Pop-punk ensemble, Mom Jeans, have announced the released of their latest full-length album entitled Bear Market this past week with an intended release date of November 17th. In addition to the sixteen track album, the band will also be embarking on a headlining tour across the United States of America this coming spring, including a performance at Slam Dunk Festival 2024.

Berkley, California natives, Mom Jeans, are an indie-rock band formed in 2014 at UC Berkeley by drummer Austin Carango and lead singer Eric Butler. The two members still remain apart of the band alongside Bart Thompson on guitar and Sam Kless on bass. Mom Jeans self-released their debut album, Best Buds, in the summer of 2016 first as a cassette tape by Fourth Row Records. Soon after, the group signed to Counter Intuitive Records who additionally released a vinyl version of Best Buds. To date, Best Buds is a beloved album in the alternative rock scene and easily the most successful of the bands discography, with leading track "Death Cup" sitting at #1 on streaming platforms totaling 38,000,000 streams! In 2017, Mom Jeans began partnering with other artists in the industry for split-EPs including features from Graduating Life, Pictures of Vernon, and Prince Daddy & The Hyena.

For the bands fourth upcoming release, Bear Market, the musicians are revisiting fan favorites in eloquent acoustic renditions. Even so, Bear Market is far from your standard collection of older songs being re-done acoustically, Mom Jeans approached their new record with the same level of detail and intention they've exhibited with previous projects. The result is sixteen brilliant tracks perfect for closing out the fall season with. The track list is jam-packed with rocking, fun, and thoughtful remakes that reflect the strength of the bands' songwriting, which translates seamlessly across genres. The album will be entirely self-released with a vinyl option only available at upcoming shows on their forthcoming United States tour beginning on March 1st of 2024. If you're planning on attending the tour, the band is currently offering VIP packages which include the limited-edition vinyl in three aesthetic variations, otherwise only 50 vinyl's will be in stock at each show making the item truly a collectible.

Lead singer and founding member Eric Butler believes, "people should really hear this stuff," with an unwavering smile. "We had all these great songs lying around and we figured we might as well re-record them."

Fans are already taking these tracks personally, "These reimagined songs are gonna be perfect to roll one up and play with my dog in the backyard to," jokes a fan on reddit. Another under the same thread claims "I feel like they are almost the new Weezer."

As of today, November 17th, 2023, Bear Market has officially been released on Youtube for the public to digest. In addition to the sixteen mastered productions, the band has also released two coinciding music videos for "40 Hands" and "Alameda County Fair." As someone who discovered Mom Jeans during their Best Buds area, Bear Market is a refreshing new release and one I will definitely be playing on repeat through the winter.
