Drunk Dynasty is the tenth studio album by American rock band Bowling for Soup, released on October 14, 2016.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11] The album was initially intended to be a 6-8 song EP but over the time spent in the studio recording there were still songs leftover so the band decided to release a full length album instead.

It is the final studio album to feature bass guitarist Erik Chandler before his official departure on January 12, 2019.[citation needed]
