Sometimes you just need some heavy, intense rock to help get any bottled-up energy out. Hailing from Nashville, TN, rockers H.A.R.D
(the acronym stands for "have a rad day") are out with their debut single, "Bellyacher," and it's a song that helps you do just that. Produced by Jordan Smith of Diarrhea Planet
and featuring guest vocals from Cyle Barnes, the song's riotous energy is created with harmonizing guitars and clashing drums. And if that's not enough, the singer shouting "I don't give a fuck!" is cathartic enough in itself.
"'Bellyacher' was the first track Daniel and Thomas started working on after a couple years of not writing together," the group told us. "The heavy intro really got us excited to try this new vision we had for this new band. The lyrics originally started about a stressed friendship, but Thomas wanted to try something different and tell an interesting story. The story ended up being about the band being abducted by aliens and Tom Delonge saving them. Thomas is a huge Ancient Aliens and UFO buff and grew up listening to Blink-182 so it only felt right to pay homage to a fellow alien enthusiast."
They continued, "We chose 'Bellyacher' as our single because it's rowdy, has sweet guitar harmonies that we love so much, and also has guest vocals from our good buddy Cyle Barnes from The Weeks, who have taken us out on quite a few shows already this year."
H.A.R.D's debut EP entitled HaveARadDay
will be released this Spring.
