Canada’s Nobro have today announced a new EP Live Your Truth Shred Some Gnar, that’ll be released on February 23rd via Big Scary Monsters. They have also shared a new taste of the EP with new single “Bye Bye Baby“.
“Bye Bye Baby” is the first song written and released by guitarist/vocalist Karolane Carbonneau who explains: “When I wrote that song, I was having the worst breakup of my life. Kathryn, the lead singer of our band, said to me ‘you should take advantage of your sadness to write a freaking badass song.’ I’ve always wanted to sing lead vocals on a song, but I never got the guts to do it. Props to Kathryn for the support and forcing me to do it! And please, do yourself a favour and never let anyone bring you down. Always believe in yourself.”

Working once again with producer Thomas D’Arcy (July Talk, The Sheepdogs, Yukon Blonde), and mixed by two-time Grammy Award winning engineer Dave Schiffman (Vampire Weekend, Adele), Live Your Truth Shred Some Gnar harnesses Nobro’s raw power with heavy doses of fun and flair.
“When I’m listening to music, I just want it fucking loud,” vocalist/bassist Kathyrn McCaughey says. “So, I think it’s important to us to offer music that can be played extremely loud and that’s the foundation of all these new songs. The biggest difference between this EP and Sick Hustle is that we recorded each song one at a time, rather than doing all the drum tracks one day and all the bass tracks another day. I think it gives each song a more distinctive vibe.”
