Williams Street Records will release the sophomore album Another Big Night Down the Drain from Cheeseburger, a Brooklyn-based party rock band founded by (among others) Christy Karacas, co-creator of the Adult Swim's animated Superjail! series. The release is due out May 3rd. If you're a fan of rock, comedy and/or animation, then Cheeseburger's new album is something you will want to feast upon heartily.
Here's a little backstory on Cheeseburger: The band made a splash on the New York music scene with its party-popping, self-titled first album. Another Big Night Down the Drain is the new, 11-song release from the band's new label, Williams Street Records, and it will drop May 3rd on both CD and digital download. Original band members Joe Bradley (vocals), Luke Crotty (Drums) and Christy Karacas (Guitar) are now joined by Jayson Green (vocals), Christian Gordy (Bass) and Eric Dufresne (Guitar) on the release, and the result is a bigger sound, but the same riff heavy garage punk vibe that fans have come to expect.
Cheeseburger's self-titled 2006 debut was released to worldwide acclaim, as critics were awestruck by their frenzied and gritty garage punk sound garnering the band's comparisons to the likes of The Stooges and The Dickies. Another Big Night Down the Drain boasts all of the same brawn but adds even more bite. The record's bigger sound transports this group of party seekers to a whole new level musically, with a thematic album telling the tale of one poor sap's adventurous night on the town. Tracks on the album are as follows:
1. Party Song
3. Big Night
4. Tight Jeans
6. Bobby's Theme
7. Deep in the Cups
10. Roll Like That
11. Good Time Charlie
Additionally, music from Another Big Night Down the Drain will be featured throughout the upcoming season of Adult Swim's Superjail!, the animated comedy co-created by the band's guitarist Christy Karacas and Stephen Warbrick (Beavis and Butthead, Daria). New episodes from the second season of the series following the chaotic characters and antics from the world's most violent prison can be seen on Adult Swim.
