Gainesville, FL punk rock ‘n’ roll band Mike & The Nerve have just dropped their latest track, “Bad News”. The single is a straightforward, punk-tinged rock track true to the band’s Gainesville roots. Lyrically, “Bad News” is about temptation in its many awful forms and the struggle to resist it when we’re at our lowest. “In the context of the song, this temptation is personified as a charismatic friend who is ‘bad news’ for the narrator,” explains the band, “Meaning, they’re nothing but trouble.“

The track is the first single from the band’s upcoming 12-track studio album Watershed Drive, due for release on September 17th. Mike & The Nerve have also released footage of their time spent recording “Bad News” for an accompanying music video. “Recording this song was a great experience. It was one of the quicker songs to record in the studio, and everyone crushed it on their performances,” says the band, “The music video we did for it was relatively low-key too. Mostly a compilation of footage from our time recording the song in the studio. We think the camaraderie we all felt during that experience comes through in the video.”
