New York alternative punk band Bad Mary has released a re-recorded mix of their song “Better Days.” Stream it on your favourite platform. The song is the second release from their Better(er) Days EP, a collection of re-recorded and remixed versions of the songs from their first album, Better Days, in celebration of its tenth anniversary.

Singer Amanda Mac states:

“‘Better Days’ is a song about trying your hardest and just feeling like nothing is working out. We’ve all been there. We as people… we overthink, we feel paralyzed, we can feel like nothing is going our way. But the only thing to do is keep moving forward and hope that there are better (or maybe even betterER) days ahead. This song continues to mean more to me every day, and I love that it’s been with us since the beginning.”

Bad Mary is Mike Staub (bass/vocals), Amanda Mac (vocals), Bill Mac (drums), and David Henderson (guitar). Their music has been showcased on SiriusXM’s Underground Garage, with “It’s All Trash” receiving the New Music Spotlight and both “It’s All Trash” and “Vibe-icide” earning the title of Coolest Song In The World in 2023. Additionally, “Better Days” was recently selected for both the New Music Spotlight and Coolest Song In The World.

When asked about the upcoming album release, Staub shares:

“For Better(er) Days we wanted to revisit some of our favourites from our first record and rerecord them to celebrate the album’s tenth anniversary. We love those songs and so many of them are still in our live sets, but we wanted to have versions of those songs that matched the recording and production on our later stuff. We think it’s a fun way to celebrate the album and we hope you like these new versions.”

Better(er) Days will be released in the summer of 2024. The band is writing and recording new songs to be released later this year.
