Naked Raygun returns to studio for 7 inch series

nr Legendary Chicago punkers Naked Raygun recently announced their first trip into a recording studio in over a decade. In two weeks the band is set to enter Transient Sound Studios in Chicago, Illinois to lay down tracks that will eventually be pressed on a series of 7” records. These songs represent the first new material written by the band since 1992 and their first recordings since 1997.  Naked Raygun holds the distinction of being the longest running of Chicago’s punk scene.  The band broke up in 1992 and save for a one-off reunion in 1997 to celebrate the release of the Last of the Demohicans collection, stayed inactive while band members tended to family business and occasionally other musical projects such as The Bomb and Pegboy.  In the fall of 2006 drummer Eric Spicer began to gather the guys together again to reunite for Riot Fest in Chicago.  The sold out crowd of four thousand prompted Naked Raygun to re-form permanently with their final lineup of Spicer, Bill Stephens on guitar, Pierre Kezdy on bass and Jeff Pezzati on vocals.

Having recently debuted their first  two new songs in years, they will no doubt appear on the upcoming 7” series the band has planned for Riot Fest Records. Tentative plans for the start of the series have been set for Fall 2009. Once the 7” series ends Naked Raygun plans to hole up in their rehearsal space for a while then re-enter the recording studio to track their first proper LP since 1990’s Raygun, Naked Raygun.
