NYC Album Release Show July 30 @ Irving Plaza

Hear New Song “Apocalypse Kids” on Vice / Noisey

D Generation – Jesse Malin, Danny Sage, Howie Pyro, Richard Bacchus and Michael Wildwood – is widely regarded as one of the most important and unsung rock ‘n’ roll bands of the past 25 years. On July 29, these five childhood friends will release Nothing Is Anywhere (Bastard Basement Records), their first album in 17 years. The band will return to Irving Plaza in NYC on July 30 (tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here), for a hometown record release show, with additional tour dates to follow.

Produced by guitarist Danny Sage, Nothing Is Anywhere is a first-or-second-take album, recorded in basements under Avenue A and the Magic Shop in NYC. “We’ve finally made a record that represents us,” says Sage. “We make a really good noise on stage, and this album is a little more snotty, nasty. The needles are in the red a bit more.”

In the bombed-out warehouses of early-90s Brooklyn, D Generation formed as a reaction to the culture. “We decided to do another record because we still have a fire under us,” says Jesse. “The world is even more full of shit than it was when we were in our 20s. One digitally connected highway of invasion and disposableness, burning through the planet and time.” Nothing Is Anywhere became an escape, both a continuation of their lives and a way to remember where they came from.

On the autobiographical “Apocalypse Kids,” D Generation might have summed up their story in four lines: slip through the cracks like a criminal / lost in a packet full of chemicals / from ‪7th Street‬‬‬‬‬‬ to The New York Times.

“We grew up together as misfits who always turned towards music as an escape and a way out,” says Jesse. “We always had each other.“ Check out the new song “Apocalypse Kids” here.

“Bands should be a gang, a brotherhood,” adds Malin, who began playing music with Danny in Queens at age of 13. “We’ve all known each other forever,” says Sage. “We’re like a weird family that you can never leave, but somehow it all makes sense.”

Nothing Is Anywhere tracklist:
“Queens of A”
“Lonely Ones”

“21st Century Blues”
“Dance Hall Daze”

D Generation Confirms New Album This Summer
20th Anniversary Performance of No Lunch May 6
@ The Studio at Webster Hall

NYC Album Release Show July 30 @ Irving Plaza
D Generation needs no introduction. Often credited for keeping NYC punk rock alive in the ’90s, these five friends with unmistakable chemistry are widely regarded as one of the most important and unsung rock ‘n’ roll bands of the past twenty-five years.

Before they’d ever been signed, D Gen played sell-out concerts at such seminal New York City venues as CBGB, the Continental and Irving Plaza. Gear was trashed, bottles broken, authorities called, venues shut down, record execs turned away… but the lucky few hundred who were at these gigs were instant converts. A “scene” was born.

Now the classic D Gen lineup – Jesse Malin, Danny Sage, Howie Pyro, Michael Wildwood and Richard Bacchus – is putting the finishing touches on a brand new album. Recorded under Avenue A and on Rivington Street, D Generation remains connected to their NYC home and wouldn’t want it any other way. Produced by Danny Sage, the record will be out this summer on the band’s own Bastard Basement Records via distribution from MRI / RED, with a hometown record release show confirmed for July 30 at Irving Plaza in NYC. Tickets will go on sale this Friday March 4 at 10am EST.

Diehards who want to see the band sooner can check out their performance on May 6 at the Studio at Webster Hall in NYC (as part of The Grid festival), where D Generation will give a rare performance of No Lunch in it’s entirety to honor the seminal album’s 20th anniversary. It’s a tribute to the anthems that first put D Gen on the international map. “There is no better sales pitch for the snot-rock classicism and teenage-warfare spirit of D Generation than [the song] ‘No Way Out,’” writes David Fricke for Rolling Stone, who hails the song a “stone classic.”

“New York punk that takes the best of the ’70s Street-rat sneers, tight black pants and artfully messed-up hairdos: D Generation are the stuff that popped-up 70s punk was made of…. tailor-made for grimy pinball arcades and Brand X beer-drinking binges.”
