On its 2017 album The Incessant, Chicago band Meat Wave showcases a side of itself previously unseen. Largely inspired by the end of Meat Wave vocalist Chris Sutter’s 12-year romantic relationship, the album explores deeply personal themes of growth, loss, and self-loathing. Combine that with the band’s always charismatic and energetic stage persona and Meat Wave is a must-see. Thus, in partnership with Goose Island Beer Company, we invited Meat Wave to our second Chicago Session. In the video above, the band performs “Bad Man” from The Incessant and talks about the allure of Chicago and its diverse music scene.
