Our Feature Album for October | Bugs' 'Self Help'

25 Oct 2019

As far as Brisbane bands go, the last few years have seen Bugs steadily grown to become a huge fan favourite both in their hometown and nationwide. Now releasing their second album Self Help, we are proud to present this as our GYROstream Feature Album for this month! 

Twelve tracks of indie rock, pop and punk bliss, the album shows a new side to the three-piece with it’s frank storytelling, vulnerability and honesty. Packed to the brim with singalongs, you might have heard lead single ‘Seriously’ on the triple j airwaves over the last few weeks. Upbeat, catchy and full of Bugs’ signature charisma, ‘Seriously’ brilliantly shows off their light-hearted side without failing to deliver one hell of a stomper.

Whether you feel like having a mini mosh to yourself with ‘Safe Place’, want to rock out with the heartfelt ‘Heart On Your Sleeve’, or just want to have a bit of fun with ‘Yew Crew’, Self Help really has you covered, whatever the mood!

Having recently performed at Yours & Owls festival, Bugs are having a huge sendoff for the year. Now touring with Aussie legends Grinspoon, the band will be following this up with a headline national tour in support of the Self Help album in November.

Have a listen to their album below, and make sure you pop on down to one of their shows in the coming months!
