Indie punk band, Sundressed have teamed up with City Mouth for “Bad Drugs“, their first new single of 2023. Out now via Rude Records, the track arrives alongside a new music video, which can be seen now below.
On the new video, vocalist Trevor Hedges shares, “This song is about my personal journey getting on the right medication for my mental health. Though I think it was absolutely worth it, it took a long time for me to get to the place I am today and I hope this song can make some people feel less alone in that journey.”
Living on such a chaotic planet, tossing and turning is inevitable. It’s hard to sleep in the midst of uncertainty. That’s why Sundressed was born. Lead vocalist and songwriter Trevor Hedges began his project in 2012, with the initial purpose of maintaining his sobriety. Now, 10 years later, Hedges has refocused the project’s mission, writing songs that tackle mental health issues for others to take solace in. His confessional lyrics and punk-infused melodies inspire hope in listeners to continue moving forward.
Determined to make a positive impact one lyric at a time, Sundressed captured the attention of international label Rude Records (Saves The Day, Less Than Jake, The Maine), who signed the band in 2020 and soon after released their label debut Home Remedy. Produced by Mike Pepe – who also produced “Winner” – and featuring hit singles “Home Remedy”, “Oh Please”, “Your Frequency”, “Size Of My Heart”, and “Cash Out” feat. Sydney Sprague, Home Remedy garnered attention from tastemakers including Brooklyn Vegan, FLOOD Magazine, American Songwriter, Rock Sound, and more.
Last year Sundressed celebrated their 10th anniversary with their single “Winner” feat. You, Me And Everyone We Know. “Winner” – a track about wanting to be remembered for something – served as a remind of the band’s central theme: never give up and always keep doing what you love.
Stay tuned for more music, including a new full-length record, later this year.
