The Tearaways get ready to tour the UK for the 14th straight year in support of their new record “We Grew Up On AM Radio”. The sixth release in five years, this record features Little Steven Van Zandt’s Coolest Song in the World “The Wrecking Crew” along with “Hey Judas”, “Sweet Sounds Of Summer” featuring Ron Dante from The Archies and “Manchester Girl”. With Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Member and Blondie founder Clem Burke on Drums, the Tearaways continue to draw crowds from their homes in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles to places as far away as London, Dublin and Liverpool. The Tearaways have become one of the longest-lasting and most respected Santa Barbara bands, recording several independent releases, performing at both private and public gigs around the world and garnering a slew of fans and favourable reviews.
Longtime fans of Hofner, the band uses Hofner Basses and Hofner Guitars both in the studio and during live performances.
