Releasing their debut album “Cowards” earlier this April, Grand Forks, BC’s 90’s grunge stoner rock trio BADGUYSWIN are sharing their next music video ‘Honey Bucket’ that features an acting cameo by ExPain guitarist Pat Peeve.
The video is being premiered via New Noise Mag HERE.
Vocalist/guitarist Shane Sherman explains the track:
“When we first started writing ‘Honey Bucket’ we didn’t know how impactful of a song it would become. I brought the first two riffs to our drummer Zak and he felt it out quickly, incorporating a strong Spanish style groove to the bluesy sound. Later on, we wrote the chorus and it was apparent it had a very strong hook. The lyrics are a vague description of being dependent on something. Vague enough to leave the message up for interpretation, but direct enough to tell a story of desperation. Originally we had a different ending. But we didn’t feel it had enough impact. We wanted a powerful finish to the song that would translate well to a live audience. After a few different ideas we really nailed it down and it’s become a staple in our set.”
Featuring 3 out of 4 members from technical metal band Slagduster, BADGUYSWIN shows off their original roots in music, the grunge era of the 90s where they would glue themselves to the stereo for hours. The members of BADGUYSWIN also all grew up together in the same small town and have been playing music together in various ways for 15 years.
The band’s debut full length “Cowards” was written to give the listener an experience that doesn’t repeat itself over 12 tracks. It’s an album that is a heavy and hooky modern take on a classic sound with influences that are everything 90’s in grunge, stoner, alternative, and punk. It was conceived organically, performed, and recorded DIY style at the home studio of drummer Zak Waterlow with mastering by Brock McFarlane of CPS studios in Vancouver. The album has a crisp and larger than life sound. With plenty of easter eggs that’ll have you searching for more from each listen.
“Cowards” is available for stream and download on Spotify, Apple Music along with physical CDs having limited edition artwork painted by Shane Sherman on Bandcamp. Each song’s lyrical content revolves around a story and a main character. A painting was depicted for each persona.
