POP-ROCK and punk bands of the 90s are making a comeback in 2013.
So far, Blink 182, Linkin Park and Offspring have conjured memories of bad hair styles, boundless energy and immaturity at the recent Soundwave music festival.
It's now California's Smash Mouth who will be bringing their notable teen flick songs and tasteful Hawaiian shirts to Rooty Hill RSL on Friday, March 15.
They will be singing the songs that made them famous such as All Star and Walkin' on the Sun, as well as new songs from their latest album Magic.
The album includes 11 songs and stays true to the traditional Smash Mouth sound, which includes a combination of ska, surf rock, pop, new wave, rap and punk.
"It's along the lines of most of our other records," said singer Steven Scott Harwell.
"It's very California in a can, pop-rock, fun in the sun music."
It's been six years since the group released new material.
Harwell said the group needed a break from writing after touring non-stop.
"There were several different dynamics going on with each individual in the group," he said.
"It felt like it was time to get some music out to our fans and we're very happy with the record."
On the verge of their Aussie tour, the group has already started working on new songs.
"Our bass player Paul came into the studio a few weeks back with a great idea for a song so we recorded it," Harwell said.
"We will probably make a video for it and just put it out there within the next couple of months.
"That said, we intend to promote the Magic album at least for the rest of the year as we have several big tours lined up on the horizon."
