Bully last stormed Australia in 2015 with a string of east coast shows, and now Frontier Touring and I OH YOU are thrilled to confirm that the Nashville quartet will bring their joyous pop-punk back to Sydney and Melbourne this July while in the country to play Splendour In The Grass.
The band’s debut single, 2014’s ‘Milkman’ captured the ears of Columbia Records label Startime International, kick-starting the global recognition they would receive with first album Feels Like (2015). The release peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart, featuring weighty tunes ‘Trying’ and ‘Too Tough’, and garnered critical acclaim.
That momentum saw the four-piece return to the place Bognanno started her musical journey, recording follow-up album Losing (Sub Pop Records) at Chicago’s Electrical Audio Studio, where the singer used to be an intern. Released last year, it’s a visceral journey from start to finish; ‘Feel The Same’ pulses with the feeling of claustrophobia in a manic space of mind, while ‘Seeing It’ radiates the heightened anxiety and vigilance felt as a woman.
Alongside consistent and razor-sharp songwriting, Bully’s stature as a band-to-watch has grown taller on the live stage. 2015 was a breakthrough year for the band, playing Lollapalooza, followed by an extensive US run and their Australian debut for three blistering shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
It’s been nearly three years since then, and Bully are sorely missed. You won’t want to miss out on their unique electricity this July!
