It’s time for a sugar rush, with Candy Ambulance’s new EP Spray out today! A fast-paced and delicious six-track EP immerses you in a delicious blend of gritty grunge/punk, with plenty of pop hooks and indie rock riffs to always keep you coming back for more. Spray premiered on PureGrainAudio.com, who said, “the six-track recording hearkens back to the ’90s best alt acts while still sounding fresh and innovative.”
The band described Spray as, “an EP that captures us at our current best. We’re working, always on getting better at recording, writing and producing the music that we love.” The band had the luxury of recording in their own home studio, built up over the years by bassist Jesse Bolduc, who works as a sound engineer. “We have the means to record ourselves, and other bands (like our friends Asa Morris and The Mess) at home from touring and online sales. It’s, how they say, hashtag f*-ing blessed,” the band commented on their fortunate situation.
To celebrate their new release, the band will hit the road for a two-month tour across regions of the eastern and midwestern U.S.; dates below. “Touring is such a badass experience that we look forward to more each time we get out there,” they said. “Like, ‘who will we meet/where will we sleep/how long can we survive on hard boiled eggs and PBR?’. Not everyone’s ideal way to spend time but we thrive on it.”
With entertaining, in-your-face live shows full of unabashed antics and fun, the band are not one to miss if they’re headed your way! Spray can be ordered in digital and physical format on Bandcamp, and be found on Spotify, iTunes and all major digital retailers now!
