Due to scheduling conflicts, the Bravery had to compete with festival-circuit favorites the Roots, Umphrey's McGee and ALO for audience attention when they took to the Echo Project's Eclipse Stage on Sunday in Atlanta. The band made the best of the situation, loosening up for what frontman Sam Endicott dubbed their "weirdest gig ever." Going with the informal vibe, Endicott shared the story behind 'Bad Sun' from the band's 2007 release, 'The Sun and the Moon.'
The tune tells the story of Endicott's ex-girlfriend, who broke up with him several times in favor of another man, allegedly a member of the Russian Mafia who had her phone tapped during one of the periods she was with Endicott. After breaking up with Endicott for a third time, she married the other guy, explaining that he was the only person she knew who was crazier than her. "I thought that was really interesting," Endicott said. "So I wrote a song about it."
