(Hed) P.E. have announced that they will be releasing their brand new studio album, which will be entitled "Class of 2020", on August 21st.

The new record is being billed as a return to the band's early sound. Frontman Jared Gomes had this to say, "We were on the road in the middle of a tour when the Covid-19 pandemic hit full force.

"Like everyone else on the planet, we were faced with some unprecedented challenges. As a small business owner of an independent band, I was faced with an additional set of challenges with the tour being canceled and making it back home from Rhode Island to Idaho.

"When I got home, I immediately got inspired creatively and hit the studio to smash out this record. For this one, we took it all back to our roots with a back-to-basics approach to try and capture that true G-Punk sound of our earlier albums."

Jared also explained the name of the record, "I had the title 'Class of 2020' as a working title for some time no. "We had made hoodies with the Class of 2020 on them, but it was originally intended to be a statement about the band being here 20 years later.

"A whole new Class of (HED) P.E., so to speak. Once the pandemic broke out, this title took on a new profound meaning. The Class of 2020 never really graduated. The Class of 2020 will go down in history for several different reasons." See the tracklisting below:

1 - First Blood
2 - Watch It Burn
3 - No Days Off
4 - Death Awaits
5 - Last Call
6 - Ole Time Sake
7 - Greedy Girl
8 - Nothing Lasts 4ever (The Ballad of C19)
9 - We The People
10 - Overdue
