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.
