Bob Vylan To Release New Record, ‘Bob Dylan Presents The Price Of Life’ In 2022

London two-piece BOB VYLAN can today announce details of their hugely anticipated forthcoming new album ‘Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life’, which is set for release through their own Ghost Theatre record label on April 22nd, 2022.

Following on from the recent single ‘Pretty Songs’ (which garnered praise and support from the likes of NME, Kerrang, Radio 1 Rock Show and the mighty Iggy Pop on his brilliant 6music show), BOB VYLAN have also released a blistering, brand new track and video ‘GDP’, which is out and streaming everywhere now. 

Check out the video below.

Talking a bit about the new single ‘GDP’, vocalist Bobby Vylan explains “This single explores a lot of the topics we’re known for, racism, class, social struggles in a way that may not be so obvious on first listen but when you hear lines about friends being stabbed because they come from a place and live a lifestyle that encourages violence to get what you want, you can’t help but ask yourself “well how did that environment begin?”. The chorus tells you outright, “what good is talking about the GDP if I’m struggling to get by?”

Having been a band for around 4 years, the BOB VYLAN sound is ever evolving and crosses genres and sonic dimensions. They incorporate these multiple styles in their music in an attempt to bridge genres and subcultures together. Bob explains a bit more about the album, it’s themes and ideas for this next phase for BOB VYLAN“This project is allowing us the space to showcase different sides of our personalities. We don’t want to give the same thing over and over again, so we’re tackling topics in a different way this time. It’s serious and funny, it’s communal and obnoxious, it’s many things at any given time, and it’s a concept project. It explores the idea of paying your way through life and the expense of living in a society that places money above all else. It explores the places we’ve come from and the extremes we’ve seen people go to in order to survive. It also looks at the nuances around money in our society, the less obvious connections, like the world of advertising and art having to align with advertisers values in order to be given a platform, as well as the price of healthy eating, the cost of technology not necessarily on our pockets but on our lives.”

This band are all about community, and for them, their live show is a place where they can really express that. At each show, they start off with mediation and end with a group hug, but what’s between the meditative start and embracing end is a message delivered in a way that both Bobby and Bobbie feel has been missing. Live show wise, they have already been on a sold out UK headline tour (with support from Witch Fever and ZAND) in the summer, played at Reading and Leeds and ALT LDN festivals, been main support to Biffy Cylro through October/November and will be heading off to support The Offspring in arenas across the UK from later this week.
