Charger have released a new 12" single on Pirates Press Records, a UV digitally printed vinyl with pristine artwork on the record itself, a new type of picture disc from Pirates Press.

In addition to the new material, the band will play a few California dates with Old Firm Casuals to close out the year, uniting to Rancid-related projects on the same stage.
