The Bouncing Souls – “Writing On The Wall”

New Jersey veterans the Bouncing Souls have spent the past quarter-century or so making husky-voiced, frill-free singalongs. They’re gong to release a new album called Simplicity later this month, and they announced the album with the awesomely rousing “Up To Us.” And now we get to hear another song from the album. It’s a big, chunky rager called “Writing On The Wall,” and it’s exactly the sort of monster-chorus pummeler these guys made their name cranking out. Below, listen to it and check out the band’s touring plans.
