Santa Barbara’s Versus The World have joined the SBÄM Records family. The band’s upcoming Cameron Webb -produced album ‘The Bastards Live Forever’ will be released in May 2023. On February 24, the first of four singles prior to the album will be released.
“I can’t tell you how much work went into this collection of songs. I’d always been taught that if what you were working on wasn’t (what you thought) was your best… start over. Never put anything into the world that you were not absolutely sure of,” says singer Donald Ashley Spence.
And that is what happened – ‘The Bastards Live Forever’ is due May 2023 via SBÄM Records and consists of 11 songs crafted to perfection. Versus The World‘s unique style of melodic post-punk elevates every member’s skill from their other projects including Chris Flippin of Lagwagon. Obviously Versus The World are not all about musical craft but you can hear a passion and an urge to scream out deeply rooted feelings in every syllable throughout the record.
