Bassist Devin Martinez says, “The heart of this song stems from my childhood or lack thereof. I had a lot of home problems when I was growing up. This song is directed at that person who is in and out of your life and really stems from me coming to terms with the fact that that person will never be back in my life. The pre-chorus to this song is sort of a wish that I would have. A wish that they would leave a note or let me know they would not be back. For me, that never came to be. They would leave and return years later, just to cause havoc and that is why the chorus is exaggerated with the word “Liar”. That individual in my life couldn’t commit to anything, including the title of Father. Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy “Daddy Issues””.
Since its inception over breakfast burritos and nitro brew, the growth of Bury Mia has been rapid and steady. In just a few years the band has launched themselves from sweaty garage practices to packed and rowdy shows across the West Coast. As this 4-piece brotherhood of Punk has progressed through growing pains and extricated band members they’ve held a tight grip on their mission to assert their authenticity and musical lineage. As Bury Mia continues to gain recognition, their sound has become tighter and instantly recognizable.
Within a few years, Bury Mia has twice toured the West Coast and has made a significant impact in their local scene. In 2022 the band headlined a successful show at The Fox Theatre in Boulder and opened for major national acts including Boys Like Girls and State Champs at iconic Denver venues like The Ogden Theatre and The Gothic. They’ve also been featured in an array of regional publications including 303 Magazine, Westword, and LoHi Lifestyle Magazine.
“We believe that this music demands success. There’s something special here, a reinvention of sorts, a familiarity but with a unique freshness unlike anything out there right now. It’s not about claiming to be original. Originality is a myth. But this music is authentic.” says drummer Marcus Allen-Hille.
This group is passionate about their music which shows in every note. With no other goal besides issuing their hard-earned music into the world, they are going to get heard. Bury Mia has firmly planted a flag in the sound they’ve been dialing in from the beginning: It’s big, it’s loud, and it’s undeniably punk.
