Last April, Austin's own Big Loser released love you, barely living with indie label Black Numbers. The album showcased the bands ability to combine anthemic rock with hints of emo much like The Menzingers, Spanish Love Songs, and early The Gaslight Anthem.
While the album was only available on CD and digitally upon initial release, love you, barely living is going to be available on vinyl as of February 26th, 2021. The limited edition pressing is now available for pre-order here. To celebrate the vinyl release, Chase D. Spruiell teamed up with Sheilava to record two acoustic performances. “post-almost-overdose” appears on love you, barely living and the second performance is a cover of “I Love You” by Billie Eilish. Both videos are streaming now at Chorus.FM. Big Loser will also be holding a live acoustic set + giveaway on February 25th, 2021.
Big Loser is an American rock band formed by frontman Chase D. Spruiell. Pairing hard hitting lyrics with glistening song arrangements the band has quickly earned a seal of approval in the underground scene. Love You, Barely Living is their Black Numbers debut and everything about it is big. Haunting guitars, roomy drums, and epic sing-along’s set the tone for Chase and the rest of Big Loser to showcase their songwriting skills. Love You, Barely Living plays like a coming of age film where no matter how many times the protagonist falls you just know they are going to be alright in the end.
