Sharing new song ‘Stop Beating On My Heart (Like A Bass Drum)’ alongside the news, the band’s Jamie Stephen Hall says, “There are people in life that seem to bring a cloud of toxicity and conflict along with them wherever they go. When they come into my world it’s like storm clouds have formed over my head and, there is only a matter of time before the first rain drop falls and the storm erupts… The storm opens up old wounds, I’m left rudderless and disorientated from it and as I start to pick myself back up I know it’s only a matter of time before it happens again. In ‘Like A Bass Drum’ I am begging for it to end, stop beating on my heart like a bass drum.”
Continuing about the new record, he explains, “I never really felt in the past that I could talk about really personal things. I’d always used a mask. It’s quite easy to do that because you’re not exposing yourself in anyway. I’d always subconsciously tried to shy away from talking about myself. I didn’t want to do that anymore. I wanted this to be about me and process my emotions for the first time. I think that’s made us more genuine and authentic as a band.
