Sunflower Bean share the new song, “Crisis Fest”.


Sunflower Bean will release their sophomore album, Twentytwo in Blue on March 23rd via Mom + Pop. The new album arrives when all three members of the NY-based trio will be 22-years-old. Also, the new album arrives almost two years and two months after the release of their 2016 debut album Human Ceremony. So that’s the significance of the whole ’22’ thing. Today, the band have shared the album’s first single, “Crisis Fest”, a punchy little jam that gets the blood pumping. Check it out below.

Sunflower Bean on the new song:

This last year was extremely alarming, traumatic, and politically volatile. While writing this album, we often reflected back on the people we met while on tour. We felt a strong kinship with the audiences that came to see us all over the country, and we wanted to write a song for them – something to capture the anxieties of an uncertain future. “Crisis Fest” is less about politics and more about the power of us, the young people in this country.
