Texas’s favourite pop punk quartet Bowling For Soup are treating us to a double UK return in April and May, and if that wasn’t enough we’ve not got long to wait now until we get brand new music!
Their new single, I wanna Be Brad Pitt, (which you can pre-save here) will be hitting your playlists on 25th February and pays homage to the Oscar Winning actor in the iconic Bowling For Soup style. Gearing us up for this new release Jaret Reddick shared why the quartet have pulled together this fun new track for one of Hollywood’s finest:
“Everyone who knows me, knows I love Brad Pitt. I got this chorus in my head while driving one day, and really, the rest kinda just wrote itself. I wanted the song to be a thoughtful tribute and not sacrifice the homage by making fun of him or things in his life. So that’s the direction I went and when it still got laughs from the band, I knew I had hit it out of the park.”
This latest track joins a new set of singles released by Bowling For Soup over the last few years. Recent releases have included global hit Alexa Bliss, Getting Old Sucks (But Everybody’s Doing It) and the most recent release Killin’ ‘Em With Kindness.
With Bowling For Soup there is always a huge does of fun and incredibly catchy tracks. You’re always given a blast of nostalgia and it’s even better when you’ve not heard their music in a while. It’s almost impossible to not sing along to whatever track is playing and theres no doubt I Wanna Be Brad Pitt will be no different.
With COVID-19 causing tours to be rescheduled, the UK is getting a double dose of Bowling For Soup This Spring. April will see the full band on their Crowdsurf The UK Tour supported by Lit and The Dollyrots and DJ Matt Stocks.
