Nashville rockers Bully got some buzz (including from us) around the time they played CMJ, and that buzz turned into year-end accolades when they made Gorilla vs Bear's favorite songs of 2014 list and Vulture's 10 Female Punk Songs You Need to Hear in 2014 list. They also gave us their list of 2014 favorites, which you can read below. They'll be on tour again this month, including shows opening for Cloud Nothings, Hamilton Leithauser and Strand of Oaks. After those dates, they'll headline their own show in NYC on January 26 at Pianos. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

You can check that out, along with All dates are listed, with a video from their 2014 EP, below...
