Today, Long Beach trio Tijuana Panthers are announcing their brand new album coming at the end of the summer. POSTER will arrive on August 28th, right in time to reflect on this summer and summers past. Along with the album announcement, the band is also sharing a new music video for their single “Front Window Down.” About the song, the Panthers told The FADER: “Front Window Down” is being a young backseat passenger. No control of the cold air, the smoke or the night’s direction. Yet, happy to be out of the house and on your own.”
The band is also setting off on a European tour next month which includes a multitude of festival dates and stops in The Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, and Italy. Stay tuned for news about the band touring in North America and more music from POSTER coming soon. Check out the video for “Front Window Down” and check out full tour and album details below.

More about Tijuana Panthers and POSTER:
The Tijuana Panthers are from Long Beach, a great band, staring at the sea, staring at the sand… POSTER is their latest album.
POSTER? As in Post Punk? Post Surf? Post Cowpunk? How about post any wave that has come and gone and will come back and go again? Post all that. How about putting the ‘post’ back in posterity? POSTER is another great record by the TijuanaPanthers! Not just for posterity’s sake – for RIGHT NOW!
Earlier Tijuana Panthers albums were urgent – as if cranking out the hits was objective number one. They cranked out the hits and they did it true. From point A to point B. But POSTER is the Tijuana Panthers now, at their most confident and present minded. They have arrived. They’ve stepped out of the past or future and into the now. Go back if you must to revisit the hits, but POSTER is now, I say! There is no longer a race against time.
On this album the hit feeling is all around you. They are exploring the time and space of that feeling. Sounds come and go, maybe to return, maybe not. This is the Tijuana Panthers freed from the tried and true structure. They have freed themselves only to be trapped again and again, in this moment, making noise, stretching out, letting odds and ends fall where they may. After all, this album was recorded in just two days! No time for fallacy! No time for façade! POSTER is but a moment to be lived and continually re-lived! What else do we have? Truth itself?! All I know – and can ever know – is this moment now, POSTER, apartment windows opening and closing, lyrics passing like ads on buses, tones swelling and crashing through breezeways…
