Missing Something EP
Produced by the band, mixed by Spoon’s Jim Eno, and mastered by Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Wolf Alice, Blood Orange, M83), Missing Something was released on Friday, September 28 through Modern Outsider Records..

A deeply personal collection of songs, Missing Something was heavily influenced by the death of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jackie O’Brien’s brother, Alex, the band’s longtime manager who struggled with bipolar disorder.

“These songs capture a very confusing and uncanny turn in our lives, Alex's decent into sudden and severe bipolar 1 disorder as well as the end of a global epoch,” said Jackie. “To me, the music channels the schizoid joy of your world unraveling so quickly you've got no choice but to pull back and enjoy your beautiful, short-circuiting self, not even worrying about making sense of it all 'cause that's just not possible.”

Known for their incredible live shows, The Bright Light Social Hour has performed at major festivals in addition to their own national and international touring, including Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Festival.

Jude Vol. I
Austin, TX-based psychedelic band The Bright Light Social Hour released Jude Vol. I, their third full-length album, on February 1 via Modern Outsider. Produced by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House, Slowdive, Zola Jesus), the deeply personal album was written after the passing of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jackie O'Brien's brother Alex, the band's longtime manager who suffered from bipolar disorder.

Jude Vol. I is the full-length follow-up to 2015's Space Is Still The Place, which spawned songs licensed for HBO, MTV, Fox, The CW, and NBC, and ultimately led to the band composing the theme song for Amazon's series "Sneaky Pete." The Bright Light Social Hour has toured extensively in the US and abroad, both headlining and supporting acts like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

A mainstay on the festival circuit, The Bright Light Social Hour has played Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Hangout Festival and Sasquatch! Festival among others. Not ones to shy away from politics, the band has also built a reputation for their musical responses to current social issues, like "Wendy Davis," written after spending all night at Texas State Senator Wendy Davis’s famous filibuster of Texas Senate Bill 5, and "Tear Down That Wall," produced by Jim Eno (Spoon), released on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration.
