More Info:

In May 2019, the Stray Cats released their first new studio album in 26 years titled "40" in honor of the band’s 40th anniversary. Brian Setzer (guitar, vocals), Lee Rocker (bass, vocals) and Slim Jim Phantom (drums, vocals) — original founding members of the iconic and acclaimed American rock and roll trio — returned with brand new songs recorded in Nashville and produced by Peter Collins (Rush, Bon Jovi) and engineered by Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White). 

“Forty years ago, us three teenagers started a little band to play a musical style that had long since
passed, and most folks had never heard of, this Rockabilly music. Forty years later we stand together
and still get that same thrill and exhilaration from the music. That feeling is what makes the fireworks go off and the sparks fly. It makes the world go around.” — Brian Setzer

“Making a new Stray Cats album for 2019 in Nashville seems like the exact right thing, right time, right
place, and right band for the gig! We have an album’s worth of new songs that are classic rockabilly
while keeping the music and style current and fresh, like always. In other words...A Stray Cats album." — Slim Jim Phantom

“They say history repeats itself and I now know that’s true. 40 years after Brian, Jim and I formed the
Stray Cats, we are back! I’m so excited to be in the studio with my brothers. I can tell you that this will
be the best Stray Cats album we have ever made. The time is right, the songs are great and we’re ready to rock.” — Lee Rocker
