Out July 12, Now We Are Timeless is the long-awaited return of one of indie pop’s most unique voices. 20+ years since their inception, Imperial Teen are still the four-headed beast of Jone Stebbins (The Wrecks), Will Schwartz (hey willpower), Roddy Bottum (Faith No More) & Lynn Perko Truell (Sister Double Happiness, The Dicks, The Wrecks). Each with their own unique brand of songwriting, swapping vocals & melodies in lightning flashes, their new album proves that nothing as puny as time or distance can’t stop a spark.
The band wrote and recorded the new album in the cities the individual members have geographically gravitated to: New York City, the Bay Area, Denver, and Los Angeles. The album was recorded in spurts, half in Denver & half in Los Angeles, with assistance from Mickey Petralia (John Cale, Peaches) & Anna Waronker (of That Dog), among others.
Two singles have been released thus far, a thumper in "We Do What We Do Best" & the sleepy Slumberland indie pop vibes of "Walkaway". The latter single premiered via Flood Magazine.
