Sunflower Bean Share New Song "Come For Me," Announce EP

Earlier this year, New York City-based trio Sunflower Bean released their excellent sophomore LP, Twentytwo in Blue, and today (Oct. 30) they’re announcing a follow-up. A new EP called King of the Dudes will arrive Jan. 25, 2019, on Mom + Pop, and the indie rockers have shared its first track, “Come For Me,” which you can listen to below.

Following Twentytwo in Blue’s lead, “Come For Me” is restless rock ‘n’ roll, though it’s a bit groovier than, say, “Burn It,” the LP’s riotous opening number. It’s danceable, but it’s not fluffy—frontwoman Julia Cumming releases the song’s lyrical interrogations in a fiery blast. “Do you really wanna waste my time?” she asks. “If you do, then do it right.”

“This song was inspired by inner strength, power and sexual freedom,” said the band in a statement. “In 2018 there is no time to waste and no time for shame. This song is a declaration of that. ‘Do you really want to come for me? Do you really want to waste my time?’ The song is a dare, a threat, and a beckoning.”

In addition to breaking the news about King of the Dudes today, Sunflower Bean also announced they’ll be touring with Interpol throughout the U.S. early next year. You can buy tickets here and find all of Sunflower Bean’s tour dates down below.

As the band said in a statement, King of the Dudes is all about flexing their musical muscle:

This EP does not give a fuck. It’s reactionary, and a sharpened response to our times. Death, birth, aggression, addiction, and power. Twentytwo In Blue allowed us to find our strength and on King Of The Dudes we use it, no holds barred.

Again, you can listen to “Come For Me” below, and Sunflower Bean’s 2016 Daytrotter Session further down. Keep scrolling for the King of the Dudes album art and tracklist, and the band’s tour dates. You can preorder King of the Dudes here.
