|Dynamic Cleveland five piece Welshly Arms have shared their new single ‘Dangerous’, available to stream now on all DSPs worldwide. ‘Dangerous’ will be included on the band’s newly announced album ‘Wasted Words & Bad Decisions’, slated for release on 23 September on Snakefarm Records in the UK [in rest of Europe via Vertigo, UMG Germany], ahead of their European tour dubbed the “Bad Decisions Tour”, which includes October stops in 5 cities in the UK and Eire.|
“‘Dangerous’ is about living on the edge and not letting fear stand in the way of where you want to be. We’re told our whole lives to stay in certain boxes for our own good, to protect ourselves. Then you start to step out and realize life’s a lot more interesting when you take chances,” said lead singer and guitarist Sam Getz.
This September, Welshly Arms will release their anticipated third full-length album ‘Wasted Words & Bad Decisions’, which will feature ‘Dangerous’ as well as previously released singles such as ‘Are You Lonely?’, ‘save me from the monster in my head’, and ‘Stand’, all of which were recorded in an old farm house in the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio. ‘…Bad Decisions’ encapsulates the band’s eclectic musical inspirations from jazz to soul, gospel to blues, rock to alternative, and everything in between.
Welshly Arms captured the music world’s attention with their smash single “Legendary” which is now certified platinum in Germany and Switzerland having amassed over 200 Million streams. The song’s warm reception launched the five proud midwesterners onto the biggest stages and festivals around the world, including Lollapalooza, The Reeding & Leeds Festival, Bottlerock, Rock am Ring, Hangout Music Fest, Shaky Knees, and more.
The five-piece band features Sam Getz [Lead, Singer, Guitar], Jimmy Weaver [bass, vocals], Mikey Gould [drums], Bri Bryant [vocals], and Jon Bryant [vocals], who share a true passion for music and live performance.
Off the stage, Welshly Arms‘ music has appeared in Underground 6 (Netflix), Empire (Fox), FIFA (EA Sports), Quentin Tarentino’s award-winning film “The Hateful Eight” (Trailer), and has been used by major brands such as Miller Lite, Jeep, ESPN, the MLB, NFL, and NASCAR.
Most recently, the band’s single “Are You Lonely?” was featured in the massive online world of Fortnite—as the song can be played on “Radio Underground” while driving around the virtual Fortnite world in a car. “Are You Lonely” was supported by radio across the US and Europe, paving the way for “Dangerous”.
