The Bouncing Souls release The Gold Record
The Gold Record is the seventh full-length album from The Bouncing Souls.
It was released on June 6, 2006 which the band deemed 'the number of the release', and also deemed the album 'the release of the beast'. This is due to its release date (6/6/06), the fact that it is their sixth album of previously unreleased material, and in reference to the number of the beast (666). Despite the title, the album has not achieved Gold status.
The album includes two covers, of "Lean on Sheena" by Avoid One Thing and "Better Things" by The Kinks. "Letter from Iraq" is based around a poem sent to the band by Garett Reppenhagen, a soldier serving in Iraq.
