Although the band members are relatively young, Bad Suns have taken cues for their sound from '70s and '80s post-punk pioneers like The Cure and Elvis Costello, blending the angsty songwriting influences from those legends with a brighter, more contemporary hook-heavy indie rock sound. Bad Suns' debut single, "Cardiac Arrest," went viral in 2013, leading to a deal with Vagrant Records, the 2014 release of the Transpose EP, as well as their debut album Language & Perspective, which hit #24 on the Billboard 200 and led to massive tours supporting Halsey and The Neighbourhood. Shortly after, a tour with the 1975 and appearances at festivals like SXSW and Coachella followed as they readied their sophomore album, Disappear Here, which released in September 2016.

Their third full-length album, Mystic Truth, gets its title from a piece of art that vocalist Christo Bowman stumbled upon while visiting London’s Tate Modern on tour. Created by Bruce Nauman in 1967, the neon-and-glass piece spells out a possibly paradoxical statement in blue spiraled cursive: “The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths.”

“I thought that connected back to the message of the record, which is about finding the extraordinary in very simple things, even though we’re living in a very dark time right now,” says Bowman, whose bandmates include guitarist Ray Libby, bassist Gavin Bennett, and drummer Miles Morris. “Instead of succumbing to that darkness, I think you’ve got to try to hold onto some optimism, and try to uncover those simple miracles so you don’t lose the plot of what’s really important.”

Newly signed to Epitaph Records, Bad Suns found the making of Mystic Truth to be especially charmed. “Recording this album was like a never-ending dream—there were times when it felt like we were pulling songs out of the air,” he says.

Over the years, Bad Suns have invited those bursts of inspiration by endlessly opening themselves up to new ideas, often by immersing themselves in art or literature—“Starjumper,” for instance, references a passage from Russian novelist Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita. That approach undeniably shaped the emotional undercurrent of Mystic Truth, an album both intimate and universal in scope.
