Ahead of their fourth full-length instalment 'Love & Drugs', Phoenix rock and Anarbor have dropped their long awaited single 'Bad Love'.
Undeniably catchy, the indie-pop song is the latest taste of the upcoming album release, due September 2nd. 'Bad Love' builds into an affirming chorus, emphasizing the need to break out from the chains of a struggling relationship:
“'Bad Love' tells the story of a co-dependent, toxic relationship as it falls apart. Drug use, throwing the blame where it doesn’t belong, and turning one’s back in a time of need leads to a difficult conversation that needs to be had; ‘I think I’m through with you.’”
In support of the release comes an animated lyric video, exploring all the signs of an unhealthy relationship in its final days and coming to terms with the end.
Anarbor formed in 2003 whilst the members were still in junior high school. After signing with Hopeless Records in 2008, the band found mainstream success providing theme songs for Cartoon Network's 'Scooby Doo! The Mystery Begins', ESPN's SportsCenter, Good Day L.A and MLB Network Countdown. Alongside relentless touring in the US, Anarbor have appeared in Japan, the UK, Canada and Australia and are now gearing up for their fourth studio album release.
