“Live, You’re Gonna Die” follows the previously released double-singles offTWENTY SOMETHING NIGHTMARE“Victim of The Times”/”Live, You’re Gonna Die” (click here to listen via Spotify) and “Million Dollar Seller Pt1/Pt2” and “Numbers” (click here to listen). This coming Friday (6/29),VISTA KICKS will offer up another double-song single from the album, “If I didn’t have You”/“I Can’t Think of Anybody But U.” Fans can pre-save the single on Spotify here.

In a bold move that’s in line with the band’s free spirit, VISTA KICKS released the album’s lead double-single–“Million Dollar Seller Pt1/Pt2” and“Numbers“–on May 31 into the public domain, making the songs available without a copyright so anyone can use them without needing to pay a fee to the band. The band’s Derek Thomas told FORBES.com, “We’re trying it out. It’s a social experiment for us…we really believe in it. We believe in the power of public domain.” Thomas added: “I think the world misses out on a lot of really awesome art that could’ve been made if artists weren’t in the circumstance of compromising their beliefs for money or for investment.”

For the upcoming 18-track album TWENTY SOMETHING NIGHTMARE, co-produced by the quartet–Thomas (vocals), Sam Plecker (guitar/vocals),Trevor Sutton (bass), and Nolan Le Vine (drums)–VISTA KICKS once again amplifies the scope of their signature style as they maintain the edge that made them, “The Originators of Booty Shaking Rock N’ Roll,” proving to be a seamless follow-up to 2017’s well-received Booty Shakers Ball album.

Earlier this month, VISTA KICKS performed four songs, including the new album’s title track, with Jam In The Van (watch here) and spoke to Los Angeles’ KTLA-TV about their music and live show (watch here) as they prepare for their upcoming gigs.
