“I started the lyrics to this song maybe three or four times and I
scrapped them every time. And then I had the one line, the first line of
the song in my head, “But did you know I hold my breath through every
tunnel?‘” and I literally wrote the whole thing on the 20-minute car
ride home. Putting it first on the record makes a statement for the
overall theme, of young insecurities and still being confused and going
year by year and thinking it’s getting more understandable, but every
year I grow older it’s still insane.“ - Ned Russin

I’m extremely proud of my friends and how far they’ve come. It’s really amazing to have so many talented friends being so good at what they do, and watching them grow overtime. What difference three years makes.
Here’s a new song, “Beers Again Alone” … I believe it is the last song we’re gonna be releasing before We Cool? all comes out.
TL:DR - This song has been kicking around longer than any of the other songs by far - I started writing it in 2006 for the third Bomb the Music Industry! record Goodbye Cool World when I was living in Forrest Hills, seemingly far far away from my friends as the train didn’t go there as quickly as it went to other places. I could never quite finish the song in a way that I liked, so I just kinda assumed it would never get done. Then when I broke my foot in 2013 and was once again isolated from a lot of folks, this time because I couldn’t walk anywhere (and fuck, man, I never realized how goddamn rude people are in this city! Whenever I’d venture out, no one offered a seat on the subway and everyone shoved on by me. But it’s cool…) I decided a fun project would be to tear this song the fuck apart and build it back up again. I ended up pretty happy with it and released a demo of it that night, only to be up for 24 hours. The positive response helped push me to keep writing the songs that ended up on this record!
So there’s the story behind that! I hope you’ve enjoyed all these new songs a lot and I can’t wait to share the album with everyone and see y'all on tour! If you haven’t pre-ordered yet and would like to click here. Thanks!!
Happy to share that we will be heading out on tour this May/June with Creepoid and The Spirit Of The Beehive. We’ll be hitting a ton of spots all across the US and into Canada. Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, April 22nd.
At the conclusion of this tour, we will be taking an indefinite hiatus from touring full time to pursue things in our own personal lives. We sort of already began that process, as we really haven’t played many shows in the past few months. But before we do, we all thought it’d be fun to do one more with a couple great bands. Hope to see you this spring.
