Los Angeles pop-rock trio Beauty School Dropout stole our heart as the blink-182 North American tour opener, and are blessing our Friday with their brand new album READY TO EAT. Across the nine tracks including hit single “beautiful waste,” the band reveals their modern alternative prowess, setting the stage for the genre’s future.

READY TO EAT is the culmination of our high highs, low lows and everything in between,” says the band. “The album is a sonic spiral through our personal struggles with addiction, relationships and love (or lack thereof). The album is meant to be a reflection of our growth and our intentions to overcome every obstacle that life throws our way,” the band says.

They continue by sharing, “From the last album to this one we have traveled the world, performed in places we never felt possible, gained fans all over but still have to deal with the trials and tribulations that are being a band putting 500% into our career. As much as it looks from the outside that our lives are skyrocketing, we are still dealing with the same issues we have been for years, only amplified. This album is our purge to our fans and an expansion and growth from where we started and a glimpse into where we are going.”

The new album also includes Beauty School Dropout‘s dynamic collab with Jaden Hossler, “FREAK.” idobi Radio had the pleasure of hosting the artists to perform an unplugged version of the single at idobi Studios. You can check out the full performance here.
