Bellevue Days have announced their debut album.
‘It Can’t Possibly Go Wrong Ever’ is due on 22nd November, with a video for early teaser ‘Shotgun’ – which features a Martin Shkreli / Wu Tang Clan album theft parody – arriving today.
“It seems like the whole world is kinda falling apart in every direction you look, doesn’t it?” vocalist Alan Smith comments. “For me personally, I took a long look at the world around me and I just kinda realised how f*cked up it’s become. I usually try to steer away from politics in music; I ain’t no Bob Dylan (just yet). I find it hard not to put my personal experiences and feelings into songs—from depression, to family issues, to deaths – as that’s usually the only thing I can really go off, but on this record there are a few more stories which I imagine from other people’s points of view, which was an interesting and refreshing perspective.”
Of the band’s new video, he adds: “This is the first song we wrote for the album. Unusually for us, it was born from a major jam sesh late one spring evening. When Dan first hit those chords I knew he was onto something big. It was like we were four puzzle pieces fitting together perfectly. It was sludgy as hell. Juxtaposed with the serious nature of the song’s subject matter, we wanted to take a more lighthearted route with the video by just having a bit of fun and furthering our acting careers… Brad Pitt better watch out!”
The record’s track listing reads:
1. Gentle Flowerr
4. The Greatest Demise
6. Sleep, Repeat, Again…
7. Dashboard Jesus
8. Losing Touch
9. Freakin Out
10. The Joy Of Living
