Official press release:

Soulful, sophisticated, and more fiery than ever, bluesy rock singer/songwriter Juliet Simms has returned with her first new single in over a year. Along with the track, titled “Bad Love”, comes the announcement that she has signed to renowned Los Angeles-based label Sumerian Records. Fans can watch the new music video for “Bad Love” now:

Simms shares:

“This song means the world to me, for the majority of my career up to this point I have felt as if I have been unable to create freely in the way that I have always wanted to. Now with the release of my new single ‘Bad Love’ I am finally able to lay it all out there so to speak, to not hide behind anything and to be open and honest as an artist with my audience. This is a new era for me in my life and career and I couldn’t be more excited about going into this chapter with Sumerian Records and working with a tremendous producer like Scott Stevens. Both the single and really the entirety of my upcoming full length record are representative of a reinvention and rebirth for me as a writer, singer and performer and I can’t wait for everyone to hear what I have been working on!”

She continues:

“For the video for ‘Bad Love’ I was able to work with my longtime friend and collaborator Patrick Fogarty to create something that in my mind unapologetically shows both my vulnerability but also my power and strength as a woman. My story is one of peaks and valleys and through it all I have remained strong in my resolve to carry on and fight for what I believe in. This video to me shows just that. The raw power of passion, pain, love, sorrow & heart. Getting to spend two days shooting with Bob the snake was an absolute dream come true. Bob actually happens to be a girl but plays the role of a metaphorical entity in which I’ll leave a mystery for my listeners to interpret. In the story of my video – ‘he’ represents a lot more than what’s on the surface.”

Simms will be bringing the new song to audiences across North America this summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Disrupt Festival. Featuring some of the biggest bands in rock as well as the genre’s rising stars, the touring festival is now underway and features performances from The Used, Thrice, Circa Survive, Sum 41, Sleeping With Sirens, Andy Black, and more. Please visit for tickets and full line-up details by city.

Simms adds:

“I can’t wait to play this song on stage every day this summer, it means everything to me and I hope you all enjoy it!”
