In 2019, The Stray Cats embarked on a very special tour to commemorate their 40th anniversary as a band — and on Sept. 11, a new live album taken from the performances will be released via Surfdog Records.

Rocked This Town: From LA to London was produced by the band’s Brian Setzer (guitars/vocals), Lee Rocker (bass) and Slim Jim Phantom (drummer) and was mixed by Vance Powell. Here’s the live record’s trailer:

The live record features run-throughs of many of the Stray Cats’ iconic hits, as well as selections from the band’s 2019 album 40 — the group’s first new album in 26 years up to that point. Click here to purchase a copy of 40. 

In late 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, Setzer cancelled his scheduled Christmas tour due to “severe tinnitus,” issuing a statement to fans:

“It’s heartbreaking to disappoint my fans who have shared my Christmas seasons with me for over fifteen years. I’m truly sorry for the inconvenience this has caused all of the amazing people who make my tour happen and to my unbelievably loyal and devoted fans.  I hate to let you down and I hope you’ll understand.”

Unless that has remedied itself in the months since, it may be a while before Setzer (and/or the Stray Cats) can perform live again (once the pandemic subsides enough to allow live concerts, of course).
