We Are The Union
We Are The Union is a band with many homes, but is currently based in Los Angeles, CA.
Drawing heavily on ska, pop, and punk rock, the band’s 2021 full length, ‘Ordinary Life,’
balances soul crushing lyrics about dysphoria and heartbreak with endless hooks and furiously
catchy choruses. The album, which serves as vocalist Reade Wolcott’s coming out as a trans
woman, was recorded in secret in a rented house in Joshua Tree with producer Jon Graber.
‘Ordinary Life’ released June 4th 2021 via Bad Time Records and is currently on its fifth pressing.
