2015 was the last time Bully stormed the east coast of the country with their joyous pop-punk tunes and effervescent personality. Returning for Splendour In The Grass, fans can catch a special show at the inner north’s The Tote on Wednesday July 18th.
The Nashville quartet serenaded ears and stole hearts with their 2014 debut single ‘Milkman’, kick-starting the global recognition they would receive with first album Feels Like (2015). The release peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart, featuring weighty tunes ‘Trying’ and ‘Too Tough’.
That momentum saw the four-piece return to the place Bognanno started her musical journey, recording follow-up album Losing (Sub Pop Records) at Chicago’s Electrical Audio Studio, where the singer used to be an intern. Released last year, it’s a visceral journey from start to finish; ‘Feel The Same’ pulses with the feeling of claustrophobia in a manic space of mind, while ‘Seeing It’ radiates the heightened anxiety and vigilance felt as a woman.
Alongside consistent and razor-sharp songwriting, Bully’s stature as a band-to-watch has grown taller on the live stage. 2015 was a breakthrough year for the band, playing Lollapalooza, followed by an extensive US run and their Australian debut for three blistering shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Nearly three years on, the return of Bully is more than anticipated and anxiously missed. If you can’t make it to Splendour, you won’t have to miss out! Tickets on sale here
