Bully Offer Up a Rock and Roll Ode to a Late Dog on New Song ‘Days Move Slow’

Nashville garage rockers Bully are back with a new song, “Days Move Slow,” which will appear on their next album, Lucky for You, out June 2 via Sub Pop.

“Days Move Slow” is a punchy but poignant tune, an energetic and honest exploration of grief that Bully’s Alicia Bognanno wrote after the death of her dog, Mezzi.

“As someone who has spent the majority of my life feeling agonizingly misunderstood, there is no greater gift than experiencing true unconditional love and acceptance,” Bognanno said in a statement. “I waited my whole life for the bond and irreplaceable companionship I had with Mezzi. She was my best friend and my only constant through some of the most pivotal moments and phases of my life. I was a stranger to the level of love I now know exists because of Mezzi.”

The track arrives with a music video, directed by Alex Ross Perry, the filmmaker behind Her Smell and the upcoming Pavement sorta-documentary (Bognanno contributed to both those projects as well). “Right away, it seemed striking to make a piece as stark and measured as possible, not to make a video that replicates the song’s sonic energy but to visualize the emotional weight and feelings of loss and grief depicted in the lyrics,” Perry said. “Alicia doesn’t seem to have been filmed in 16mm black and white before, so it was a no-brainer to give that a try.”

“Days Move Slow” is the second song Bully have shared from Lucky for You, following “Lose You,” a collaboration with fellow Nashville alt-rockers Soccer Mommy. The album follows Bully’s 2020 offering, Sugaregg.

Bully have also announced a ton of North American tour dates for 2023 in support of Lucky for You. Their run includes a mix of headlining shows, as well as some concerts with Pixies and Franz Ferdinand. Tickets for the headlining gigs will go on sale March 24 at 10 a.m. local time, with full info available on Bully’s website.
