The outfit's new single will appear on Saddest Summer, out July 14. 

Queer Brooklyn brand Teen Vice is preparing to release its debut album, Saddest Summer, due out July 14. Drenched in wild guitar-rock, the outfit's blazing new single, "Anti-Privilege," is a taste of the forthcoming 11-track LP, with its charged subject matter and aggressive '90s production that recalls Hole's Live Through This era.

Helmed by queer guitarist Tammy Hart (who previously spelled her name Tami Hart), Teen Vice was created with Joshua Ackley (bass, vocals), May Dantas (guitars, vocals) and Derek Pippin (drums). Hart's career has long been rooted in punk, having performed in the Kathleen Hanna-produced group Winning Looks, Making Friendz, GangWay! and JD Samson's MEN. Ackley, who also identifies as queer, comes from The Dead Betties alongside Pippin, and Dantas from The Fingerprints, which became known in South America for its explosive, anti music.

With their collective musical backgrounds, Teen Vice is well-rounded and notably authentic--a welcomed force in New York's queer punk scene, opening for everyone from rock legends Pansy Division to Riot Grrrl band, The Red Aunts. Listen to "Anti-Privilege," below, off Commission Music.
