Bad Veins are following their spectacular debut with an even better sophomore effort coming out next month. The Mess We've Made finds the duo of Benjamin Davis and Sebastien Schultz have taken the mixture of dance, rock and lush arrangements they're so good at and amped it up a notch. We've seen their live show and the new album's found the band focusing that exuberance and capturing it in the studio.

To whet appetites before the disc is released the duo, and their reel-to-reel tape machine named Irene, are on tour and they play Bottom Lounge tonight, March 23, with We Were Promised Jetpacks. And to whet your appetite for the show we've got the lead off single “Dancing on TV” for you to download for free!
