This Is The Sonics is the first new material recorded by the legendary 60’s garage Seattle band in over half a century. A strong set of loud, raw, mischievous, and particularly energetic tracks driven by their vocalists, Jerry Roslie and newcomer Freddie Dennis, who screams his lungs out every chance he gets.
