Tim Armstrong and Jesse Michaels unveil their new project Bad Optix with the release of debut single Raid.

Their first venture together since the short-but-sweet run of Operation Ivy, they are also joined by drummer Joey Castillo (Circle Jerks, The Bronx) and bassist Spencer Pollard (Trash Talk). The new track kicks off the Hellcat Singles Club: a collection of new releases by a variety of bands curated by Armstrong and the Hellcat team.

Speaking to the creative process Michaels says:

Like many of the tracks we have worked on, I heard the music and wrote the lyrics very quickly, almost on the spot. This was only the second song we did but it felt hot immediately and just flowed so we thought it would be a good way to introduce the new band to the world.
