Teen Suicide – “Greatest Trick” & “Sycamore”

Teen Suicide released their sorta-comeback LP It’s The Big Joyous Celebration, Let’s Stir The Honeypot earlier this year, and they’re back today with two new tracks that “can’t be on our upcoming album because they don’t fit anymore stylistically or sonically” in advance of their upcoming tour alongside Elvis Depressedly and Nicole Dollanganger. “Greatest Trick” and “Sycamore” (which was co-written by Caroline White, who just put out a great song under her own Infinity Crush project yesterday) are in the same vein as the scrappy lo-fi rock that the band’s been putting out since their inception. Check both tracks out along with some words from the group (who say they are finally changing their name soon) below.

Two tracks that can’t be on our upcoming album because they don’t fit anymore stylistically or sonically.
We love these tracks & so does our label but they no longer have a home
so
to celebrate our final tour under the horrible, juvenile, and problematic name “Teen Suicide” (sorry) we are releasing these now for free/pay what you want
hope you like them too, and please come see us on tour if you wanna!
they are here under the less problematic name “The World’s Greatest, for all you itunes nerds, but if it goes on spotify it’ll probably be the problematic name, (Teen Suicide), while we figure out what to actually name our new band. Also feel free to rename these as “Hot Sloppy Joe Boys” if you wanna

Both Songs written & recorded by SAM RAY, with part of sycamore co-written / recorded by CAROLINE WHITE

FREE/PAY WHAT YOU WANT DOWNLOAD
ALL $$ ON THESE WILL GO TOWARDS TOUR EXPENSES & LITERAL SH*T LIKE THAT, SO IF YOU FEEL LIKE DONATING (THANK YOU) YOU KNOW WHERE YOU’RE MONEY IS GOING. GOING TO GAS, AND STAYING AT HOWARD JOHNSONS & SHIT INSTEAD OF THE TRAVELODGE
