HERE COME THE DROOGS! THE ADICTS CELEBRATE 35 YEARS WITH NEW ALBUM OUT IN SEPTEMBER
August 9, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – UK punk legends The Adicts have announced plans to release their tenth studio album, All The Young Droogs, via DC-Jam Records on September 11. The band recently launched a campaign on Pledgemusic.com (http://www.pledgemusic.com/theadicts), where fans can pre-order the new album in a variety of bundles.

For the last thirty-five years, English punk band The Adicts have been in a relentless pursuit of making music and touring for their fans. Night after night, singer Monkey adorns his signature jester’s outfit while his cohorts Pete Dee (guitar), Scruff” Ellis (guitar), Kid Dee, (drums), and Shahen (bass) back him dressed in all white.
Since their highly revered debut, Songs of Praise, in 1981, which featured the fan favorite “Viva la Revolution,” The Adicts have gone on to become one of the most influential punk bands of the last three decades. A feat that very few bands have ever accomplished. While others in the early English punk scene took a heavy heart singing about politics, society and angst, The Adicts separated themselves with their dystopian style and upbeat music with light-hearted lyrics that jabbed with sarcasm.
Fast forward to 2012 and the only thing that’s changed is the world around them. On September 11, The Adicts will release their tenth studio album, one that is sure to surprise fans. For their latest release, the band stepped out on the ledge, integrating new styles and influences in their music, while maintaining their signature sound.
Featuring tracks like the punk anthem, sing-along “Horrorshow” and the grooving jam “Give It To Me Baby,” All The Young Droogs finds The Adicts at their finest. Reinvigorated and inspired by their fans who helped fund the album directly, The Adicts have once again proven their punk royalty.
The Adicts will invade the U.S. in early September before heading to Brazil later that month to support the release of All The Young Droogs. Tour dates are listed below.
