Bayside Premieres "Numb" on Billboard

New Album Interrobang

Out 10/4 via Hopeless Records

Pre-Order Now At

Renowned punk act Bayside are treating fans to one last taste of the band's forthcoming album, Interrobang. "Numb" is premiering now on Billboard, alongside an exclusive interview. The band, who recently announced Interrobang and upcoming The Interrobang Tour, are showing no signs of slowing down, with the albumset to be released this Friday, October 4th via Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available at

"Numb is a sludgy, sing-a-long song.'" shares front man Anthony Raneri. "I wanted to make it easy to follow and sing along to on the first listen but also have lots layers to peel back on further listens."

Bayside will be supporting the new record with upcoming The Interrobang Tour. A series of small club shows that see the band playing some of their smallest rooms in years, The Interrobang Tourkicks off on November 6th and features special guests Sincere Engineer and Capstan. Tickets are on-sale now and available now at

Starting this week, fans have the power to decide who will be performing alongside the legends on their upcoming tour. Along with the recent announcement, Bayside recently invited unsigned, non-touring bands to submit themselves for the opportunity to open at their local show date. Fans are now able to vote on who they'd like to see at, with one band being selected for each show.

For the past 20 years, the Queens-based, Bayside has represented a lifestyle, a counterculture, and a deeply held conviction, diverse in thought and background but united by a shared desire for authentic expression. At their core, Bayside is a band that has constantly proved that music is not about gimmicks and ephemeral trends, but a timeless reflection of our lives and our times. It is through this timelessness and consistency that they continue to cultivate a cult-following that lives and breathes everything the band creates.

Interrobang is a punctuation mark that combines an exclamation and a question mark. For Raneri, the title represents the feelings the band's 8th studio album invokes from the listener. "We wanted the record to feel exciting and new, but also sound like a natural progression for the band," Raneri explains, "We just wanted to keep the listener on their toes - there is a ton of information being thrown out - and if you want to take it all in - you can't stop paying attention for a second." The result is the heaviest rock album of the band's career juxtaposed with the most catchy, melodic hooks the band has ever created.

Working with acclaimed producer, Cameron Webb (NOFX, Motorhead, Alkaline Trio), the band embraced his eclectic résumé and pushed the boundaries of what a Bayside song could sound like. "Cameron (Webb) has worked with a really wide range of artists, from NOFX and Lagwagon to Kelly Clarkson to Motorhead and Megadeth," Raneri shared, "We thought it would be perfect to work with (him) because we see ourselves as sitting somewhere in between all of those artists."

Bayside has always focused on creating songs that are relevant to people who want substance, rather than being relegated to one genre. With Interrobang, the band has put together an eclectic, inspiring, and bold collection of songs. Raneri shares, "Love it or hate it, we wanted the record to invoke something in people. We said with this record we either wanted to create something great or fall on our faces. Negative or positive, we just didn't want the record to be 'fine.'" While many bands would coast on their past success, Bayside rejects the premise and proves with Interrobang, out October 4, 2019 via Hopeless Records, that the best is yet to come.
