With the album announcement, the Colorado-based band also debuted the album’s title track as their first single (alongside a dreamy visualizer) which they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform.

For some backstory on “BRIGHTSIDE” — the band’s singer-guitarist and co-founder Wesley Schultz revealed in the LP’s official announcement, “The song… was recorded in a single day,” and we’re paraphrasing here, is some real apocalyptic Bonnie and Clyde ish. No seriously, here’s Schultz’ description — “It’s like a 15-year-old’s fever dream, an American love story in all its glory and heartbreak. The last couple left, on the run from something and all alone…”

In addition to premiering their newest tune, the folk-rock group also took offered up a little off-air online exclusive mini set, performing four tracks including “Ophelia,” “Gloria, “Gale Song,” and “It Wasn’t Easy to Be Happy for You.”
