Los Angeles punks The Linda Lindas have announced details of their debut album Growing Up, and shared the awesome title-track.

The record as a whole is due out digitally on April 8 and physically on June 3 via Epitaph, with the band celebrating the announcement by performing on The Late Show With James Corden this week (stay tuned for that). On top of that, they've released the official video for Growing Up (the song), with director Humberto Leon enthusing: "Directing my first video for The Linda Lindas was a dream come true because I love the message and voice the girls have, and I am a true fan.

"I was really inspired by the girl’s love of cats and wanted to take that to the next level and so the video is a conversation about turning points in their lives all being viewed through the gaze of their cats. It creates a narrative of whether the cats want to trade places with the girls or vice-a-versa.This video was extra special because I worked with the girls on designing the outfits with Batsheva, styling the looks with Rodarte and Warby Parker. The entire video was a collaboration between me and the girls. By shooting the video on iPhone 13 Pro Max, it created an intimacy with the video that felt like we were listening in on a day in the life of The Linda Lindas."
