LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Jim Lindberg Official Website) - With PUNK ROCK DAD (out now via Collins), veteran punk rocker JIM LINDBERG of Pennywise makes his literary debut. PUNK ROCK DAD chronicles LINDBERG's journey from growing up in Southern California listening to punk rock and embracing its anti-authority culture, to joining a band and the trials and tribulations of fatherhood.
In PUNK ROCK DAD, LINDBERG-who earned a B.A. in English from UCLA-documents his struggle to find a balance between being a positive role model and authority figure for his three young daughters while remaining true to his punk rock roots. PUNK ROCK DAD also features quotes from many of LINDBERG's "punk rock dad" friends, including Fat Mike from NOFX, Noodles from The Offspring, Tony from the Adolescents, Greg Hetson from Bad Religion
and Joey Cape from Lagwagon.
While LINDBERG focuses on fatherhood and his developing writing career, Pennywise continues to build their strong loyal fan base. Pennywise has sold over three million albums worldwide so far since forming over 19 years ago. With their unflinchingly aggressive sound, Pennywise delivers songs of anthemic self-empowerment with politically charged wake-up calls and has come to define the Southern California hardcore sound. This summer, Pennywise will be a headlining act on the Vans Warped Tour main stage for the sixth time in the tour's 13-year history.
