Finnish post-hardcore ‘Violent Pop’ outfit BLIND CHANNEL are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated new album, ‘Lifestyles of the Sick & Dangerous’, which drops on July 8th, 2022 via Century Media. Today, the band have released their third single and music video, “Bad Idea”, from the record.
”Bad Idea” is a serenade of self-pity and an unsuccessful apology. In the lyrics, we’re getting personal and digging deeper than ever. The song came to life many years ago, when relationships ended in a very ugly manner and all you could think of was: ”well I warned you,” states BLIND CHANNEL about the new track.
The band’s forthcoming full-length album, Lifestyles of the Sick & Dangerous, is available to pre-order, HERE.
In addition to the new music, BLIND CHANNEL are thrilled to be joining From Ashes To New on their upcoming “Still Panicking” 2022 U.S. tour!
ABOUT BLIND CHANNEL:
“Rohkea rokan syö”, or to loosely translate this Finnish saying: “Fortune Favours The Brave”. Truly, none have been braver than BLIND CHANNEL. Focusing intently on their mission to take their brand of infectiously ferocious nu-metal outside of Finland’s linguistic restrictions this bravery is engrained within.
Furiously fighting their way into the worldwide mainstream, the six-piece have always been embracing their influences, from nu-metal iconoclasts to pop and hip-hop behemoths, it’s all a part of BLIND CHANNEL’s DNA. That’s the key to their draw, they’re only interested in sticking true to themselves while studiously searching for the keys to unlock the doors of success.
BLIND CHANNEL knew that they had something to process. Not only the “modern-day misery” plaguing the world, as Joel puts it, but also proving that they could deliver more than the crowd-pleasing anthem of ‘Dark Side’. Lifestyles of the Sick & Dangerous is a lashing, brutal, bravado and swagger filled, sincere depiction of their lives, backed by their trademark unforgiving “violent pop music”. As well as a winking homage to the Good Charlotte track Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, it’s most importantly a righteous statement of intent. That this is only the beginning.
BLIND CHANNEL is Joel Hokka (vocals, guitar), Niko Moilanen (vocals), Joonas Porko (guitar), Olli Matela (bass), Tommi Lalli (drums), AND Aleksi Kaunisvesi (samples, percussion, DJ)
