Cheap Trick have announced that they’ll release a Christmas album next month.

Titled Christmas Christmas, it’ll arrive on October 20 via Big Machine Records and comes just months after they launched their 18th studio album We’re All Alright, which arrived in June.

Cheap Trick co-produced the record with Julian Raymond and will feature original tracks and covers, including songs by the Kinks, Wizzard, Slade, the Ramones and Chuck Berry.

The band have opened a PledgeMusic pre-order campaign, where fans can get their hands on exclusive merchandise, including a Christmas bundle which includes a hat, jumper, scarf and Christmas stocking.

Cheap Trick are currently on the road across North America, with Icon Versus Icon reporting that the band will play several Christmas concerts, with details to be revealed in due course.
