Seattle’s Brad released a new single and music video for “Hey Now What’s the Problem?” from the next LP, The moment you were born. The album will drop on July 28th via Loosegroove Records.
New Melody has a straightforward rock and roll vibe, with distorted guitars from Stone Gossard (also of Pearl Jam fame), lead bass and drums from Keith Lowe and Regan Hagar, respectively, and fiery vocals from the late singer Shawn Smith.
The song’s music video, which was directed by Hagar, features live footage from classic Brad performances with pop culture imagery from movies, TV shows, and horror films.
