Fans will be able to download the singles or pre-order a copy of the 7” on April 10th via Bandcamp. Get an exclusive preview of the songs below.

“I wrote “Big Bad Love” off of a guitar riff/groove, which is very rare for me,” Combs tells American Songwriter. “The lyrics in the chorus ‘feels like getting off some mean old drug, coming down off of big bad love’ were pretty real for me. I was dealing with the end of a long relationship, that sort of strange time a month or two after a breakup when you’re figuring out what it’s like to be alone again. It always ends up being okay, but it can be pretty shitty there for a minute.”

“’Take It From Me’ was the last song I wrote for the new record. I had been kind of dating this girl, but I didn’t think it was going to work, for various reasons. Basically it’s me being honest with her — saying you (the girl) don’t want to get involved with this (me) because I’m kind of a mess right now.”
