The Bouncing Souls Announce New Album, "Ghosts On The Boardwalk," Out January 12th on Chunksaah Records!

By the end of the Bouncing Souls' set, a run of anthems from “Old School” through “Kids and Heroes,” fans had all but overtaken the stage: shouting into microphones, dispensing hugs and high-fives. The band had become merely a conduit, creating the space for other people's joy. - The New York Times

Their set is anthem after anthem, frontman Greg Attonito unabashedly taking pictures with fans mid-song, happily shaking hands with teenagers who will go to school tomorrow and brag about it, and amiably, if a bit distantly, tossing off songs from all of the band's eras--this is a band that still unabashedly plays "Old School" to kids who hadn't been born when that song came out. - The Village Voice

In 2009, The Bouncing Souls celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band by releasing a new song on the first of each month throughout the year, via digital download. They also pressed these songs onto a series of 7" vinyl records which they sold everywhere they went on a year-long world tour. Here, finally, those twelve songs have been gathered into a complete collection, entitled "Ghosts on The Boardwalk," available January 12th on Chunksaah Records.

* This enhanced CD features "The Bouncing Souls 20 Year Anniversary TV Special" and will be available at the band's upcoming 3rd Annual Home For The Holidays shows in Asbury Park, NJ December 26th - 29th. Preorders are available now at and ship on January 5th. Check out the band's recent Daytrotter Session here!
