The multiplatinum-certified German duo Milky Chance teamed up with British singer Izzy Bizu for their latest single “Bad Things” which comes complete with a clever new music video. “The inspiration for ‘Bad Things’ came from a feeling of finding yourself repeatedly stuck in the same kind of situation.” explains Clemens, continuing “It’s a tiring, going-around-in-circles-tragedy. In the end, it‘s always up to you to find the way out, but this song is a shout out to that person who’s always there whilst you work it out.”

“Bad Things” is quintessential Milky Chance. The track showcases the band’s talent for combining catchy as hell analogue folk with contemporary electronic production to create real earworms. The message is simple – very good things can happen when you team up with someone else to tackle the difficult stuff life throws at us. Trouble never sounded this good.

LA rock band Bad Things – that consists of front man/lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar (formerly of Augustana), guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White (professional snowboarder/skateboarder) will be releasing their debut, self-titled album January 21st on Warner Bros. Records. The lead single “Anybody, ” a “chugging rock anthem heavy with choirboy backing harmonies” according to Rolling Stone, is now for sale at iTunes and streaming on YouTube and Soundcloud.

Right on the heels of Bad Things‘ release, NBC is set to air “Shaun White: Russia Calling” on January 25th. The special gives an inside look at how the gold-medal-winning snowboarder prepped for the Winter Olympics in Sochi next month in addition to juggling his other commitments, including Bad Things.

Get a taste of what Bad Things are all about live, check out this video (below) from Lollapalooza of the band covering Iggy And The Stooges’ “Search And Destroy” as well as a clip of “Anybody.” Bad Things completed a North American tour of the country last fall that included festival stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Osheaga Festival in Montreal and Voodoo Music and Art Experience in New Orleans, which earned the band much deserved acclaim.

Bad Things earned their undeniable chemistry through sheer persistence and – in the case of Zawaideh, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, and lead guitarist Shaun White – a friendship forged in their San Diego hometown that dates back to their teens. In 2014 Bad Things is ready to share their electrifying sound and moving lyrics with the world.With the upcoming self-titled debut release, it’s only the beginning.  “Music is what we do,” Sanudo says. “It is all we can do and all we ever want to do. Though obviously Shaun is pretty good at a couple of other things.”
