Cleveland punk act The Pagans originally kicked around Northeast Ohio from 1977 to 1979, briefly reformed in 1982, and then pretty much disappeared for the next 25 years. Now, the group is back under the guidance of frontman and author Mike Hudson. Below, A.V. Club readers can stream Hollywood High, the group’s first new album in nearly 25 years. Standout tracks include “Fame Whore,” about Hudson’s muse and “Riot” Hyatt House icon Evita Corby, and “I Wanna Date,” the record’s ecstatic opening cut.
Hollywood High is out Nov. 4 via Ruin Discos.
