Neighborhood Brats is a California punk band formed in 2010 by vocalist Jenny Angelillo and guitarist George Rager. Originally based in San Francisco, Rager and Angelillo relocated frequently around and between northern and southern California during the band’s formative years.
In 2013, publicity, positive reviews, and regional US touring attracted enough attention for the band to begin touring Europe, which would become a mainstay for the band’s road activity. By the end of 2019, the band had completed five European tours, and multiple headlining and direct support tours throughout the United States and Canada.
In 2021, Neighborhood Brats will release their third LP, Confines of Life, which was recorded in 2020 as Los Angeles shut down in response to the incoming pandemic. The album will be released on May 28th via Dirt Cult Records in the US and Taken By Surprise Records in Europe.
Early praise for “Confines of Life”:
“…an anthemic, catchy ripper that kinda sounds like a cross between Sleater-Kinney and ’77 punk.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“…(Confines of Life) is their strongest collection yet. I’ve been playing the fuck out of it since being sent an advance link a few weeks back.” – No Echo
“…a beautiful brutal punk symphony of rage!” – Cvlt Nation
