TEENAGE TIME KILLERS Feat. DAVE GROHL, COREY TAYLOR, RANDY BLYTHE: 'Greatest Hits Vol. 1' Due In July
April 21, 2015
Following months of speculation, anticipation and outright misinformation, a July 31 release date has been set for TEENAGE TIME KILLERS' "Greatest Hits Vol. 1" on Rise Records. Pre-orders being taken now via iTunes include the instant grat track "Hung Out To Dry", which you can preview below.
The long-gestating brainchild of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY founder/drummer Reed Mullin, guitarist Mick Murphy (MY RUIN, THE BIRDS OF SATAN) and producer John "Lou" Lousteau, TEENAGE TIME KILLERS' "Greatest Hits Vol. 1" is 20 concise seismic shocks created by an all-star line up of punk and metal legends spanning decades. Joining Reed on drums and Mick on guitar on the album's 20 mostly original tracks and few covers of underground classics (including the RUDIMENTARY PENI deep cut that inspired the project's title) includes:
* Jello Biafra of DEAD KENNEDYS * Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD * Dave Grohl and Pat Smear of FOO FIGHTERS * Nick Oliveri * Matt Skiba of ALKALINE TRIO * Corey Taylor of SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR * Tommy Victor of PRONG and DANZIG * Lee Ving of FEAR * Mike "IX" Williams of EYEHATEGOD * Mike Dean and Woody Weatherman of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY * Karl Agell of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY * Phil Rind of SACRED REICH * Neil Fallon of CLUTCH
All instrumental tracks on "Greatest Hits Vol. 1" were recorded at Grohl's 606 Studios in Northridge, California. The album was produced by John "Lou" Lousteau, Reed Mullin and Mick Murphy, engineered and mixed by John "Lou" Lousteau at 606.

Asked if there are any plans for TEENAGE TIME KILLER to go on the road in support of the upcoming CD, Mullin told INDY Week: "Touring, I don't know. Dave Grohl's folks — his management and marketing people — are going to help us do all that with the thing. We recorded about 98 percent of it at his studio. They were talking about — since there's so many people from so many different bands — maybe do something like '[Jimmy] Kimmel [Live!]' and have three or four different singers come out at one time, like Jello and Lee Ving, maybe Randy from LAMB OF GOD, something like that. All the songs are real short, so we could do, easily, four songs and not go over. But you know, we'd have Brian Baker come out and play guitar, Pat Smear play bass or guitar or whatever. It's pretty star-studded."
He added: "It sounds really organic. It sounds like we — the people that we associated with for the different songs — wrote the songs together."
Back in May 2013, Blythe posted an Instagram photo of him with Dean and Mullin in the studio and described his contribution to TEENAGE TIME KILLER, a track called "Hung Out To Dry", as "old-school C.O.C.-style thrash punk."
