D Generation reunites for album, tour

D Generation will return after a 17-year recording absence with its fourth studio album, Nothing Is Anywhere, via Bastard Basement Records on July 29.

The New York City garage rockers' hometown album release show is July 30 at Irving Plaza, followed by a west coast tour in August. All tickets can be purchased here.

Produced by guitarist Danny Sage, Nothing Is Anywhere reunites the classic lineup of Jesse Malin, Sage, Howie Pyro, Richard Bacchus and Michael Wildwood. It was recorded in a basement under Avenue A "fast, loud, and on our own terms," as Malin says.

He and Sage wrote most of the lyrics together, and while they often reflect on scenes and characters from their past, it's never with nostalgia. D Generation isn't out to romanticize their history or their city; they're here for the same reasons they started the band in the first place.

"We originally got together as a reaction to everything that was sick and empty out in the world," says Malin. "We thought we were pissed off in the '90s, but now it's worse then ever."

Adds Sage, “we made it through everything,” adds Sage, who’s been playing music with Malin from the age of 13. “We’re still fucking here.”
