BUGS Announce New Single, Aussie Tour & EP Details

After opening Falls Festival for triple j unearthed and touring the country off the back of their single Neighbourhood – including Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, and Melbourne Music Week – Brisbane’s trio of boyish blokes BUGS have returned with new single Glue, and the announcement of their second EP ‘Social Slump’ Due on April 13th.

 

The boys have also announced that they will be heading on a national EP tour this May and June that will take them to almost every corner of the country. Kicking off at Bloom Festival Brisbane on April 8th the boys then head to Lennox Head on May 11 before making their way to Adelaide, Melbourne, Toowoomba, Gold Coast, Wollongong, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Bunbury, Perth, Fremantle, Launceston and finishing up in Hobart.

 

The video for new single Glue enlists the help a bunch of local Brisbane bands – including Sweater CurseEliza and The DelusionalsNeighbour, and Gill Bates – who take the mic and rock out in an empty pool like a rad old school skate video.

 

Glue explores the fearful feeling that everything around you is constantly moving forward and changing while you are stuck in the same place, head space or behaviours.

 

Flicking through Facebook photos of people you went to school with having kids & buying homes whilst your living pay to pay off a retail wage sipping $7 Sauv Blanc from the bottle is fun, but toxic. Everyone is running their own race at their own pace, just remember that. No need for judgement in comparison to others, and certainly no need for self-deprecation. Commitment isn’t for everyone!” – Connor Brooker
