Aggro Performance Shot

Hurts to Laugh is Nashville’s gnarliest band.  Under the spiritual leadership of songwriter guitarist Cliff Cobain, the group has delivered three national tours, produced four music videos, and debuts a dramatic line-up change.  Only a year after releasing the acclaimed full-length “Meet You Underground”, ‘The Laugh’ are back with an emphatic nine-song declaration of dogged self-determination: “Hope It Works Out”. Honoring the band’s roots in punk rock and skateboarding, Cobain enlists bassist Stevie Ray Ramone and drummer Buddy Valens to aid in his efforts to reach a wider audience in the name of fun and spontaneity.  The collaboration among new bandmates and producer Mike Purcell has strengthened the music behind Cobain’s existentialist verse and the group offers a timeless commentary on the individual’s struggle against the forces of history. Their heavy-hitting Raga Rock single “Little While” backed with the title track “Hope It Works Out” will be released February 7, 2017 on a limited run of lathe-cut 7″ records via Velocity of Sound Records and will be featured on the soundtrack to Elvis Wilson’s award-winning independent feature film Fogg. Plans for the future include a D-stage afternoon slot at Coachella 2017, a network TV travel show, and a bid for Tennessee State Governor on the Cocktail Party ticket.
