Today, Bearings have announced that they will be releasing their third studio album, The Best Part About Being Human, on August 18th via Pure Noise Records.

The album was produced by Sam Guaiana (Silverstein, Between You & Me) and features perhaps the most tightly honed songwriting of Bearings’ near-decade career. “‘The Best Part About Being Human’ is being alive and the second best part is writing an upbeat and exciting record with your brothers in a small house in North Hollywood,” says the band via press release. “This record was us figuring out what we really wanted to play live, what got us excited, and I think we found that.

Pre-orders for The Best Part About Being Human can be found here.

Alongside the album announcement, Bearings have released the album’s first single, “Gone So Gone.” On the new track, the band explain, “’Gone So Gone’ is about making fun of yourself and your situation. The song really is about heartbreak but by sort of creating it yourself. Sad but sort of funny, as with anything in life I think it’s good to laugh at yourself about it. Why else would I use the word fuss?

Listen to “Gone So Gone” below.
