Toronto, ON-based post-punks Teenanger has recently unveiled the brand new single “Touching Glass”, which is the first song to come off of their forthcoming sixth album Good Time, it’s set to be coming out on October 2nd via Telephone Explosion Records.
“Touching Glass”, the album’s first single, splices the group’s more strident post-punk aesthetic with a new pop-focused approach, filled with chugging guitar riffs and arresting melodies. Although showing lighter sounds than with their previous releases, Good Time and “Touching Glass” refuse to shy away from the band’s ear for social commentary and wish to weigh in on contemporary issues.
Speaking about the new track, Melissa Ball of the band says:
“I was thinking about John Carpenter’s 1988 classic “They Live” (starring Roddy Piper) before I wrote these lyrics so I guess I had that plot in the back of my mind. It’s pretty straight forward lyrically and partly about the fear of mind control and my frustrations with being tethered to/tired with my phone.”

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
