Been Stellar Announce Debut Album, Share New Single ‘Passing Judgement’

    New York five-piece Been Stellar – vocalist Sam Slocum, guitarists Skyler Knapp and Nando Dale, bassist Nico Brunstein, and drummer Laila Wayan – have announced their debut album, Scream From New York, NY. The LP, which was produced by Dan Carey, is out June 14 via their new label home Dirty Hit. Check out the Gabriel Jace Long-directed video for lead single ‘Passing Judgment’ below.

    “We were finishing ‘Passing Judgment’ in the midst of our first tour in the UK. Playing through it a bit differently each show, we were learning to look at the song from different angles. The recording feels live because of this process — there’s a chaotic feeling in the drums and bass that wouldn’t be there if we hadn’t finished writing it live,” Slocum shared in a statement. “Lyrically I was thinking about why we judge the world around us, and how passing judgment on someone or something is usually rooted in being unsure in oneself.”
