Adult Books share new song “Casual Wrecks” and announce extensive U.S. Tour

Adult Books

Adult Books have been hot on the heels of their Monday night residency at The Echo, and now the Los Angeles band has revealed a new song “Casual Wrecks” off their upcoming album.

With an alluring vocal monotone, reminiscent of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis, Adult Books really play up the post-punk aesthetic in this song. “Casual Wrecks” is the second song shared from Adult Books’ forthcoming LP, with the fist being “Suburban Girlfriend.” You can stream both tracks below.

Adult Books is set to release their debut full-length Running from the Blows on March 4th. Lolipop Records will be releasing the vinyl and Burger Records will be releasing the cassette.

The band has made quite a name for themselves in the local music scene, once repping the track-home suburbia of Orange County, and now residing in L.A., Adult Books have become a familiar name throughout the Los Angeles indie/underground music scene. The band has opened and toured for acts such as FIDLAR, Tijuana Panthers, OFF!, The Vibrators, Mike Watt, and more. Now Adult books will embark on their own hefty tour across the U.S. including dates at SXSW. View the full list of tour dates below.

Adult Books have two more FREE residency nights at The Echo on Feb. 15 and 22. Be sure to catch them while you can!
