Freshly signed to state51, Blue Bendy have today released their debut for the label in the form of new single ‘Mr Bubblegum’. In keeping with the six-piece’s welcome rejection of labels, categories, or expectations, the track arrives accompanied by a playful video that guides us through parodied dating app profiles of each band member. Explaining the inspiration behind ‘Mr Bubblegum’, vocalist Arthur Nolan has said: “Have you ever been set dressing for a Zara kids photo shoot? We have and it’s hell when you’re in the midst of a messy breakup.”

Later this week, Blue Bendy are also hitting the road to support Squid for a run of shows around the UK and Ireland, concluding with a turn at London’s Troxy on 1st November. Catch them on the following dates, and watch the video for ‘Mr Bubblegum’ below:
