THE BARREN MARYS release their third studio full-length album “WIRED WRONG” on May 24th with VIOLATED RECORDS releasing the album on CD, SUICIDE BONG TAPES covering the limited-edition cassette tape release, and digitally by FRANKENSENSE RECORDS. They’re also releasing a limited-edition 7” vinyl single for “Roaches,” accompanied by a music video from Trenton’s own D.I.WHY? Films.
The album was recorded in two days at Philadelphia’s PERMANENT HEARING DAMAGE with prolific engineer Steve Roche. The album features art by local artist Pat Higgins.
“WIRED WRONG” starts off with the one-two punch of ‘Good Time’ and ‘It’s Gonna Suck,’ exploring the combination of positive and hopeless thoughts about the future. ‘Fascists’ deals with the pitfalls of pointing fingers and ‘Couch’ tells the story of a house guest who won’t go away. Other songs on the record focus on local pizza shops, alcohol, justice, fascism, political uncertainty, virtue signaling, roach infestations, fad diets, breakups, and more.
