Today is the day! Bearings have finally shared their third full-length album, The Best Part About Being Human today via Pure Noise Records. With all of the overwhelming and depressing things going on in the world, it is nice to have a record that distracts from that noise. This album is a straight-up good time, offering tracks that feel cozy, silly, and safe.

“The Best Part About Being Human is being alive and the second best part is writing an upbeat and exciting record with your brothers in a small house in North Hollywood,” says the band. “This record was us figuring out what we really wanted to play live, what got us excited, and I think we found that. It had to be something we could play in its entirety live if we wanted and it would work. It’s got melancholy chorus’s and the wordy verses. It really feels like we were able to experiment while also honing in on what we do well and creating something both us and our fans will be proud of.”

They continue, “We just wanted to make a fun record. Sometimes when an album is so thought out, it’s got to be as good as American Idiot or it comes off as trying too hard. I think we did new things without sending it into outer space. To me, this record sounds like how I felt when I was in grade 10 listening to blink-182: not too serious, just a good time and able to open up a little circle pit. I think we succeeded in writing songs we can play in a basement or in front of 2,000 people.”
