You know that feeling when a song comes on the radio and you get to yell out, “I knew about this band first”? There’s nothing better than finding out about an amazing group, getting to introduce your new love to all of your friends, and then watching those artists get famous. Well, we’re about to have one of those moments (and now you can, too).
Introducing, Bad Suns A.K.A. the best new band on the alternative rock scene. The four man group consists of LA natives Christo Bowman, Miles Morris, Gavin Bennett, and Ray Libby. Bad Suns was founded in 2012, but just dropped their debut album, Language & Perspective, in June 2014. Their single, “Cardiac Arrest”, which is also included on the album, rose to the #15 spot on the U.S. Alternative Songs list when it debuted in 2013. And we don’t have a doubt in our minds that there will be many more hits to come.
Bad Suns has a hauntingly beautiful, yet catchy sound. Their dynamic album captures a variety of songs from the more mellow to more upbeat while always sounding distinctly them. With wonderfully crafted lyrics and an addicting beat, Bad Suns had us hooked from the beginning. Their songs are perfect for walking around campus on a beautiful fall day. Just download their album, plug in your headphones, and go. We promise you won’t regret it.
And best of all, Bad Suns is on tour. We say this is the best news of all because we know you’re going to fall madly in love with them and need to see them live (we’ve seen them, and they’re great). They have 40 (that’s right, FORTY) U.S. shows from October 14 to November 30. Their tour lineup is pretty snazzy featuring another amazing alternative rock group, New Politics.
