“We are SO excited for our first official US headline tour supporting our debut album. Every night will be a performance you will never forget. For better or for worse. ��” says lead singer Josh Katz.

For each ticket sold, $1 per ticket will be donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS), an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Their mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.

On the band’s decision to work with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Katz explains, “I’m a vegan. Animal rights are very important to me, but the bigger picture is that all life has value and my goal is to try to get, not just our fanbase, but the world, to think in those terms. We speak to many issues on the album but this one speaks to my heart and that’s why we decided to incorporate a charitable donation into this tour. Sea Shepherd is the ideal choice for making changes on a global scale.”

OK, I’M Sick landed #1 on Alternative New Artist Album, #3 Alternative Album andBillboard Top 200 charts. PRESS HERE to listen to OK, I’M SICK, all of which the band wrote and recorded in Los Angeles. Through their deeply personal music, the album navigates subjects including anxiety, abuse, depression, social media and politics. The band produced a body of work that perfectly encapsulated the issues of their time.

The LA rockers recently scored their second consecutive #1 Hit on Mediabase at Active Rock and #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Charts with their single “Heroin,” which followed in the footsteps of their first #1 for debut single “Ghost.” Following the chart success, their current single “Promise Me” is now  #30 on the Alternative charts while they just released “The Jester” to Active Rock Radio where upon its arrival it was the most added song for the week and has quickly ascended inside the Top 30 on the Active Rock charts.

Badflower release their new track “Promise Me” off their debut album OK, I’M SICK out February 22 via Big Machine/John Varvatos Records today. The song’s expressive lyrics and smooth guitar riffs punctuate its message about holding on to love and the hope of youth. “Promise Me” is now available along with “Heroin,” “Ghost,” and “x ANA x” when fans preorder the album. PRESS HERE to listen to the track and PRESS HERE to preorder the album.

“Promise Me” marks the fourth offering from the band’s highly anticipated debut album. The song was co-written by bandmates Josh Katz, Joey Morrow, Alex Espiritu and Anthony Sonetti along with Noah Shain who also produced the track.

“This is probably my favorite song on the album. Not only because it’s a departure from what we normally do musically and lyrically, but because it really feels like a story with a beginning, middle, and end. It describes the feeling of growing up, losing youth and losing love – which is a simple concept that scares the hell out of me.” – Josh Katz, Singer of Badflower

Badflower has made headlines in the past year as they are nominated for an iHeart Radio Award for Best New Rock / Alternative Artist, scored a #1 with their song “Ghost” at Active Rock, racked up nearly 9 million views on the music video for “Ghost,” and performed the hit on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The song landed at No. 7 on Billboard’s 2018 Year-End Mainstream Rock Songs Chart and Loudwire proclaimed “Badflower could be one of rock’s next biggest bands” as they placed “Ghost” on their list of the “40 Best Hard Rock Songs of 2018.”

Their current single “Heroin” is inside the Top 15 and climbing at Rock Radio as the band prepares to release their debut album OK, I’M SICK later this month. Upon release the song claimed the #1 most added at rock radio in its first week and also landed the band on the cover of Spotify’s “Rock This” playlist with top placement. Earlier this week, the Southern California rockers performed a stripped down set of both “Ghost” and “Heroin” for fans on Billboard LiveClick here to watch.

The band will soon be out on the road with Nothing More’s THE TRUTH TOUR followed by Shinedown’s ATTENTION ATTENTION Tour. For ticket information and a complete list of upcoming tour dates, visit Badflowermusic.com.

Southern California rockers BADFLOWER today released “Heroin,” the third offering from their forthcoming debut album OK, I’M SICK – due out February 22, 2019 via Big Machine/John Varvatos Records. Frontman Josh Katz produced and co-wrote “Heroin,” which is ripe with slow burn verses and heavy-hitting choruses that put the band’s versatility on full display. The emotional track is available now to fans who pre-order the album here: https://badflower.lnk.to/OKISWE.

Josh describes the process saying “we took a different approach with this song than the others on the album. We’ve been playing it for so many years and we didn’t want to over-think the production so we decided to self produce the song at our house in the desert in 24 hours. We didn’t want it to sound perfect, we wanted to keep it raw.”

In addition to Josh, “Heroin” was co-written by Joey Morrow, Alex Espiritu, and Anthony Sonetti. Preceding “Heroin” are chart topper “Ghost” and “x ANA x”, initial offerings the band conceptualized alongside the complete set of songs they wrote and recorded for OK, I’M SICK in Los Angeles with executive producer credits attributed to Scott Borchetta and John Varvatos.

As lead single “Ghost” claimed the No. 1 spot on the Active Rock Radio Mediabase Chart and is currently inside the Top 25 at Alt Radio and growing, Badflower has continued to gain traction even beyond the airwaves. Bitingly exposed lyrics and surging delivery have captivated audiences at live shows and with personal responses online as the topic of suicide universally unites so many. Forbes affirms, “‘Ghost’ has connected at the absolute core of where music hits fans.” With an intense performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Badflower was compelled to record a more intimate version.

Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents added, “I’m excited to have Prophets of Rage close out the festival. After seeing them in a small setting in LA, I couldn’t wait to get them added to our festivals this fall. Tom, Tim, and Brad from Rage Against The Machine, along with Chuck D and DJ Lord from Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill, playing the hits that made Rage one of the most iconic bands in history is a special thing to see. Adding that along with Ozzy Osbourne, Incubus, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Rise Against, Stone Sour…how could you miss this lineup?
