about

DENTON TX – It's true, the moment you haven't been waiting for has finally arrived! Denton's BAD TIMES has set their new 4 song EP, “When I am Empty, Please Dispose of Me Properly,” for early November. Recorded with Britt Robisheaux at Eagle Audio in Fort Worth, the new EP comes loaded with four blistering, deft bursts of the catchiest rage you're likely to hear outside of hardcore.

The set begins railing against job insecurity in a way that is both twisted and sharp – it ends before you can catch your breath. After, you're lead into a tight dance number about an apocalyptic romance. You notice suburban mothers giving you the evil eye for having not been home from a night of drinking and hooking up with strangers. The set ends as you're set adrift into the Fatherlands, lost in a sandy sea of your own regret. Sonically, you're in Tom Petty meets Wire territory, but lyrically, you're in Joy Division country.

The EP is now available digitally, through bandcamp, and the self-released cassette will be available in November .

Track Name: Dead Horse
You tell me to get a job, but whatcha gonna do about it
You tell me to put some pants on, but then I just forget about it.

Ain't got much to say.
You always say the same thing
Track Name: When I Lose Sight of You
My love is like a year in a fallout shelter
Everything is safe and secure
There's no where to go
I won't let you go
Just afraid of what will happen
When it's safe to go outside
In the dead monuments and ruins
and the radiated light

Just afraid of what will happen
When the all-clear sounds
When I lose sight of you
I know you'll never return
When I lose sight of you
I know

Now, it's not what you expected
Being trapped down in one place
There's no where to go
But I got to let you go
Down in the darkness
I gave you everything
Bitter? Of course I am
But you don't owe me a goddamn thing

Just afraid of what will happen
When the all-clear sounds
When I lose sight of you
I know you'll never return
Track Name: Reeking of Love
I'm reeking of love and of cigarettes
I haven't been home, they've already guessed
They went to bed angry with their spouse
They didn't speak when they left the house
Now I've got a donut in my mouth

I'm reeking of love and of cigarettes
I haven't been home, they've already guessed
They went to bed angry with their spouse
They didn't speak when they left the house
Now I've got two donuts in my mouth

Here I am reeking of love
Here I am reeking of love
Here I am , Here I am
Track Name: Fatherlands
So many pictures
So much wasted time
Vicarious is
No way to live a life
I miss those moments
That I never had
I miss those people
That I barely met

And if you told me this is what it's like
I would have said it is all a lie
So I'll see you
Out there
In the distance
So I'll see you
Out there
In the Fatherlands

It doesn't meet my
expectations
I'm giving you my
my resignation
I see the footprints
Stamped by phantom feet
That desert sun is
Pointing right at me

And if you told me this is what it's like
I would have said it is all a lie
So I'll see you
Out there
In the distance
So I'll see you
Out there
In the Fatherlands


So I'll see you
Out there
In the distance
So I'll see you
Out there
In the Fatherlands
