Beginning at Vassar College in the fall of 2016, the story of Spud Cannon charts the emotional journey of finding oneself with vignettes of rock and roll highs and lows interspersed throughout. All, mostly, before the quintet of Meg Matthews (lead vox), Jackson Walker Lewis (guitar), Ari Bowe (keys), Lucy Horgan (bass) and Benjamin Scharf (drums) could buy a drink (legally).
Spud Cannon’s forthcoming third full-length, Good Kids Make Bad Apples, bristles with an immediacy inspired in-part by all-night, definitely-allowed recording sessions at the Vassar squash courts. Each song recorded in the Wall of Sound-style court are pure takes capturing the energy of the Spud Cannon live experience in its purest form to date. The first single "Juno" from the upcoming album is an electric, feel-good track that pulls inspiration from nights at Vassar, the movie Juno, and band member Lucy's bunny (who is featured on the cover). The track features Spud Cannon's classic hard hitting baseline and bold drumming while also showcasing a new, exciting sound from the group.
Returning from a stressful tour that nearly broke them apart for good, the album’s nine songs find the band locked in on the other side of turmoil stronger than ever. Reflections on relationships, knowing one’s worth, or simply just wanting to have a good time are all spun through Spud Cannon’s infectious rock sound. Like a good friend who knows exactly how to cheer you up or clock an ex from across the room and steer you away, Good Kids Make Bad Apples is a hand on the shoulder in the times that led you to yourself.
