The band will be touring in support of Bay Dream, their sophomore album, and the first full-length release for Epitaph Records, which was released last week.
Produced, engineered, and mixed by Carlos de la Garza (Wolf Alice, Jimmy Eat World, Cherry Glazerr), Bay Dream follows Culture Abuse’s 2016 debut Peach. With its lyrics informed by frontman David Kelling’s recent relocation from San Francisco to L.A., Bay Dream draws inspiration from artists as eclectic as Sly and the Family Stone, Paul Simon, and reggae legend Billy Boyo.
Bay Dream includes the recently released single “Dip.” In creating the track’s high-concept yet lo-fi video (which premiered on Tuesday), director Ryan Baxley built a human-sized photocopy machine, and essentially turned the clip into an animated zine.
