Bully earned their CoSign in 2015 when they dropped their debut album, Feels Like, one of the year’s best efforts. Now, the Nashville rockers are set to reaffirm their greatness with their upcoming sophomore record, Losing.
Due out October 20th via Bully’s new label home Sub Pop, Losing was engineered and mixed by the band’s leader, Alicia Bognanno, at Electrical Audio in Chicago. The record once again faces down youthful angst, but with a notable growth in Bognanno’s maturity.
Lead single “Feel the Same”, for example, “describes the prison of a manic mind-set, being trapped in your own head.” Though a relatively quick 2:22, it perfectly catches the feeling of having your mind overtaken by barrage of useless thoughts as backing vocals pan left and right. “Cut my hair, I feel the same/ Masturbate, I feel the same/ Hope you’re okay, I feel the same,” sings a frustrated and bored Bognanno.
Take a listen:
Pre-orders for the new record are available here. Those who purchase the LP via Sub Pop’s webstore or select local retailers will receive a limited edition clear “Loser” edition. Find the cover art and tracklist below.
