Ahead of the release of their latest album, veteran New York punk band The Fleshtones premiered a new single, “Remember the Ramones,” via the Wall Street Journal’s ‘Speakeasy’ blog on Thursday, January 23.

“Remember the Ramones” reminisces about the days of seeing the band and others at CBGBS while taking on a musical style similar to the Ramones’ loud and fast nature.

The Fleshtones have had a long and prosperous career, getting their start in Queens in the mid 1970s and playing clubs like CBGBs along with bands like the Ramones. According to a press release,they were the first band to ever be booked at both Irving Plaza and Maxwell’s. They have opened for legends like James Brown and Chuck Berry, and collaborated with the likes of Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Steve Albini. Since inception, the band has released over 20 albums, giving them a steady career in the underground rock scene.

Wheel of Talent,’ the band’s newest album, will be released on February 11 through Yep Roc Records.

The band has also announced tour dates to promote the album. The tour will start in Brooklyn, New York at The Grand Victory on February 27, and Brighton Bar in Long Branch, New Jersey on February 28, before circling around the country, ending in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Check out “Remember the Ramones” on Speakeasy. Tickets for the tour are on sale now. ‘Wheel of Talent’ is available for preorder here. For more information about The Fleshtones, visit the band’s Facebook page.
