By on January 8, 2013


Pittsburgh based pop-punkers Before You released their latest single “Bad Habits and the Sunshine State” today. The quartet unveiled their DIY acoustic video version last month (link above) and plan on releasing an official music video for the track in the coming weeks. The song features special guest vocals from fellow Pittsburgh pop-punker Steven Soboslai of Punchline and was recorded at Bad Boxes Studios with Harrison Wargo. When asked about creating the Bad Habits single with Steven Soboslai, bassist/vocalist Philip Arena commented, “I have been a fan of [Steven] since I was 15, and it was an extreme honor to have him work with us on Pre-Production and then later make an appearance on Meet Me at Whisper Lake. This song is my favorite song of mine to date and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it.” Stream/Embed ‘Bad Habits and the Sunshine State’ Single here:
