The third full-length from L.A. band Bad Suns, Mystic Truth gets its title from a piece of art that vocalist Christo Bowman stumbled upon while visiting London’s Tate Modern on tour. Created by Bruce Nauman in 1967, the neon-and-glass piece spells out a possibly paradoxical statement in blue spiraled cursive: “The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths.”
“I thought that connected back to the message of the record, which is about finding the extraordinary in very simple things, even though we’re living in a very dark time right now,” says Bowman, whose bandmates include guitarist Ray Libby, bassist Gavin Bennett, and drummer Miles Morris. “Instead of succumbing to that darkness, I think you’ve got to try to hold onto some optimism, and try to uncover those simple miracles so you don’t lose the plot of what’s really important.”
Produced by Dave Sardy (The Head and the Heart, The Black Angels, Oasis), Mystic Truth channels that searching quality into songs with a powerful sense of purpose. In creating the album, Bad Suns recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound and at Sardy’s home studio, building on the melodic brilliance first glimpsed on their debut album Language & Perspective—a 2014 release that hit #24 on the Billboard 200 and led to massive tours supporting Halsey and The Neighbourhood. At the same time, the band amps up the intensity of their 2016 sophomore effort Disappear Here (praised as their “most dynamic and introspective work yet” by Alternative Press), giving way to a more emotionally urgent merging of rock & roll, post-punk, and pop.
Russo are an American rock band formed in 2018 in Los Angeles, California. The group consists of Cailin Russo (lead vocals), Tyler McCarthy (lead guitar), Hayley Brownell (drums, backing vocals) and Sean Ritchie (bass).
Frontwoman Cailin Russo was raised in San Diego, California. Her father is Scott Russo, lead-singer of rock-band ‘Unwritten Law’. Cailin’s father exposed her to rock-music at an early age and she released various tracks under her own name, before following in her father’s footsteps and joining Tyler, Hayley and Sean to form Russo.
Russo initially began rehearsing in Echo Park, Los Angeles and played their first gig supporting Jessie Ware on 19th April at Belly Up in Solana Beach, California.
Russo’s debut project ‘A House with a Pool’ is scheduled for release in June 2018.
