bumpin uglies

On September 9, Annapolis, Maryland reggae/ska trio Bumpin Uglies will release their third full-length record, titled Keep It Together, through Right Coast Records. Today, the band has teamed up with Substream to share a lyric video for a super-smooth new single called “All In.” You can check it out below and pre-order the band’s upcoming album through iTunes.

Touching on the theme of the new song, vocalist/guitarist Brandon Hardesty recalls, “‘All In’ is a song about devotion and dedication. I started writing the lyrics around the time that we started spending more time on the road than time spent at home. The message is that if you really want something, it’s worth giving 100 percent of what you have to give.” As far as the record itself, Hardesty adds, “[Keep It Together] is the culmination of the last eight years of my life. It’s a collection of stories about touring as an independent band, but told in a way that is applicable to everyday life. There are songs about long drives, financial uncertainty, lost friendships, relationships, and panic attacks. It’s a mixture of ska/punk, reggae/rock, and dub, but with a darkness to it that isn’t usually found in the genre.”
