Pepper’s Album Premiere via ESPN

Pepper’s Album Premiere via ESPN

We all know Pepper’s long awaited, 12 track, self-titled album will officially drop, this Tuesday, September 3rd via Island Def Jam Records & Law Records. The official premiere of the album is actually taking place TODAY via ESPN’s X Games.

This is also X Games Scene’s first ever album premiere, which is fitting that the premiere is with Pepper, an X Games favorite. You can stream the entire album, RIGHT NOW by clicking HERE!.

After streaming the album, feel free to pre-order it ahead of Tuesday’s world wide release. Those that do pre-order the album will get an advance download of their new song “Hunny Girl”. You can pre-order the album by clicking HERE!

“It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever done as a band to make this record,” says guitarist/vocalist Kaleo Wassman, “It speaks loudly and widely to a broader audience while maintaining everything good about the band.”

Drummer, Yesod Williams, sums it up by saying, “I think it’s an album that can appeal to everyone, as well. We’ve been pigeonholed in the past so this is an opportunity to transcend all that and spread our wings even wider.”

If you plan on getting the album anyway, you mine as well pre-order to have an early copy of the song “Hunny Girl”. Describing the song, drummer Yesod Williams tells The Pier “…It’s just about that ‘Hunny’ that keeps you coming back for more. It could really be a person, place or thing. ‘Hunny’ has turned into a noun people! Yeeeeeeeew!

More than that, Yesod tells The Pier …”It was the most spontaneously written song on the album. Instead of having some kind of a vision, it was more of a, ‘lets just try and pull something from thin air’. A bit of a meditation if you will!”

Enjoy the album stream and starting next week, Pepper will be hitting the road to promote their new release. Check the tour dates below as they’ll be sharing the road with RDGLDGRN &

Watch: Pepper – “FKARND (All Night)”
Directed by Josh Hegard, here is the official music video to Pepper’s new single “FKARND (All Night)”. When we asked drummer Yesod Williams about the new video, he explained: “It’s really just straight fun, fucking around in all types of super classy/sexy ways! The original concept came from the director and we just let him run with it. We really loved his simple amazingly wet vision for the visual of the single. And not to mention his amazing crew who put so much passion into the project”. Enjoy the video & stay tuned for more updates on Pepper…
