Columbia, SC - June 11, 2020 - Today, emo/pop-rock band Happy. are premiering their new single/video "Sick is the New Sane". Stream it exclusively via Substream Magazine. "When you are an artist you have an obligation to uphold a certain amount of attention and interest online," explains the band. "This song is about feeling detached from real life due to constantly feeling the need to be present online and the effect it has on our psyche and mental health." The single, which releases officially tomorrow, June 12th via Rude Records, is available to pre-save here: https://happy.lnk.to/sick. This month's proceeds from the single will be donated to Campaign Zero and the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective.

The result was their 2018 debut full-length album, Cult Classic, which was produced by Cartel's Will Pugh.
