The Bouncing Souls' recently released its ninth album, Comet, celebrating 26 years of energetic New Jersey punk.

"We're doing it for us and them [the audience] almost as a family, it feels like. I think that's what makes The Bouncing Souls special. That's what propels us and keeps it going," says vocalist Greg Attonito. "Otherwise it's, like, why am I going to go on tour again? I've been to this place a thousand times."

The Bouncing Souls have performed in Phoenix quite a few times, and this time the band is stopping by Nile Theater with The Menzingers on Sunday, July 8.

We recently caught up with Greg Attonito to discuss crazy shows in Florida, Comet, and how "East Coast Fuck You" sometimes gets misinterpreted.
