Bad Planning ‘Throw’ Fans a Taste of Upcoming Album

Chicago punks release the lead single from their upcoming album release Et Fortes.

Barrington, Illinois punk band Bad Planning have announced their latest album will drop via Jump Start Records on May 6th. 

Et Fortes cranks out eight sincere, energetic, melodic hardcore and pop-punk tracks that show maturity beyond the band’s years.

Bad Planning says of the album: This record represents a lot of growth for our band; past sound blending with a new sound, and longtime bandmates with new ones. Writing this record gave us a sense of purpose during the lockdown, and we can’t wait to share it.”

With a sound encompassing equal amounts of hardcore, emo, skate punk, and pop-punk, Bad Planning is doing things their own way.

The newest recruits of Jump Start Records have been writing together since they were freshmen in high school. Years later, the band is still booking their shows, playing gigs with some of their favourite bands, and making a name for themselves in the midwest.

Bad Planning writes with a sound similar to their fellow Chicago-based influences such as Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms. In 2019 they released Splitting Hairs alongside Chicago band A Semester Abroad, bringing on a heavier side with singles Be Brave and Actors.

The four-piece, consisting of Alex Crook, Jack Coombs, Aaron Hornback, and Miles Schuett, teamed up with Jump Start Records in May 2021, sharing a strong DIY ethos and love for punk rock. The band looks to continue playing shows in and outside of their local scene, developing their sound for future releases.
