The stand up bass is back!
To mark their 40th anniversary, Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom, better known as The Stray Cats, announced today that they will be heading into the studio to record their first new album in 25 years, and head out to tour in 2019.
In a press release shared by Billboard.com, Slim Jim Phantom said, "Making a new Stray Cats album for 2019 in Nashville seems like the exact right thing, right time, right place, and right band for the gig! We have an album's worth of new songs that are classic rockabilly while keeping the music and style current and fresh, like always."
Brian Setzer added, "Forty years ago, us three teenagers started a little band to play a musical style that had long since passed, and most folks had never heard of. Forty years later we stand together and still get that same thrill and exhilaration from the music. That feeling is what makes the fireworks go off and the sparks fly. It makes the world go around."
Looking forward to seeing these guys as they, "strut right by with my tail in the air."
