Bad Plans 2020

Today, HM is proud to premiere the newest lyric video from Bad Plans for their banger, “Troubled Young Soul.” The band is the brainchild of Jesse Hardiek, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of the music, formed about a year ago out of Nashville, TN.

With “Troubled Young Soul,” Hardiek set out to refit the way he approached mental health from the way it was approached as he was growing up. Isolated and without words to describe the way he felt, it wouldn’t be until much later, as an adult, when he would be able to identify what “social anxiety disorder” truly was.

We spoke with Hardiek about the new song:

“What I had was social anxiety disorder, and it was much deeper than just being ‘shy’ or ‘awkward.’ ‘Troubled Young Soul’ is a song about just that. It’s all those feelings that people with social anxiety disorder battle with on a daily basis spilled out into one song. It’s that song I wish I could’ve heard when I was younger, so I could know that other people feel the same way.”

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
