Barely Civil – “Better Now”

Barely Civil – “Better Now”

Back in October, the Milwaukee emo band Barely Civil released a new single, “Coasting, Mostly,” the first we heard from them since 2020’s I’ll Figure This Out. Today, they’re announcing their new full-length I’d Say I’m Not Fine, which was produced by Chris Teti.

I’d Say I’m Not Fine is an amalgamation of the rage, pain, and self-framing that came in the wake of the COVID pandemic,” the band’s Connor Erickson shared in a statement. “Bitter at times, hopeful and direct in others, this album is a conscious attempt to answer the questions presented in the band’s debut and sophomore installments.”
