PJ BOND – Song Premier: Video / Download at Alternative Press

Watch live video / Download mp3 forI’m In A Bad Way
• Two additional tracks to debut @ Alternative Press in coming weeks
• Currently touring Europe, UK (11/13 – 12/20)


The well-traveled PJ Bond has teamed up with Alternative Press to premier a brand new song, “I’m In A Bad Way.” You can watch PJ and his brother, Brian Bond, perform the track live in Lynchburg, Virginia on a stopover during their recent tour to the FEST in Gainesville, FL. The song can also be downloaded in mp3 format here.

This new offering – which will likely appear on a TBD 2012 vinyl release from Black Numbers – is one of three new songs that will make their debut at Alternative Press over the course of the next two weeks. Check back to the magazine’s website on November 19th and 26th for video / mp3 premiers of “Nevermind” and “Reasons.”

Included with the premier of “I’m In A Bad Way” are the lyrics and a written intro from the always-insightful Bond as he discusses playing music, traveling the world and the overwhelming generosity of the folks he’s met along the way. He also gives a detailed description of the songwriting process and how it came to fruition. It’s an engaging read from a man whose lifestyle and choices not only embody the true nature of Punk Rock but who is always searching for new and creative ways to connect with music fans and people in general.

On that note, Bond is once again circling the globe, this time playing shows across Europe and the UK for the next five weeks. Tour dates are below and as always, if you’d like to attend a show, talk to PJ or maybe give him a couch to crash on, email me here or contact PJ directly here.

PJ Bond is the former front man for Outsmarting Simon (Triple Crown Records) and Marigold, and the New Brunswick, NJ native has also played in The Color Fred and Communipaw. His last two releases – the 2009 full-length You Didn’t Know I Was Alphabetical and a more recent 7-song live EP, 22 April: Vienna, Austria – are available in various formats from Black Numbers. Bond’s homespun brand of indie rock and Americana is a lush and organic affair, punctuated by strikingly honest lyrics that are deeply personal yet touch on universally understood themes. If you’re able to catch him live, you’ll be treated to a heartfelt slice of creaky, back porch Americana tossed against a perfectly catchy pop backdrop. Still, Bond tosses in a bit of everything, from rustic, uptempo alt-country rockers to haunting, melancholy acoustic offerings and sweetly infectious indie numbers. For fans of Rocky Votolato, Neutral Milk Hotel, Whiskeytown and Elliott Smith.
