Bad Ideas announce break-up, release final album

U.K.-based emo/punk quartet Bad Ideas, who had planned to release their third album over the coming summer, have just announced their break-up. Sam Cook, the group’s vocalist, had this to say;

“As the founding member of Bad Ideas all of five years ago, and the main catalyst in this decision, Ive been nominated to write this- but I will try to speak for us as a collective as much as possible here… Bad Ideas has been a massive part of our lives. We’ve had endless amazing experiences, and met countless wonderful people in many different parts of the world. We’ve had incredible support, understanding, and love from so many of these creative, caring and marvellous individuals, and first and foremost- THANK YOU to you all!”

However, this announcement was accompanied with an early release of their final, self-titled album, which you can check it out below. On the early release, Cook had this to say;

“We made a record last summer that we’ve not managed to release yet. Its something we poured a huge amount of time, love, and energy into, and were immensely proud of it. At this juncture it feels appropriate to finally share it with the wider world- We hope you love it as much as we do!”

The EP is available on the group’s Bandcamp page for $4. They’ve also made their entire discography available for $16.



Bad Ideas streams new single, “Give Up”

U.K.-based emo/punk quartet Bad Ideas has a new single out called “Give Up,” and you can check it out below.  This is the band’s first release since The Better Parts of You came out on Paper + Plastick Records back in 2014.

Singer Sam Cook describes the inspiration behind the song:

“I started last year in pretty bad shape and was living between friends houses as I moved back from Leeds to our home town, Lincoln.  After New Year’s celebrations had petered out, I was sat in our bassist’s lounge feeling rough in many ways, and wrote what became ‘Give Up’, helping me to draw a kind of mental line under things.”

It’s nice to see something good come out of shitty circumstances, isn’t it?  Bad Ideas is also touring Holland, Belgium, and Germany this March.  You can find more info on that here.
