Karl Alvarez, Milo Aukerman, Bill Stevenson and Stephen Egerton of pop-punk pioneers Descendents discussed with Rolling Stone Magazine the personal trials that inspired their new album "Hypercaffium Spazzinate" out on July 29th via Epitaph Records. Here's a little extract:
"I think there's quite a bit on the record that's kind of unflinchingly looking at getting older," the heavily tattooed, gruff-voiced Alvarez says of Hypercaffium. "And it's nice because I think a lot of rock bands aren't very honest about that; they all want to exist in some universe where they're perpetually between the ages of 21 and 35. We're codgers; we're not afraid to admit it."
