BUGGIN "Concrete Cowboys" Tape

incl. VAT, plus shipping

GENRE - Hardcore
RECORD LABEL - Flatspot

Formed in 2018, Chicago hardcore band Buggin is here to have a good time. Their songs are vibrant, groovy, and real, as demonstrated on their upcoming album, Concrete Cowboys, set for release in Spring 2023 on Flatspot Records. Following the 2021 single “Brainfreeze” and 2020 EP, Buggin Out, it marks their first foray into a full-length record. The album title comes from a cut on the band’s 2019 demo and that song sees a rework as does “Poser Bulldozer”. Alongside tracks titled “Snack Run” and “The Customer Is Always Wrong,” it’s clear that Buggin aren’t afraid to have a little fun while singing about everyday occurrences.

As the band puts its:
“The album pretty much shows our growth as a band while still sticking true to our roots and why we started everything: having fun with the homies and not taking yourself too seriously. We’re not concerned with following any type of trends, just sticking in our own lane.”

Between these more playful elements are cathartic moments from vocalist Bryanna Bennett. “Hard 2 Kill” was written as a self-empowerment anthem, while “Not Yours” delves into the tokenization of women and non-binary folks in the hardcore scene. Closer “Youth” finds Bennett’s snarling vocals aided by bassist Dewey Hendrik’s more surf-punk vocal approach, creating a soundtrack for the younger generation. 

The relentless energy Buggin exudes on their recordings, comes across ten-fold in a live setting. Having already shared the stage opening for acts such as Turnstile, 7 Seconds, Show Me The Body, Zulu, and Soul Glo, it’s only a matter of time before the band reaches headliner status. 

With the release of Concrete Cowboys, Buggin continues to keep their be true to yourself mentality and push towards a bright future in hardcore.
