Salt Lake City-based indie band The Backseat Lovers make their major label debut with Waiting to Spill, which will be released on October 28 by Capitol Records in digital, 180g vinyl and CD formats. In addition to the standard black vinyl, there will be a dark green vinyl edition, available only from the band’s online store and a clear vinyl version, which will be available exclusively at indie retailers.

Fans who pre-order the digital version of Waiting to Spill will instantly receive “Growing/Dying.” View the album trailer HERE.

Whereas When We Were Friends was, for pragmatic reasons, a collection of songs, the band conceived Waiting to Spill as a collective body of work. David Greenbaum (Paul McCartney, Beck, Cage the Elephant) produced and mixed the new album.

When We Were Friends was our first attempt at making an album and it was essentially recording one song, selling some t-shirts at a show the next month and being able to record another song,” recall The Backseat Lovers. “Upon finishing it, we were quickly filled with a strong desire to make something that really flowed together, with each song intentionally placed, creating a cohesion that spans the whole record. Overall though, Waiting to Spill really feels like a continuation, the next chapter of our lives.” 

Nearly 60 dates were sold out on the band’s first two North American headline tours, which saw them move from intimate venues like the Troubadour in 2021 – documented on Live from the Troubadour – to the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles just six months later. They’ve sold over 55,000 tickets in just over a year. This summer, The Backseat Lovers played such festivals as Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Newport Folk. 

Joshua Harmon, Jonas Swanson, KJ Ward & Juice Welch – who comprise The Backseat Lovers –met while in high school and finished up their first EP, Elevator Days, just before graduation. They’ve since amassed over 370 million combined global streams across their songs, which include the top 20 Alternative hit “Kilby Girl,” which spent five weeks on the U.S. Spotify top songs chart.
