Ahead of their new album, Illuminate, which is expected to feature 12-14 tracks, Hermosa Beach, CA natives Tomorrows Bad Seeds have dropped another single entitled “Trinity.” They’ve released a music video for the song in addition to a video for the single “Frequency” that dropped last month.
Much to our liking, Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds has developed a steady habit of feeding our ears with new singles over the past few years. “War Letter” debuted in 2016, and last year they brought us “Tell Me Mary” in addition to “No Matter What” – it has not yet been confirmed, however each of the tracks are expected to be on their new album Illuminate due later this Spring. Their new full-length album (and first since 2012’s The Great Escape) is also expected to include their most recent addition “Frequency.”
Similar to its recent predecessors, “Trinity” is more pop-reggae in nature, while adding hip-hop elements throughout the track. TBS offered up some insight behind the thematic meaning of the song:
“Trinity is a comeback song. Like the Phoenix rising out of the ashes into a new more mature body paying respect to life and love. Life is the mission and love is the message. The message is living life over everything respecting each other and remaining humble in this concrete jungle.”
The music video was shot to capture the street side of Hermosa Beach and at the Roadium in Gardena, CA where frontman Moi Juarez spent lots of summers helping his father sell at the swap meet. As for “Frequency,” the music video is shot completely in a blue-grey scale for more of an artistic approach capturing what appears to be studio sessions from Island Empire Studio in Carson, CA — it was confirmed that they have been working with Chaz “Rox” Toney for their new record.

While the full track-list and official release date of Illuminate is still undisclosed, there is plenty to be excited about from the samples we’ve been able to fire up in the meantime! Much has changed over the years, including the line-up and quite naturally the sound. Moises tells The Pier: “Since our last album, there’s been a few changes. As many of you know, guitarist Sean “Chaps” Chapman is no longer a part of Tomorrows Bad Seeds so we’ve been readjusting to the new dynamics of the band. This, along with spending more time with family, has helped us expand and re-discover the love of our art.”
You can find Tomorrows Bad Seeds on their Illuminate Spring Tour alongside Sun-Dried Vibes and Roots of a Rebellion.
