One of the first things that Nathan Hussey sings on All Get Out’s forthcoming album No Bouquet is also one of the most poignant: “you’re no bouquet / you’re just a rose.”
It’s a deep dive inside the world of a band that has been the definition of “underrated” for years, with nothing to do but progress. Produced by Mike Watts (Glassjaw, Dillinger Escape Plan), No Bouquet is easily the most impressive of All Get Out’s wildly-underrated discography, recalling in passages Murder By Death and Bright Eyes as much as it does Jimmy Eat World or The Get Up Kids.
No Bouquet comes out November 2 and is available to pre-order now from Equal Vision Records.
The band have also released their new track, “Self Repair”, which is one of the albums standout moments; a song about the suffocating uncertainty of young adulthood. Its quirky video is a metaphorical take on faking it til you make it, a concept that has permeated both Hussey and guitarist Kyle Samuel’s way of life since, well, forever.
“That anxiety follows us around like a bad habit,” Hussey explains. “The video touches on a specific moment, a first job interview, where faking it until we make it becomes an ethos. It’s at least our ethos.”
