Mega Bog – “The Clown”

Mega Bog – “The Clown”

Mega Bog — the experimental pop troupe led by Erin Elizabeth Birgy — have announced their seventh studio album, End Of Everything. The follow-up to 2021’s Life, And Another will be Birgy’s first for Mexican Summer and comes out May 19. In conjunction with the announcement, she’s sharing lead single “The Clown,” which also has a self-directed video.

Co-produced with James Krivchenia, who also provides drums, End Of Everything features engineering contributions from Phil Hartunian. The band is rounded out with guitar-work from Will Segerstrom, Meg Duffy of Hand Habits, and Jackson Macintosh of Drugdealer and TOPS.

Describing “The Clown,” Birgy says, “‘The Clown’ is about the terrible, sensual, and chaotic release of merging one’s own multitudes, showing love to the darkness and insecurities, having curiosity about what is beyond presumed perceptions –surrendering to the uncontrollables, while nourishing the small statues of what we do have control over within ourselves.”
