Big Mess Is Out Now On Atlantic Records

Grouplove - The Big Mess Of Life

In a time filled with socioeconomic hangups, the biggest joke of a presidential race in history, and increasing anxiety of the general public we can't help but ask ourselves "How will young adults and the next generation get by?" In response to this question, albums like Big Mess are becoming an answer and voice to express modern-day life.

Big Mess was released September 9th on Atlantic Records. After spending a week with the record it's proven to be a thought-provoking, musical, yet exciting record. This record combines themes of youth, politics, growing up and the chaos of life. The albums wide range of music with big, energetic rock numbers like "Cannonball", electronic and atmospheric songs like "Good Morning", and catchy singles like "Welcome To Your Life". You can listen to "Welcome To Your Life" below.

Since 2010 Grouplove has been releasing albums, killing live performances, and charting with their music. Great success came in 2013 in the form of their sophomore album Spreading Rumors which placed #21 on the Billboard 200 and 8/10 on Metacritic. Their current single "Welcome To Your Life" sits at #16 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and we're anticipating where Big Mess will end up on the chart as a whole. The album has currently been out for a little over a week and the band has begun touring and making appearances once again after taking some time off to write the album. After the release of Spreading Rumors in 2013, the band took on a heavy load of touring and really stepped back before completing this record. As a whole, the record is a well recorded indie-rock record with good production value and countless catchy hooks.

The group has made some special performances in an effort to promote Big Mass; such as an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, 2 NYC Shows at Rough Trade Brooklyn and Baby's All Right, and a performance onThe Late Show with Steven Colbert.You can watch Grouplove perform "Welcome to your life" live on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert below.
