“It’s the opening song to a stunning record, one that won’t leave your head (or your headphones) any time soon. Fruit Bats is back, and that’s a very good thing.” -OPB
“ If you’ve loved the band, as so many already have, you’ll love this, and if you haven’t yet heard Fruit Bats, then Absolute Loser is a terrific place to start.” -KEXP
“[On Delusions of Grand Fur], Rogue Wave offer an album that’s both innovative and approachable….this may be the best album I’ve heard so far this year.” –PopMatters
Today, Team Coco has the premiere of Fruit Bats' video for "Humbug Mountain Song," which features Eric D Johnson "losing and finding himself, eating mud, wrestling beasts, seeing eagles, going to the ocean, going to the mountain." We are so excited to share this master class in the art of music video making. Enjoy here.
"With its rolling guitar line and ambient backdrop, the song recalls fellow Chicago folkies Califone (with whom Johnson played for a stint), while Johnson’s bright vocal suggests sunnier times ahead.”
Noisey premiered the new Rogue Wave track "California Bride," yesterday and said "It’s a somber yet poppy track, with something very Lana Del Rey about it."
As if one announcement this week wasn't enough: Absolute Loser -- Fruit Bats' first studio album in 5 years -- will be released on May 13, 2016!
Welcome, Rogue Wave, to the Easy Sound family! We’re super excited to release the new record, Delusions of Grand Fur - available 4/29!
