Nachdem Swingin‘ Utters erst im letzten Jahr ihr 30-jähriges Jubiläum mit einer Greatest Hits-Collection feierten, soll nun das nächste Album folgen. Ganze vier Jahre sind bereits seit der letzten Full-Length „Fistful Of Hollow“ vergangen. Die neue Platte „Love And Peace“ erscheint am 31. August via Fat Wreck Chords.

“When sexism, racism and nationalism is the agenda, it’s time to speak up.”

Darius Koski erklärt: “This is, by far, our absolutely most political record we’ve ever done. We don’t generally write very pointedly political songs. We tend to be a little more vague and abstract. But this one is pretty pointedly disgusted and pissed off and really directly attacking these fuckin’ people in office.” und Bonnel führt fort “When sexism, racism and nationalism is the agenda, it’s time to speak up.”. Gemeinsam mit Chris Dugan (Green Day) produzierte man „Love And Peace“ in neuer Besetzung mit Tony Teixeira am Bass und Luke Ray am Schlagzeug. Beide spielten zuvor bei Cobra Skulls. Als erste Kostprobe liefern die kalifornischen Punk-Veteranen den Song „Human Potential“.

„I, also, believe you can hear the love put into this album and it just makes me more excited to record more!“

Gegenüber Brooklyn Vegan berichtete der Frontmann Johnny Bonnel:  „The album art was inspired by Luke and Tony. The recording process was so rad! There was no negative attitude and we were all kind of giddy with nervous energy. Around the corner from the Nu-Tone studios was a Mexican market that Tony and Luke bought two ceramic gorillas eating bananas with smiles on their faces. I thought it summed up everything about this record so I got to work on drawing these two buds. I believe the ceramic gorillas’ new home is at Nu-Tone! I, also, believe you can hear the love put into this album and it just makes me more excited to record more!“
