Last week, we told you about bAd bAd‘s high profile legal dispute with Steven Tyler’s daughter over their name that started quite ugly, but ended as amicably as it possibly could, with the Tyler camp graciously offering to change their name and letting our local favorites move forward as bAd bAd. Well, bAd bAd has taken full advantage of securing their name, dropping the first single from their upcoming LP, which is set for a summer release. “Creatures” builds on bAd bAd’s signature sound, described by the band as a song “about post apocalyptic dogs leaping over melted robots on nuclear beaches. Hurray!” Listen below, and catch bAd bAd at several shows around the bay over the next couple of months, including Saturday night at Amnesia and May 18 at Eli’s Mile High in Oakland.
