WYO Punks Teenage Bottlerocket Dedicate New Album To Fallen Drummer
Three years ago tomorrow, Teenage Bottlerocket drummer Brandon Carlisle died unexpectedly. Now, his bandmates and brother are back in the studio honoring his memory with a new album.
"It’s been 3 years since we lost our brother, best friend, and drummer Brandon. Since then we’ve lost a lot of other friends and we carry them all with us every step of the way, Today, we’re honoring Brandon the best way we know how, by recording a new album at the Blasting Room," the band posted on Facebook. "This one is for Brandon, and for all of our loved ones who have passed on."
TBR also posted pictures from the legendary Fort Collins, Colo. studio. Their next release will mark the band's eighth full-length album, and their fifth album recorded at The Blasting Room, which is renowned among the most popular studios in the punk genre.
Teenage Bottlerocket formed in 2000 when Laramie natives and twin brothers Brandon and Ray Carlisle met another Wyoming punk rocker, Kody Templeman. Templeman co-founded The Lillingtons with several classmates from his hometown of Newcastle. They released several albums and earned a national following in the late-90s. After Brandon's death in 2015, the band soldiered on with new drummer Darren Chewka and continues to tour around the world.
