BAD NERVES announce their highly anticipated self-titled debut album, set for release October 23rdvia Killing Moon Records with their exuberant new video for ‘Baby Drummer’(directed and produced by the band’s own very own Bobby Nerves).
This hi-octane debut exploresfamiliar human experiences filtered through a nihilistic lens, touching upon the anxieties of lost youth, in the never-ending pursuit of self-improvement and the justification of existence. All of these matters are perpetuated by the backdrop of futile modern distractions and disheartening comparisons drawn through the illusions of social media.
Loud, fast and packed with undeniably infectious hooks, BAD NERVES’ latest offering, ‘Baby Drummer’ is overflowing with more than enough frenetic punk rock energy to fuel your summer. Bad Nerves are back doing what they do best.
“Baby Drummer is about longing for something exciting to happen in music again. For a band or an artist to come along and totally change the game. For a new subculture to emerge championing guitar music again as it has in the past. This record’s been a long time coming, and it’s cool to be releasing it with like-minded people at Killing Moon!” – Bobby Nerves
