Bad Mary Releases New Song “The Floor Is Lava”
New York-based punk rock band Bad Mary, consisting of Amanda Mac (vocals), Mike Staub (bass), Bill Mac (drums) and David Henderson (guitar), released a new song “The Floor Is Lava” along with a music video on May 31, 2022.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming EP “Trash and Glamour”, following “Light It Up”.
David Henderson said of the song, “The song was inspired by my freshman design class at Hofstra University. I split them into teams and have each team create a board game as their final project – we play the games on the last day of class. One team this year made The Floor is Lava board game. After that, the phrase was just knocking around in my head for a few months until one day the song popped out. The cool thing is, a few of the students from that class helped shoot the video and even make an appearance jumping on stuff. Doesn't mean their grades will be any better though, still got final projects due this semester.”
- He continued, “You know, I'm not sure the world has been so crazy and scary before in my lifetime. We're in the third year of a global pandemic, Russia is on the march again, and oh yeah, the icecaps are literally melting. So, I wanted to write a song that had nothing to do with anything! You've got two minutes and 39 seconds to forget all your problems and existential threats and just have fun jumping on the furniture”.
Amanda Mac added, “After the past two-three years being so grim and wild, I'm happy to be back to writing and making silly songs again. But the floor IS lava!…we all knew it… we're just here to remind you.”
The new EP is expected to be released this fall.
