Info for Mystic Truth
Bad Suns announce the March 22nd release of their new album Mystic Truth, their first ever album for Epitaph Records. As a marker of a new era for Bad Suns, it’s a remarkable step forward that’s at once melodically sharper and more emotionally complex than anything they’ve done before.
Produced by Dave Sardy (Oasis, The Head And The Heart, The Black Angels) and recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound and Sardy’s home studio, Mystic Truth finds Bad Suns synthesizing a range of disparate influences — R.E.M., Kate Bush, Blue Nile, and Mikhail Bulgakov’s magical realist masterwork The Master and Margarita — into a restless, defiant sound that straddles rock & roll, post-punk, and pop. The album’s title was inspired by a Bruce Nauman art piece that vocalist Christo Bowman stumbled upon at the Tate Modern, a neon-and-glass sculpture that spells out a possibly paradoxical statement in blue spiraled cursive: “The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths.”
Throughout Mystic Truth, the band exhibits a refined sense of songcraft and a willingness to infuse their timeless sensibilities with adventurous sonic detours. Whether it’s the stuttering rhythmic bridge on “A Miracle, A Mile Away” — an idealized modern merger of the Brian Eno-produced eras of both U2 and Talking Heads — or the sprightly-yet-melancholic waltz of “Darkness Arrives (And Departs),” Bad Suns are torch-bearers for a brand of anthemic, open-hearted yet daring rock & roll long thought to be endangered. Mystic Truth is strong evidence that it’s in good hands.
Album opener and lead single “Away We Go” has already attracted praise from the LA Times (“a scream-along anthem…post-punk with a hint of the Boss”), Alternative Press, and more. Watch the video — “a triumph of color, rhythm and light” (Alternative Press)
Formed in Los Angeles County when they were teenagers, Bad Suns have come a long way since catching their first big break from LA radio institution KROQ after dropping a demo off in their mailbox. The band – hailed by NYLON as “hard-driving with heart” - performed on Kimmel and Conan, broke the Top 25 on the Billboard 200, toured with Halsey and The 1975, played Coachella and other marquee festivals, and sold out headlining dates across the globe. Their last album, 2016’s Disappear Here, was hailed by Alternative Press as “their most dynamic and introspective work yet,” adding “Bad Suns are merely getting started in their quest for world domination.”

began their musical career when Christo Bowman and Gavin Bennett first met in seventh grade. The two near-lifelong musicians eventually linked up with Ray Libby and Miles Morris and spent their teenage years working their way through the L.A. music scene. After dropping a demo off in the mailbox at alt-rock radio station KROQ, Bad Suns saw their breakthrough single "Cardiac Arrest" played on the famed Locals Only radio show, and quickly landed a record deal. The band then made their debut with the 2014 EP Transpose, and soon widened their following by hitting the road with bands like The 1975.
LA-based Bad Suns are back with a third full-length album Mystic Truth. Newly signed to Epitaph Records, Bad Suns found the making of Mystic Truth to be especially charmed. "Recording this album was like a never-ending dream - there were times when it felt like we were pulling songs out of the air," he says. One of the most memorable moments for the band took place on a writing trip in Palm Springs, during which they stayed in a mid-century dome house overlooking the nearby wind farm. "We were playing late at night and looking out at all the stars and the windmills, and 'Hold Your Fire' just came out of nowhere, which felt really special," Bowman recalls.
Over the years, Bad Suns have invited those bursts of inspiration by endlessly opening themselves up to new ideas, often by immersing themselves in art or literature. That approach undeniably shaped the emotional undercurrent of Mystic Truth, an album both intimate and universal in scope. Bowman notes, "When you're able to unite people through music, even if we're all coming from totally different circumstances and different places in life - to me that's one of the most intense levels of connection you can possibly have."
This album contains no booklet.
