DOMA-nominated punk-rockers The Lash Outs, the guys who griped that "The Kids Don't Wanna Dance," continue their role as cultural commentators on this new track, "Contemporary Music."

It's one of two new tracks just posted to the band's MySpace page, and will be included on the band's upcoming album. They'll return to Tulsa in January to finish mixing and recording with Stephen Egerton of The Descendants and All, and will likely release it in Spring 2010.

You'll probably get to hear a few of the new tracks tomorrow night, when the band plays with The Uptown Bums and The Broadsiders opening for Youth Brigade at The Lounge on Elm Street.

"The new songs are a bit poppier than the stuff on our last disc," Joey Holbrook writes in an e-mail. "Think Paul Collins' Beat meets the Dickies."

Sound good? Find out after the jump...

Check out the other new track, "Life In Bed," on the band's MySpace page. So far, the new album promises to be even better than the last--and that's saying something.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
