Breaking News!  Release Fourth and Final 20-Year Anniversary 7-inch * Appear on Fuel TV's "The Daily Habit" Tonight!    By the end of the Bouncing Souls' set, a run of anthems from ³Old School² through ³Kids and Heroes,² fans had all but overtaken the stage: shouting into microphones, dispensing hugs and high-fives. The band had become merely a conduit, creating the space for other people's joy. - The New York Times  Their set is anthem after anthem, frontman Greg Attonito unabashedly taking pictures with fans mid-song, happily shaking hands with teenagers who will go to school tomorrow and brag about it, and amiably, if a bit distantly, tossing off songs from all of the band's eras--this is a band that still unabashedly plays "Old School" to kids who hadn't been born when that song came out. - The Village Voice  2009 has been an important and busy year for New Jersey natives, THE BOUNCING SOULS. They've celebrated 20 years of vibrant, heartfelt punk rock, with plenty of special treats for fans old and new.  It was almost 16 years ago that THE BOUNCING SOULS put out their first album on their very own Chunksaah Records, and in a true return to the DIY spirit in which they began, THE BOUNCING SOULS have self-released a new 7² every third month of 2009 on Chunksaah, now handing us their fourth and final of the year.  2009 has not only been a celebration of THE BOUNCING SOULS' 20 years as a band, but also a great big ³thank you² to all the True Believers who've joined their ranks along the way, and tonight, those fans can celebrate by watching one of punk rock's legends perform live on Fuel TV's "The Daily Habit,"  < 4DFlCQQnExepxyRuQXbjA_UCRDywyXxFBbed0WvclrlxU-rJFAbTIJGnSLcgxEtP1Va4yAgwQIih lo3sRRtni7RaEH3jKrr0Wc5lGvFM>  airing at 9pm tonight and re-airing at 12 Midnight, and 2:30pm and 5:30pm tomorrow (all times Eastern).
