The Skinny: UnWed recently announced their debut LP, Raise the Kids (out April 14th via 6131 Records) and now the band has returned with a new track and set of shows around the release. The band, consisting of Neltie, Arty Shepherd, Jason Black, Matthew Kane, and Jeff Gensterblum, has also unveiled a track from the album – listen to “Raise the Kids” above.

Following the release of their debut EP via No Idea Records, UnWed set out to write and record their first proper full-length. The quintet teamed with an accomplished group of engineers, including Paul Leavitt, Ryan Jones, Brian McTernan, Will Beasley, and Travis Bacon, each with considerable resumes of their own. The end result, entitled Raise The Kids, captures a band bridging the gaps between hard rock, anthemic punk, and alternative with splendid precision.

04/19 – Pittsburgh, PA – Mr Roboto
