new album growing pains out now
growing pains tour dates announced
There’s an unrest in the foothills, an insatiable hunger that howls down from the mountains and into the sweating, grinding clubs of Calgary. It feels primal and it feels urgent, as if missing even a single one of their perfectly curated shows would result in being ostracized from the pack. Bad Animal swagger on stage and the lights dim: amidst gleaming guitars and pop-perfect synths, the five-piece circles and prowls, flicking their hips and licking their lips, the thrill of the kill the only thing that matters now. Theirs is a communal experience, the immediate union of crowd and band into something greater than the sum of its parts.
The ravenous quintet never content with resting easy on their laurels, each of their releases continues to push the band into higher strata. They know, as well as you do, that each new song, each new show, each new album is a test of their mettle, a battle against mediocrity, an artistic expression of the kind of freedom that redefines reality. Tonight is forever, my dear friends, and we’re all ascending with Bad Animal.
