The Old-timers new release “Old Dogs New Tricks”, will be out on February 1, 2017.

Why is this so special you ask? Well, since the very first “Punkaholics Anonymous Show” went on air, back in September of 2013, there are a few dozen bands which we featured on our broadcasts, that we still follow today, not just because of their talent music wise, but also for their easy approach. The Old Timers are one such band.

But let’s talk about the new album, “Old Dogs New Tricks”.

We spoke to Donovan de Necker, guitarist and asked him if this was a “farewell and see you soon” from the trio:

“I am not aware if this is about farewell, or see you soon. We have a lot of singles and great music that were released as singles or found on our records, and we thought it would be great to put all those tracks together as one release, in a sort of best of manner for people to enjoy, its a nice retrospect of our music and growth.

He added:

David Emmerson, our vocalist, who is the big Kahuna behind Zap Records was mostly the brains behind this release. I think the songs beautifully capture the years of the Old-Timers up to now, spiritually, musically and even from a production point of view. The songs on here are a wonderful compilation of the growth of The Old-Timers, and one gets to experience that from our beginnings up to where we are today.”

Regarding plans for the future:

We will see, for now we are working on other projects and busy with life in general. The whole thing started out of fun, who would think that fun would go on for six years. We all have our own priorities and responsibilities to attend, whether family or other, making music is a privilege we have been able to share with others. We are hoping people will enjoy this compilation / retrospect of our career up to now, certainly we believe its our best stuff.
