For me, Every Famous Last Word is “the” Miracle of 86 record. It marked a crazy fertile growth spurt, in confidence, performance, arrangement, intention. Pretty much all of my peak Miracle memories are framed by the experience of writing/rehearsing/demoing/recording/performing this music (summer 2001 - summer 2003) - our first significant US & European touring, first New York headlining shows of consequence, first SXSW, first US/international press support, and a bunch of really fun/blurry shows with some pretty serious indie/punk/emo luminaries. - Kevin Devine

Put Your Ghost to Rest is ten years old this year, and it hasn’t aged one bit. The album was produced by Rob Schnapf and marked the first of several future collaborations to come between the producer and Kevin Devine. While Kevin has many fan favorite songs, Ghost boasts major ones like “Brooklyn Boy” and “Just Stay,” which are still staples of his set ten years later.
Bad Timing has had the incredible pleasure of working with Kevin over the past eighteen months on about 10 different releases, and though we say something similar each time, we mean it when we say that being able to bring Ghost back to life on vinyl is one of the more special moments in this label’s history.

Produced by Jesse Cannon (Man Overboard, Somos), Sorry, Not Sorry has already drawn rave reviews from fans, allowing ROMP to travel as far as New Orleans to win over audiences with their playful, undeniable pop- and punk-flecked sound. It also launched ROMP into a slot opening for fellow New Brunswick band (and personal heroes) Screaming Females in early 2015 — traction that should serve the quartet well as they ready their debut full-length, due out in early-2016 on Bad Timing.

With the band’s signing to Bad Timing Records, a nod as one of Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need to Know in 2015, and the release of their new EP, There's A Bigger Picture Here, things are moving faster than Stasi could have ever hoped.
Like so many bands, Sudden Suspension is the result of teenage friends discovering music, picking up instruments, and dreaming of one day turning their passions into something more. Stasi started playing music at age 12, and with his cousin on bass, the duo played sets of cover songs at local festivals, recruiting area guitarists and drummers to round out the sound.

Movement isn’t a reintroduction or regeneration — it’s a reaffirmation. It's a torrent of spirit at its most raw moments, an unabashed exorcism of the things that keep us awake at night in the pursuit of a life with deserved purpose. Continuing to gravitate toward the unoccupied spaces between indie and rock, All Get Out’s return to the spotlight in a co-release between Favorite Gentlemen Recordings and Bad Timing Records presents an opportunity for listeners to fall in love all over again with one of the most dynamic groups in this genre.

“We sound like we’ve been on tour for three years. We’ve been smoking and driving, and we don’t smell too good,” Nathan Hussey, singer and guitarist, defining the coming of age sound on All Get Out's full-length debut, The Season.
Writing in the moment, truly unfiltered, each verse displays specific moments of disarray the band found themselves in: broken friendships, fights, and empty wallets. In the end The Season is about moving past it all so you can keep on driving.

Maybe you heard about them pretty recently, when we released their most massive EP yet, While I Stay Secluded, in October 2014. No matter when you hopped on the KP bandwagon, though, it's essential for fans to know about Don't Come Home.
