anti-Flag, Rise Towards, Alkaline Trio) at Sonic Iguana Studios.

Taboo,” the most recent album single (out all over the place at present), is a pulsing Pat Benitar-styled pop-rock anthem that leaves the listener feeling equally haunted and hunted. Stated Hayley, “You’ll be able to inform we had enjoyable on Kicks, however the enjoyable is extra depraved.”

The accompanying “Taboo” music video was filmed in Detroit, a far cry from the band’s beachy San Luis Obispo, California stomping grounds. “Not solely is it an insanely cool music city, however Detroit can also be filled with group spirit and can-do creativity,” Hayley mentioned of her gritty new residence. “We filmed at our favourite classic retailer in Mexicantown (Flamingo Vintage), a thrift-punk fever dream.” Further scenes showcase the band’s unfinished attic, perched atop a Twenties fixer-upper.

In accordance with the band, Trendy Grownup Kicks represents one of many solely constants over the previous few years.

“We went via the Covid-19 pandemic with the album, we signed to Kitten Robotic Data in the midst of it, and we began working each remotely and in-person with [producer] Paul Roessler of the Screamers, the closest factor to LA punk royalty we may think about,” Hayley mentioned. “The album was one thing actual to carry onto throughout a time of turbulence.”

Naturally, progress begets rising pains. After promoting their comedian ebook store in an effort to maintain up with a rigorous tour schedule, venues shut down utterly. Says Hayley: “The band felt extra somber through the creation interval: extra ‘grown up.’ Everybody was grappling with a brand new pandemic actuality. Our drummer was severely injured after a skateboard crash. Dr. Cain misplaced his skill to work because of the lockdown. I confronted large private questions. These songs are about heartbreak, isolation, dependancy. However, after all, there’s sunshine, too. Josie Cotton believed in us and introduced us into her crew. The album shines with this magic contact.”

Kicks rollercoasters via the Crusherverse’s quirky underworld with a diary’s value of intrigue and a splash of excessive influence gloss. Gathering hooks from monitor one, Hayley conjures up the electrical energy of first-car freedom, the woes of suburban isolation and the lurid pleasures of Y2K chat rooms all wrapped within the heat glow of a late-night infomercial. Whereas the content material right here is little doubt “grownup,” there’s no scarcity of kicks available, both. Stated Hayley: “Rising up doesn’t need to imply you cease dancing.”

Hayley and the Crushers’ Modern Adult Kicks shall be launched on September 13 by way of Kitten Robotic Data.
