New York City-based group MisterWives have announced their new record, SUPERBLOOM, out July 24th via Fueled By Ramen. The news was heralded by the release of the vibrant title track and accompanying visualizer, which can be seen now below. An intensely personal reflection on growth in unexpected places, SUPERBLOOM is a 19-track epic (including five tracks also featured on the group’s 2019 EP mini bloom), that marks a moment of major transformation for frontwoman Mandy Lee and her bandmates. SUPERBLOOM is available for preorder now.
Inspired by a trip to California’s Antelope Valley to see the superbloom, frontwoman Mandy Lee commented on the new track, “Standing amongst the vast and vibrant flowers that weren’t supposed to grow in the desert terrain, I was moved by its beauty and accurate representation of where I was at in life. Just like the flowers, I had grown in unexpected places. After experiencing a not-so-graceful and incredibly turbulent fall to rock bottom, I picked myself up and slowly grew through the pain. I felt an awful lot like these resilient little poppies that came out the other side against all odds – and I think that deserves congratulations.”
In April, MisterWives returned with new single and official video for “Rock Bottom,” praised by DuJour as “glittery… freeing and motivating.” Last year, the group announced their signing to Fueled By Ramen and shared the mini bloom EP, their first release since the band’s celebrated 2017 album, Connect The Dots. NYLON touted single “whywhywhy” as a “dreamy anthem,” with Billboard lauding “the end” as “characteristically sparkly … and empowering.” The five-song collection is available now at all DSPs.
Known for their dynamic, high-energy live set, New York City’s MisterWives have toured internationally and performed at some of the biggest music festivals around the globe. Comprised of Mandy Lee [vocals], Etienne Bowler [drums], William Hehir [bass], Marc Campbell [guitar], Jesse Blum [keys, trumpet, accordion] and Mike Murphy [Saxophone], MisterWives demonstrate tremendous self-assuredness and resolve to stay true to themselves in the face of the music industry’s constant pressure to conform.
