Chicago hardcore band Buggin have announced their long-awaited first full-length, Concrete Cowboys, is set for release on June 2nd via Flatspot Records. The songs are vibrant, groovy, and real, mixing more playful elements with cathartic moments. The first taste comes in the shape of All Eyes On You, a blistering track bringing to mind bands like Bad Brains and Righteous Jams. Vocalist Bryanna Bennett gives a typically punchy delivery, and they are joined halfway through the song by labelmate and fellow Chicagoan & Kharma vocalist, Jordan Moten.

Buggin have created an enthralling 12 songs, on tracks like Snack Run and The Customer Is Always Wrong it’s clear the band aren’t afraid to have a little fun while singing about everyday occurrences. They also offer up a more serious side with Hard 2 Kill, written as a self-empowerment anthem, and Not Yours delves into the tokenization of women and non-binary folks in the hardcore scene. Buggin have also announced they will be heading to Europe for the first time this summer alongside Spaced.


“This one is about people that are annoying on the internet whether it’s spreading horrible misinformation online or oversharing or creating fake personas for attention and clout. These people want all eyes on them.” (Vocalist Bryanna Bennett)
