Bearings have released their highly-anticipated third album, The Best Part About Being Human via Pure Noise Records today. Produced by Sam Guaiana (Silverstein, Between You & Me), the new album features the most tightly honed songwriting of Bearings’ near-decade career – including previously released singled “Gone So Gone”, “Live Forever Never Die,” and “Slip” – leaving listeners instantly nostalgic for sweaty summer festivals and finger-pointed singalongs while serving as a clear indication of where the pop-punk genre is headed.
“The Best Part About Being Human is being alive and the second best part is writing an upbeat and exciting record with your brothers in a small house in North Hollywood,” says the band. “This record was us figuring out what we really wanted to play live, what got us excited, and I think we found that.”
They continue, “It had to be something we could play in its entirety live if we wanted and it would work. It’s got melancholy chorus’s and the wordy verses. It really feels like we were able to experiment while also honing in on what we do well and creating something both us and our fans will be proud of.”
Bearings will be hitting the road with Just Friends, Young Culture, Sad Park, Save Face, and Odd Sweetheart on The Alive And Loud Tour. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.bearingsband.com
