Listen To Bully’s Intensely Rocking Sophomore Album ‘Losing’ In Full Ahead Of Its Release Date

Nashville rock group Bully announced their sophomore album Losing with a bang in August, when they shared the raging lead single “Feel The Same.” They followed that up with the equally rocking tracks “Running” and “Kills To Be Restrained,” and now, ahead of the record’s October 20th release on Sub Pop, the whole thing is streaming in full now over at NPR.

Losing — which was engineered and mixed by Bully singer, producer, and former Steve Albini intern Alicia Bognanno — deals with a lot of tough topics like relationships and illness, and Bognanno previously told us that for her, wearing her heart on her sleeve like that is the only worthwhile way to make music:

“To me, music is a personal and emotional thing, so if I was going to take emotion or personal situations out of it, then that would feel more like just a product, because it would just be an emotionless, senseless piece of music, which to me, isn’t real music at all.”
