Bad Again

by No Time for Structure

Hey all! We're No Time for Structure, a funky Pop-Punk/Emo project from New Jersey! Bad Again is a high-energy sad song that was written because it was... getting bad again (ha ha ha). We hope you can relate, and that maybe you can possibly bust a move while in your feelings!

My name is Cooksey and I'm a singer-songwriter in Colorado. I have been in and out of hardcore and pop-punk bands for the last 15 years, but my new solo project is all acoustic. The sound is heavily influenced by all of the great early 2000's emo music I grew up listening to.
