Bay Area CA’s Ceremony are back with their third, most unpredictable full-length album to-date, Rohnert Park, and cover art has been unveiled for the first time. Named after a town in California that the band grew up in, Rohnert Park showcases Ceremony at their finest as they mix influences like Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Fucked Up and The Stooges to present their best material yet. This new album is equal parts aggressive, incendiary and, dare we say it, catchy. Don’t let that fool you, though; Ceremony’s trademark pissed off punk stomp is apparent on Rohnert Park and vocalist Ross Farrar’s lyrics and delivery are as fiery as ever. Recorded this past winter in Oakland, CA with Dan Rathbun (Tragedy, From Ashes Rise), Rohnert Park is unsafe, noisy, dynamic and most importantly, impressive. This record will cement Ceremony as one of the most destructive and meaningful bands that punk and hardcore has seen in years.

In preparation of their summer release, Ceremony will be playing a string of shows in California alongside Bane, the Circle Jerks and more, before heading to Asia with label-mates Cruel Hand. Tour dates and Rohnert Park artwork can be found below. Look for Rohnert Park in stores on June 8th from Bridge Nine Records and prepare to hear new music from ‘the best current band in hardcore punk’ (AMP Magazine) soon.
