Not Sorry is the first full-length album from Bad Cop/Bad Cop. Aptly titled, Not Sorry —produced by Fat Mike and recorded by Davey Warsop at Hurley Studios in Costa Mesa—brazenly blasts out some of the most vibrant pop-punk around today. Laden with catchy hooks, three part harmonies that’d make The Beach Boys jealous and tons of attitude, all thirteen tracks showcase their uncanny ability to blend aggressive instrumentation with polished vocals. Curious to see them live? We’ve got you covered because they’ll be tearing up North America with hefty amounts of touring to support the release. Don’t be a stranger to our site because we’ll be announcing those dates and premiering a new song shortly. Californians! This is where you should pay attention because Bad Cop/Bad Cop is joining Good Riddance for their series of record release shows starting TODAY in Los Angeles! Don’t miss this bombastic show because both bands will be bringing it. And now, a few words from Bad Cop/Bad Cop:
“We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with Mike on our first full length record. Continuing our creative relationship with Davey and Hurley was very important to us, as we love him and he is such a tremendous part of our sound. We are excited to share Not Sorry with the world—it covers a lot of true stories and ideals, issues we talk about together as a family. Also, the prospect of touring the shit out of the U.S. and more is pretty thrilling. Bring on the month-long slumber parties!”
The new Good Riddance record doesn’t come out until next week, but we just couldn’t wait to share Peace in Our Time with you, considering how amped we are on it! Americans, Australians and Kiwis: go to Pandora now! Europe, we have you covered compliments of Visions Magazine. And we didn’t forget our neighbors to the north: Canadians, Exclaim has your premiere. Californians, Good Riddance launch their series of record release shows this week with label mates Bad Cop/Bad Cop!
Today is the day that we crush you with another ripping new Good Riddance song. Head over to Revolver Magazine to listen to “Disputatio,” lead track from Peace in Our Time, out April 21st! Vocalist Russ Rankin defines the song as “Holding on to what one believes is their truth, even in the face of opposition and ridicule.” The subject matter for their new full-length—their first in nine years—is clear: global turmoil, conflicting ideals and the oppression that corporations inflict in our daily lives are all making living in peace truly a daily exercise. We’ll be premiering their full-length next week, stay tuned for details but you’ll get a sense of the album’s momentum by listening to “Disputatio” and then “Dry Season” which you can hear over at Noisey. Don’t miss Good Riddance live, they’ll be tearing up California this month before heading to Europe to tackle Groezrock in May!
We just got word that Smoke or Fire is playing in Chicago! You lucky dogs!
