Teens in Trouble, the brainchild of Lizzie Killian, is set to unleash their debut album, "What's Mine," on March 29 via Asian Man Records. Known for their infectious hooks, heavy guitars, and straightforward lyrics, Teens in Trouble channels the energy of bands like PUP, Hard Girls, Beach Bunny, Cheekface, and Momma. The album kicks off with the fiery "You Don't Want To Mess With Me," featuring guest vocals and guitar from PUP's Stefan Babcock, setting the stage for an arena-sized rock experience.
The latest single, "Playlist," is a nostalgic journey through the music that holds sentimental value for listeners. The accompanying video, produced by Lizzie and edited by Ajapopfilms, showcases her personal record collection and submissions from artists like Mike Park, Jake Margo, Lucy Giles, and more.
In the studio, Killian collaborated with producer Randy Moore, along with heavy hitters Henry Chadwick and Mike Huguenor. The result is a 10-track album filled with spiraling guitars, hard-driving drums, groovy basslines, and sunnier pop melodies. Killian's passionate vocals tie everything together, creating a confident and complete sound.
Teens in Trouble's music blends anthemic, emotionally charged indie-rock reminiscent of Weezer's confessional style with the Pixies' fuzzed-out melodies. Originally a California native, Killian moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2019, and during the pandemic, she crafted Teens in Trouble's debut EP, earning recognition from Alternative Press, BrooklynVegan, Consequence, and Stereogum. Two singles from the EP, "I’m Not Worried” and “Decomposing,” even made their way into the popular game Fortnite.
With "What's Mine" on the horizon, Teens in Trouble is poised to captivate audiences with their dynamic and emotionally resonant rock sound. Whether you want to rock out or shed a tear, Teens in Trouble delivers a musical experience that encompasses both.
