JUST FRIENDS Announce new album 4th Album, “Gusher”

Critically lauded California funk rock band JUST FRIENDS has just revealed their highly anticipated fourth full-length album, “Gusher,” will be released on September 1st with Pure Noise Records. The band’s follow-up to last year’s acclaimed record “Hella” is the late summer jam you’ve been waiting for. Pre-order the album now and catch the band on tour later this summer/fall.

Melding elements of power-pop, punk, funk and hip-hop, “Gusher” is a confectious party record bursting memorable anthems that are made for singing along. Today, the band has debuted the album’s first single, “Life I’m Living In.” Stream it now at https://lnk.to/jfcrewfanclub and watch the music video linked below.

“Life I’m Living In” is an explosive and heartfelt anthem that celebrates life in all its chaotic stages. The narrative transmutes contending with the growing pains of life into finding liberation and love in the journey. A sobering reflection that develops into peace within the storm.

During lockdown, vocalist Sammy found himself forced to wrestle with the life changes that had, up until then, been left behind without much time to process. Aches and pains from his own actions, as well as actions against him, became an inescapable echo chamber during the mandatory isolation of the pandemic. The only way out was through, and over time, Sammy began to feel relief. What changed? His perspective. His time of reflection taught him that life is messy and it hurts, but the best we can do is offer ourselves and others grace. To move forward with integrity and share joy and Sprite with the people who stick around.

For vocalist Brond, the only constant has been change. An international immigrant, daughter of a single mom, she became accustomed to starting over. In “Life I’m Living In,” she reflects on the stark contrast between her life before Just Friends, and after. For her, this song is a celebration of just how bright the heart can shine with the right people around. How the most valuable victories in her life are simple-not giving up on herself and recognizing that the love and community around her are enough.
