Chicago hardcore band Buggin have been making their mark for a bit, and now they've finally announced their anticipated debut album, Concrete Cowboys. It's due June 2 via Flatspot Records, and we're thrilled to be launching an exclusive transparent green + neon violet moon phase vinyl variant, limited to just 100 copies! Pre-order yours while they last. Here's a mockup:


The album's lead single is "All Eyes On You," and it's a great example of Buggin's ability to deliver bold aggression in a punchy, inviting way. It features guest vocals from Jordan Moten of fellow Chicago-based Flatspot Records band Kharma, and Buggin vocalist Bryanna Bennett says, "This one is about people that are annoying on the internet whether it’s spreading horrible misinformation online or oversharing or creating fake personas for attention and clout. These people want all eyes on them." Listen and watch the Lars Juveland-directed video below. The album was produced by Andy Nelson and mastered by Brad Boatright.

Buggin are playing their label Flatspot Records' sold-out Flatspot World showcase in Brooklyn this Saturday, April 8 (with Scowl, Speed, End It, Regulate, and more), Detroit's Tied Down fest, and the UK's Outbreak Fest, and then doing a UK/Europe tour with Buffalo's Spaced.
