Bully is an alternative/punk rock band originally from Nashville, TN. Frontwoman Alicia Bognanno, a Minnesota native, started out on the more technical side of music as an engineer. After moving to Nashville, she recruited the other members of Bully and formed the band.

They performed “Trying,” the flagship single from the album, live on CONAN on August 18, 2015:
