The band will lay down basic tracks and vocals at Cue Recording Studios in Falls Church, VA in late October.

GRUMPMANIA ON THE JERSEY SHORE
The Grumpy Old Punks made their trimphant stage debut at Long Branch NJ's legendary Brighton Bar in front of a sold out crowd. When the doors opened and GOP fans flooded the venue, the band was moved to the showcase spot for the evening. Following the onstage chaos, which included groupies throwing large "grannie" underpants, the quickly aging band members were treated for minor maladies including sore backs, swollen feet and that "still gotta go" feeling.
The set list included old favorites like "That's No MILF That's My Wife," "Anarchy in the Prostate," and "My Adjustable Rate Mortgage Really Sucks" as well as tunes destined for the band's new EP this Fall.
Look for another showcase gig in October. Deets forthcoming.

"We're not sure whose going to release it yet but if a bunch of crappy auto-tuned artists can get on iTunes then we can, too, "said lead singer LouB. The album, filled with lyrics inspired by "middle age punk rock rage," features songs like "Hey You Kids Get Off My Lawn, "Grumpy Old Punks," "Nose Hair Trimmer" and "Where Are My Glasses?" Another favorite is the tale of a twenty-year marriage ending when the wife leaves to do Internet porn entitled "That's No MILF That's My Wife." LouB adds, "It's not a true story…yet. However, the married guys in the band are nervously checking their computer browser histories after their wives surf the net." The album was produced by the band and mixed by Mike Landolt at Mike's Curry House Studio in Columbus, Ohio and will feature six original songs with lengths so short it clocks in at around eight minutes. Look for it in November 2011.
THE GOP HOPE TO LIVE TO SEE ALBUM RELEASE
The Grumpy Old Punks, rock star darlings of the Viagra set, are hoping to live to see the release of their self-titled debut album in late 2011. "We're not getting any younger," said guitarist KRoy. "If we don't get moving on this thing soon our first tour will double as our farewell tour. We're not a well band." The band is writing and recording when their busy schedules of daytime jobs, meaningless household tasks and endless rounds of driving their kids allow. "At this point in my life I'm hoping for two things," said singer LouB. "For this album to get recorded and a healthy bowel movement. Preferably not at exactly the same time."
