Canadian punks NOBRO have announced details of an upcoming EP, Live Your Truth Shred Some Gnar, and shared new single Bye Bye Baby.
The quartet's new record – following 2020 EP Sick Hustle – is out in full on February 23 via Big Scary Monsters, with vocalist / bassist Kathyrn McCaughey teasing of the basis of this new material: “When I’m listening to music, I just want it fucking loud. So, I think it’s important to us to offer music that can be played extremely loud and that’s the foundation of all these new songs.
“The biggest difference between this EP and Sick Hustle is that we recorded each song one at a time, rather than doing all the drum tracks one day and all the bass tracks another day. I think it gives each song a more distinctive vibe.”
Of Bye Bye Baby, meanwhile, guitarist / vocalist Karolane Carbonneau shares: “When I wrote that song, I was having the worst break-up of my life. Kathryn, the lead singer of our band, said to me, ‘You should take advantage of your sadness to write a freaking badass song.’ I’ve always wanted to sing lead vocals on a song, but I never got the guts to do it. Props to Kathryn for the support and forcing me to do it! And please, do yourself a favour and never let anyone bring you down. Always believe in yourself.”
