Ahead of their upcoming massive No Place Like Home fall tour, Badflower launched a scathing new track, “Teacher Has A Gun.” Touching on a uniquely American fear and intertwining the notion with technology, the band highlights paranoia in this energetic modern rock bop and accompanying music video.

Frontman Josh Katz expands upon the meaning of the song sharing, “Feeling like everyone’s out to get you and that everyone’s violent and that everybody has a gun, literally or figuratively, is a real feeling for a lot of people—especially in America. We spun that in a way that made sense for us and in the way we make art, and we hope people like it.”

Katz continues, “I think the cohesiveness of our band is in our honesty—the unapologetic nature of it, and as long as that’s there, then to me, we’ve done our jobs.”

Badflower is heading out on a massive fall 2024 tour featuring Slothrust and Missio as support. The 29-show No Place Like Home Tour is scheduled to kick off on September 3 in Dallas, TX, and run through October 22 in Nashville, TN.
