Today we're streaming "Three Whole Years" from Junior Battles' second full-length record Rally, which will be released on Tuesday via Paper + Plastick. Listen to the song in the replies, let us know what you think and if you like what you hear pre-orders are still available. You should also read our interview with guitarist/vocalist Sam Sutherland if you haven't yet.
We decided if we were going to do this record we were going to indulge all of our dumb shit, which means loving Limblifter, loving the Constantines and loving this insanely dumb idea of ‘And you will score the winning goal because you are very good at sports.’

Junior Battles new album Rally will hit stores on May 27th. Redbull is premiering the song with some more info from the band and/or you can hear it in the replies.
"In the past, a lot of Junior Battles songs dealt really deliberately with the uncertainty of your early 20s -- trying to figure out how to be a decent adult who still can tour and pay rent and still go to shows on weeknights," says singer/guitarist Sam Sutherland. "When we started writing 'Rally,' things had changed. We had stopped touring as much, and the anxiety of 'Idle Ages' was fading. In its place, we found ourselves writing more broadly about our place in the world and the kind of people we felt ourselves becoming....

Today we're stoked to bring you a brand new song from Canada's Junior Battles. The group is releasing its debut full-length, Idle Ages, on June 28 via Paper + Plastick Records in the United States.

The track shows the old-school pop-punk side of Junior Battles, which will please fans of early Blink 182 and Fall Out Boy, while also showcasing the noodly guitar lines that give off slight shades of some Midwestern emo, almost like Tigers Jaw. All the while, it's still very much a punk song - and a punk record overall - and it's a...
