Bad Moves announce Untenable for 6/29 release

by Woody on May 5, 2020

Bad Moves are a punk outfit out of DC. I had a damn good time taking in a set during SXSW 2019. Now they’re set to follow up 2018’s excellent Tell No One with an album that couldn’t have a better title during these times. Untenable will see the light of day via the fine folks at Don Giovanni Records on 6/29. Here’s some info from the PR team.

Recorded late last year at Philadelphia’s Headroom Studios with Joe Reinhart (Hop Along), Untenable nudges Bad Moves’ sound to suit a slightly darker outlook. The drums charge along with intensity and bite. The guitars favor lockstep call-and-response riffs. A bit of noise, dissonance, and snarl has crept into the periphery. Those spikier sounds frame lyrics about the numerous places that instability erodes our lives — tipped wages, service industry jobs, our self image as groomed for public consumption via social media.
