Big Business to release new studio album “The Beast You Are” on April 12th 2019

Big Business The Beast You Are cover
Big Business, the Los Angeles-based duo of Jared Warren (bass/vocals) and Coady Willis (drums/vocals), release “The Beast You Are”, their fifth album, and first new music in nearly three years, on April 12th, 2019, via Joyful Noise Recordings.

Listen to the first single “Let Them Grind” below. Warren describes the track as “the perfect song for any situation in which a soundtrack for suppressing blood-boiling, ear-ringing anger is needed”.

“The Beast You Are” features the return of Big Business to its core two-piece incarnation. “It’s just better. We work faster, and we know what we’re both going for. It gives us more room to be weirder in certain aspects and try different things. It makes sense because that’s how we established ourselves in the beginning and how we learned to write songs together, it was just the two of us. Coming back to that lineup felt natural”, explains Willis.

Pre-orders for the thirteen-song album, including vinyl packages, are available now here, with “Let Them Grind” available as an instant download.
