Baltimore's Teen Suicide have resurrected themselves with the announcement of a new double LP, "It's the Big Joyous Celebration, Let's Stir the Honeypot", out April 1, 2016 on Run For Cover Records. The first for the group since 2012, Teen Suicide began as the solo project of Sam Ray with a rotating cast of musicians but has since morphed into a full band. It's also, according to the band, their final record.

Recorded over fourteen months with a Robert Altman-sized group of collaborators and performers, it’s both a skeleton key for the band’s earlier work and a great corrective addition to it. Updating rather than refuting all of the past themes and styles of their revered first LP "i will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body" and numerous EPs, "Big Joyous Celebration..." shifts between punk, noise, country, house and a myriad of other electric dance genres to create something as messy, sprawling, and captivating as its mouthful of a title. Spread over twenty six tracks, there is plenty that Teen Suicide’s swansong has to say for itself in the band’s distinct, captivating, and refreshingly enjoyable voice.

Here's the video for new track "Alex":
