Los Angeles indie rock combo Bad Suns found success with their 2013 debut single, “Cardiac Arrest,” which fused vivid, modern indie rock hooks with classic post-punk influences. The bandmembers took cues for their sound from ’70s and ’80s post-punk pioneers like the Cure and Elvis Costello. Blending the angsty songwriting influences from those legends with a brighter, more contemporary hook-heavy indie rock sound, Bad Suns released their first album, Language and Perspective, in 2014. The band climbed to fame with two Billboard Top 200 full-length albums, a tour with The 1975 and appearances at festivals like SXSW and Coachella. Two more singles have been released in advance of their third album, Mystic Truth, which will be released on March 22, 2019.
