Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers – “Please Return” (Stereogum Premiere)

Illinois-based band Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers are releasing a split EP next month with Mikey Erg of the late and great New Jersey punk band The Ergs. On it, there’s one original track from each artist and they also both cover one of each other’s songs. “Please Return” is the Warren Franklin original and it’s an invigorating and endearing throwback to the punk rock of days past, bolstered by Franklin’s sympathetic voice. Listen below.

The Mikey Erg/Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers split is out 9/16 via Count Your Lucky Stars.
