The Bourgeois - "Summer of George" (audio) (premiere)

“Summer of George” rocks like it’s 2007, their form of alt-metal ticking all the boxes which made bands like Evans Blue and Mudvayne so good.

The Bourgeois' “Summer of George” rocks like it’s 2007, their form of alt-metal ticking all the boxes which made bands like Evans Blue and Mudvayne so good. Drop-tuned guitars noodle, drums skitter forward, and lead singer Zach Mobley drawls seethingly over it all. It’s an immersive song, bass and guitar enveloping in the verse and overpowering in the chorus. It’s a time-tested style, and if “Summer of George” is any indication, it’ll continue testing well for a while.

“Summer of George is a dark look at how the hope and optimism that accompany summer can quickly be replaced by laziness and apathy,” says the band.

Designer Genes releases today, July 29.
