LOS ANGELES, CA (July 13, 2020) – This is 30. We’re still here. We’re still dirty. Southern California Rockers BADFLOWER are direct with the first single off their forthcoming sophomore album on Big Machine/John Varvatos Records. The bold track, fittingly titled “30” is due on Friday (7/17), the same date frontman Josh Katz celebrates the milestone birthday. Written and produced by Katz, Joey Morrow’s deliberate guitar riff is a bold start to the track as bassist Alex Espiritu and drummer Anthony Sonetti build around Katz’s vocals charging between angst and ease.
The weekend festivities continue on Saturday (7/18) as Badflower presents and performs at S.H.I.T. (So Happy I’m Thirty) Fest via Livestream at// beginning at 4:00 PM EST. The concept was born out of the realization three members had July birthdays and all they wanted to do was play live music with their friends while supporting others. Katz will host the event also featuring Dead Sara, Bones UK and Dead Poet Society. Tickets for S.H.I.T Fest are available at and proceeds from sales will be split between two important causes – the fight to end immigration detention through Freedom For Immigrants ( and the culture surrounding mental health through 320 Changes Direction ( The standard stream is $9 or supporters can choose an upgraded package for $30, which includes a special exclusive commemorative t-shirt.
With powerful vocals and striking lyrics, Badflower is one of today’s most buzzed-about Rock bands. Their jarring theatrical delivery and unshakable improvising finds the emerging LA-based band amplifying the success of their debut album OK, I’M SICK, which featured three Rock chart-toppers – “Ghost,” “Heroin” and “The Jester.” Through their deeply personal music, Badflower navigates anxiety, abuse, depression, social media and politics. The band produced a body of work that perfectly encapsulates the issues of their time and blends brutal honesty with high intensity. The critically-acclaimed, 13-track project landed at No. 1 on Alternative New Artist Album, No. 3 Alternative Album and on the Billboard Top 200 charts.
