the first-ever Jeff Rosenstock live album, Thanks, Sorry!, is here

October 14, 2019

Jeff Rosenstock and his band, Death Rosenstock (featuring John DeDomenici on bass, Mike Huguenor on guitar, Dan Potthast on keys/vox, and Kevin Higuchi on drums), have been on the road pretty much since they recorded We Cool? back in 2014. If they didn’t take this year off, someone was gonna lose their mind, and in Jeff’s words, “the thought of us going a few weeks without playing a show for the first time in half a decade made me feel like… dang, this is kinda like the end of a reallllllly long tour.”

So how do you end a realllllly long tour, then? With a big ass celebration at home in New York, of course. And why not document that celebration? Over the course of four sold-out shows at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, producer Jack Shirley recorded 29-ish songs for Thanks, Sorry!, Death Rosenstock’s first-ever live album.

Featuring a 76-page photo book by Hiro Tanaka (whose photos have graced the covers of Jeff’s last two records, 2018’s POST– and 2016’s WORRY.), Thanks, Sorry! is a document of the band, their crew, their friends, and everything that’s been going on these last few years. It’s a one-of-a-kind piece (translation: order one now because who knows when he’ll make any more again) that brilliantly reflects the positive energy that’s alive and bouncing around the room at any Death Rosenstock show.

Thanks, Sorry! is available to pre-order today from Really Records: https://bit.ly/2B7f1sX

DISCLAIMER: despite this release being done through Jeff’s own label and being shipped straight to you from his Brooklyn apartment, Death Rosenstock is still proudly signed to Polyvinyl Records, a label that has been incredibly supportive and helpful with this entire release.

It wasn’t long ago that Pitchfork declared Jeff Rosenstock to be “one of the most important figures in modern punk,” and he certainly lived up to that praise with the surprise release of his last album, POST-, dropped on New Years Day 2018 from Polyvinyl Records.

After playing with Bomb the Music Industry! for a decade, Jeff switched gears by producing records for The Smith Street Band, Dan Andriano, Mikey Erg and more, and started putting out records under his own name. After the release of 2016’s WORRY., things started to get way more intense for Jeff and his band. They made their first TV appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly, USA Today called WORRY. the #1 album of 2016, and the band took to the road, touring endlessly for the past two years, taking breaks only to record.

"2017 kinda felt like the year when we snuck in the back door," Rosenstock says. "We kept getting opportunities to do stuff - even though we take those opportunities to do stupid shit like say how much we made on stage." (This is the guy whose Pitchfork Music Festival performance trended on Twitter after he took the stage and exclaimed, “Seventy-five hundred! Dollars! For us! To play! This festival!” Because, you know, he felt like he had to come clean about it.)

And as if writing, recording, producing, touring, and releasing a new live album on his own label aren't enough, Jeff has also spent most of the last two years composing all of the music for the Cartoon Network breakout program, Craig of the Creek, which began airing in 2018.
