We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Happy.’s new song “I Call Shotgun” (listen below). The single will be available at midnight.
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Cult Classic, which is scheduled to be released on September 7, 2018 through Rude Records.
About the band:
Happy., comprising of Tate Logan (vocals/rhythm guitar), Jack Eskridge (guitar), Caleb Rucker (drums), and Sean Bowick (bass), is more than just a pop punk band from Columbia, SC. Formed in 2016, Happy. released a successful EP entitled, The Endless Bummer, before signing with independent record label, Rude Records in early 2018. The band’s mission is to provide a sense of nostalgia for listeners with a sound that is full of infectious melodic hooks, oozing with catchy harmonies.
Happy.’s debut album, Cult Classic, was produced and engineered by Will Pugh of Cartel and mastered by Cameron Boucher of Sorority Noise. The album offers an exorbitant amount of heartfelt writing with the overarching theme of working to be the best version of yourself.
Vocalist Tate Logan expands:
Happiness is subjective and you are the only person that can be in control of your happiness and you get to determine the things that make you happy. Throughout this album, we are spreading the message that you can create and achieve your own definition of happy, you don’t have to compare yourself to others, or be afraid to think outside of the box, to try new things, or be who you are. Every day you are given an opportunity to better yourself and be happy, to spread that happiness and self love to others.”
Kicking off 2018 with a bang, Happy. released three infectious tracks off the what was unannounced album, Cult Classic, including debut single “Don’t Overdose and Drive,” a song about picking yourself up during the hardest of times and remembering no matter how low you get, and how toxic the situation is, you can always get yourself out and come out on top. The band followed with “Winona Ryder,” a song about the infatuation that some guys have with the idea of a “manic pixie dream girl” that doesn’t exist and finally, “Fishtank” a single about being in an unhealthy relationship but not being able to see the issues from the inside.
