Brooklyn’s Chumped has been winning the hearts this fall with the release of their latest EP That’s The Thing Is Like… earlier this month.  But today Noisey brought the excitement surrounding the band to a whole new level when they premiered a new track “Songs About Boats” from Chumped’s upcoming debut LP Teenage Retirement, out November 18 via Anchorless Records.  The site praised the upcoming record, saying “The band’s carefree-but-dedicated work ethic bleeds through on this record. It maintains everything that makes Chumped great—a commitment to perfectly crafted catchy songwriting”.

Listen to “Songs About Boats”

The self-described “bummer punk” quartet formed in Brooklyn in 2012 and began making a name for themselves in the Brooklyn DIY scene, combining 90s indie with pop punk to create songs that are energetic, reflective and just a bit gritty and sloppy in all the most endearing ways.  Their self-titled 2013 debut EP caught the attention of places such as Noisey, AV Club, Alternative Press and BrooklynVegan who were early to champion the young band and helped contribute to an ever-growing momentum and a busy 2014.  Chumped has announced new tour fall tour dates today, and will also appear at Fest 13 (all tour dates below).
