This album also welcomes the band's new guitarist Frank Agnew (The Adolecents, T.S.O.L.), who is one of the architects of the California punk scene in the 1980s. This new album feature eleven tracks, beginning with the album's lead single "Down With Commonwealth," which hits you like a bolt of energy. Blazing guitar riffs and a high-powered steady drum line is the perfect recipe to attach this music to your summer song playlist. The album continues with the big guitar sound and rock 'n' roll piano work of "Feel Alright," along with the classic punk chugging rhythm of "Tijuana Jail." Greg Antista & The Lonely Streets turn it up to eleven with the sing-along anthem of "Together Tonight," before showcasing their softer side with the acoustic strumming opening of "Unfinished Business," which turns out to be a great punk/blues number. The band wrap up their new album with the nostalgic punk sounds of "Broken Glass" and the raw, burning power ballad closer "Carmelita (Warren Does Warren)."

Rock and roll vocalist Ellen Foley is preparing to release her first set of new music in eight years. Her new album titled "Fighting Words" will be released on August 6th through Urban Noise Music.

On her new album, Ellen Foley has assembled a top-notch list of musicians to back her up on her new eleven-track release. She kicks things off with the straight-up rocker "Are You Good Enough," which showcases an edginess to Foley's delivery, before adding a bit of a punk-attitude to her sound with "I'm Just Happy To Be Here." Next, she moves on to the mellow blues of "Be Nice" and the country-style harmonies of "I Call My Pain By Your Name." Ellen Foley revisits her rock side with the southern swagger of "I'll Be True," before displaying her stellar vocals on the gentle ballad "Fill Your Cup."
