Descendents have shared another new track from their upcoming album 9th And Walnut, set for release on July 23.

“Like The Way I Know” follows the release of “Baby Doncha Know” in early May and “Nightage” a month later. Drummer and founding member Bill Stevenson explained in a press statement that “Like The Way I Know” was “one of the very first Descendents songs”.

“[It was] written in 1977 by [founding member] David Nolte, about how living in Hermosa Beach made him feel like a freak,” said Stephenson.

As announced in May 2021, 9th And Walnut will finally unearth a project that began in 2002. Having undergone multiple line-up changes since forming in 1977, the band’s first established line-up reunited to record their earliest-known material. The project was completed last year, with vocalist Milo Aukerman recording new vocals from his home.

The current line-up of DescendentsAukerman, Stephenson, guitarist Stephen Edgerton and bassist Karl Alvarez – are set to return to the stage next month on a North American tour with Rise Against. The band will also play a string of headlining dates in August, followed by an appearance at the three-day Punk Rock Bowling Festival in September.
