Am 15. Juni erscheint mit "Bay Dream" das neue Album von CULTURE ABUSE. Der Nachfolger zu "Peach" (2016) erscheint via Epitaph und entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit Produzent Carlos de la Garza (u.a. PARAMORE, JIMMY EAT WORLD, M83). Vorab stellt die Indieband aus San Francisco mit "Bee Kind To The Bugs" einen weiteren neuen Vorgeschmack auf das Album im Stream vor.
Frontmann David Kelling erklärt:
“I was smoking a joint on our back porch in SF with my roommates talking about bumble bees and how much they do for our planet. The fact that they can even fly is a miracle and I was thinking about how they are all being killed off because humans are horrible. I wrote down the words ‘be kind to the bees, be kind to the bugs’.
Musically, I’ve had the chord progression for the verse since I was in high school. I’ve written multiple songs with that same progression, never showed anyone, but I’ve always loved it. One day I looked at my note pad and saw the two lines, played the chords and the words just flowed out. I had also been reading ‘Sidartha’ by Herman Hesse; the chorus is basically trying to say that material possessions don’t love you back and looks don’t matter, so take all my belongings and let me find peace.”
