California punk rock pioneers Pennywise will release their 10th studio album, All or Nothing, on April 27 via Epitaph Records.

All or Nothing is the veteran punk band’s first release with new singer Zoli Téglás (Ignite), who stepped in for already-booked live dates in 2009 when longtime vocalist Jim Lindberg was unable to make the shows due to documentary-making commitments. A few months later Lindberg announced his resignation and Téglás was brought on board permanently.

This writer spoke to guitarist Fletcher Dragge last week, who said the All or Nothing recording sessions were not without their dramas and arguments, but that things are far more amiable than they were when Lindberg was around.

In addition to continuing to work with Orange County hardcore punk band Ignite, Téglás has filled in on vocals for The Misfits, collaborated with Motörhead, and is head volunteer for Pacific Wildlife Project, rescuing and taking pelicans and other sea birds to a rehabilitation hospital. Teglas also is the volunteer music and outreach coordinator for Sea Shepherd.

Epitaph Records is the legendary punk label owned by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz.
