Be Your Own Pet Shares Latest Single “Big Trouble

On August 25 Nashville’s Be Your Own Pet will release their long-awaited new album Mommy via Third Man Records. Now they tease the LP with a new single, the thunderous “Big Trouble.” The song is a siren-laden jam where front-woman Jemina Pearl insists on her own emotions and reality. “I live in a country that has taken away the basic human right to an abortion and then has the audacity to ask ‘why are you so angry?,’” says Pearl. “‘Big Trouble’ is about how the daily injustices are all connected to the overarching societal issues of living in a patriarchy.”

Be Your Own Pet made a triumphant return to both the stage and airwaves this past year after nearly 15 years apart. They re-introduced themselves with the critically-acclaimed “Hand Grenade,” (which Rolling Stone labeled “incendiary”followed by “Worship the Whip” and most recently “Goodtime!.” The video for that song was filmed across the band’s three sold-out shows in London earlier this summer, and gives a sneak peek into a Be Your Own Pet performance, which are legendary for being raucously high-energy. Fans will get to experience it live via BYOP’s upcoming Teenage Heaven Fall Tour. Tickets are on sale now here and all dates are listed below:
