Bad Ideas call it a day, and share unreleased album

By Glen Bushell

In sad news, Lincoln indie/punk band, Bad Ideas, have announced they are calling it a day.

The band were due to release their self-titled album later in the year, but have since made it available online as the band comes to an end. Vocalist Sam Cook said the following of the bands break-up:

“As the founding member of Bad Ideas all of five years ago, and the main catalyst in this decision, Ive been nominated to write this- but I will try to speak for us as a collective as much as possible here… Bad Ideas has been a massive part of our lives. We’ve had endless amazing experiences, and met countless wonderful people in many different parts of the world. When you’re working on projects like this that take up so much energy and time, and pay off in ways other than excessive financial reward, the people that understand what you’re doing and why will often come out of the woodwork. We’ve had incredible support, understanding, and love from so many of these creative, caring and marvellous individuals, and first and foremost- THANK YOU to you all!

The point comes with many things in life where you know you need to stop, and unfortunately I have found myself at this place with Bad ideas. Its not been an easy realisation, and to my bandmates- Im sorry, and thank you for the past couple of years and all we’ve shared and done.

We made a record last summer that we’ve not managed to release yet. Its something we poured a huge amount of time, love, and energy into, and were immensely proud of it. At this juncture it feels appropriate to finally share it with the wider world- We hope you love it as much as we do!”

You can listen to Bad Ideas self-titled – and final – album below. We wish them all the best with whatever they go on to do next.
