Song Premiere: “You Need Me” By The Bad Applez

Loud Hailer is proud to present the song premiere of “You Need Me,” the lead single from the female-fronted Hollywood rockers, The Bad Applez.

The Bad Applez are set to release “You Need Me” on February 22, but you can hear it here first. The band is set to release their debut self-titled four-song EP on April 19. The theme flowing throughout the EP is relationships and “represents the butterflies in the pit or your stomach when you first feel strong feelings for someone,” says lead vocalist Brooke LeWinter. “It also symbolizes the “honeymoon phase” of the relationship.” 

“We are blind,” adds bassist Chris Amaya about “You Need Me” and the EP’s relationship theme. “We don’t want to see any single defect of the person that we think is the ‘love of our lives,’ but sadly they’re likely not, and you can figure it out when you listen to the whole EP.”

During the summer of 2018, The Bad Applez performed their debut night at The Viper Room. It didn’t take long before they landed a month-long residency at Whisky A Go Go. Since then, they have gone on to team up with the Playing For Change Foundation by performing a three-song acoustic set which was broadcast to a worldwide audience of more than 18 million. 

Without further ado, here is “You Need Me:”

The upcoming EP release will be followed by a nationwide tour, so be sure to keep an eye out for dates.
