Rock*a*Teens


Late ’90s swampy, melodramatic indie rockers the Rock*A*Teens are back with some good news. First, the band is remastering/re-releasing their highly underrated masterpiece, Sweet Bird Of Youth, out on June 3 from Merge Records. The album will be released on vinyl for the first time, and will include a bonus download of the live set from one of the band’s last shows before disbanding in 2002. The Rock*A*Teens also announced a reunion tour, and released a video announcement to celebrate. Check out the video, tracklist for the album and the band’s tour dates below.
