Adeline Records today announced that it would release The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore, a new music compilation featuring songs written exclusively for the compilation by some of the best and brightest bands in punk rock, on May 29, 2012.  

“When Billie Joe asked me to put together this compilation, my first reaction was to say, ‘Absolutely not.’   I was too busy with other projects, and besides, I’d been saying for years that I was done with the music business, that people should take me out and shoot me if I ever showed any sign of wanting to get back into it,” said Livermore.   “But then I realized that this was an opportunity to do for a whole new crop of bands what we’d been able to accomplish at Lookout back in the 80s and 90s, which was to bring exciting and passionate music to the attention of a public that might otherwise never get to hear it.   Once I thought about it in that light, it was impossible to say no.”
