Published Jun 11, 2020Nashville grunge rockers Bully have announced plans to shared their third full-length record, SUGAREGG. The album arrives via Sub Pop on August 21.
Today, the band are giving us a sneak peek with the record's first single, "Where to Start," a track described as the "musical equivalent of the sun piercing through a perpetually cloudy sky." The song arrives alongside an Alan Del Rio Ortiz-directed video.
Frontwoman Alicia Bognanno's story of bringing SUGAREGG to life comes after the artist had to face her own life in a stark and real way, having had to find proper treatment for her bipolar 2 disorder before the record was able to take off.
"There was change that needed to happen and it happened on this record. Derailing my ego and insecurities allowed me to give these songs the attention they deserved," Bognanno said in a press release.
"This is me longing to see the bigger picture, motivated and eager for contentment in the best way," she added. "I hope the happy go lucky / fuck-it-all attitude shines through some of these songs because I really did feel like I was reentering a place I hadn't been to in a while and was excited to be back there."
SUGAREGG follows the release of the band's sophomore record, 2017's Losing. Earlier this year, Bognanno released a pair of singles, covers of Orville Peck's "Turn to Hate" and Nirvana's "About a Girl".
