The band releases “songs about our lives in 2021” – Times-Standard
Chicago’s Bad Planning has announced plans to release a new album, “Et Fortes,” this spring through Jump Start Records.
The band says, “This record represents great growth for our band – the past sound blending with the new sound, and longtime comrades with the new ones. Writing this record gave us meaning during lockdown, and we can’t wait to share it. You will hear a wide range of influences and a sound that blurs the line between pop punk and melodic hardcore. These are songs about our lives in 2021.
With a sound that equally encompasses hardcore, emo, skate punk and pop-punk, Bad Planning is a band that really does things their own way.
The new Jump Start Records hires have been writing together since they were in first year in high school. Now, all these years later, the band still books their own gigs, performs with some of their favorite bands, and makes a name for themselves.
The group writes with a sound that is in the same vein as their fellow Chicago influences such as Rise Against, Alkaline Trio and The Lawrence Arms. In 2019, they released “Splitting Hairs” alongside Chicago band A Semester Abroad, bringing a heavier side with the singles “Be Brave” and “Actors”. The band continued to promote split and perform live shows while writing their first full length album, “Et Fortes”.
