Bearings have announced that they will be releasing their new album, Blue in the Dark, on October 26th via Pure Noise Records. It serves as the follow-up to their label debut EP, Nothing Here Is Permanent, which came out last year.
On the new album, Bearings have found themselves pushing forward with a sound that maintains the style they have already established, while still exploring new territory. “We went in with the plan of writing a dynamic record and I think we did that. I’ve always loved bands like Jimmy Eat World for not being afraid to try and write a record without boundaries musically. Myself and the guys wanted to replicate that attitude and approach to the writing of the record,” explains vocalist Doug Cousins.
The first taste of this progress can be heard with their newly released song “Aforementioned,” which can be found at the top of the post. The song certainly showcases a new direction for Bearings, and is one that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on a Transit record. “Sometimes it takes a couple rough nights to appreciate what and who you have in your life. ‘Aforementioned’ is a reflection on the worst and best nights of this past year. You can’t have the ups without the downs and that’s something I’m learning to accept,” states Cousins.
Not only will Bearings be releasing a new album, they will also be going out on a North American tour this fall. They will be supporting Like Pacific and Roam on their tour, which will kick off on October 5th in Chicago, Illinois, and will wrap up on November 9th in Toronto, Ontario.
Bearings’ new album, Blue in the Dark, will be released on October 12th via Pure Noise Records. You can pre-order the record here. Check out all of the album details and their upcoming tour dates below.
