Lincoln indie punks Bad Ideas are delighted to finally reveal their new single ‘Give Up’ the band’s first new music since their popular 2014 EP ‘The Better Parts of You’ released via Uncle M and Paper + Plastick records.


‘Give Up’ which premiered earlier via Noisey (Vice) is a auto-biographical account of vocalist Sam Cook’s start to a hellish year, as he explains:

“I started last year in pretty bad shape and was living between friends houses as I moved back from Leeds to our home town, Lincoln. After New Year’s celebrations had petered out, I was sat in our bassists’ lounge feeling rough in many ways, and wrote what became ‘Give Up’, helping me to draw a kind of mental line under things.”

Bad Ideas head out on tour later this month playing shows in Brighton and London before embarking on a 2-week tour of Holland, Belgium & Germany with Isle of Wight singer songwriter, The Lion & The Wolf.

‘Give Up’ is available from the band’s Bandcamp page, check it out here.
