Fresh off the heels of their sold-out Terminal 5 show in New York City earlier this month, alternative / electro-pop band CANNONS have shared their new song “Bad Tattoo” today via Columbia Records. The track, produced by Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Carrie Underwood, Mary J. Blige) and co-written by CANNONS, Elizondo, and Mikky Echo (Rihanna, Drake, Maroon 5), offers a fresh take on the Los Angeles band’s sound, showcasing their range and continued sonic growth. Listen HERE and watch the accompanying visualizer HERE. In speaking about the track, CANNONS frontwoman Michelle Joy says: “’Bad Tattoo’ is a song about life-changing moments that define us and how we hold the power to turn emotional scars into art. It’s about owning your entire story, specifically the painful moments, even if they leave a permanent mark or an emotional scar similar to a tattoo. It’s in those times that we are invited to stop, pay attention, and take stock of our life, its meaning, and purpose. ‘Bad Tattoo’ is about choosing not to cover up those moments or feel shame, and instead, loving them because they are a part of your story and made you who you are.” “Bad Tattoo” is lifted from CANNONS’ forthcoming LP Heartbeat Highway due later this year and follows lead singles “Desire” and “Loving You,” which is Top 20 at Alternative radio. The band has been on a massive headline tour previewing songs from the new album to sold-out crowds across the US & Canada. After playing Coachella and making their television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in April, ‘The Heartbeat Highway Tour’ kicked off last month and has seen CANNONS perform some of their largest headline shows to date. The band has a special hometown performance at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on 9/29 before wrapping the North American leg at Honolulu’s The Republik on 10/3. CANNONS will then bring ‘The Heartbeat Highway Tour’ overseas for their first-ever shows in Japan and Australia. See all remaining dates below and stay tuned for more from CANNONS coming soon!
