BROADSIDE - neues Label, neuer Song



Die Poppunkband BROADSIDE unterschreibt bei SharpTone Records und stellt einen neuen Son namens "Foolish Believer" vor. Frontmann Ollie Baxxter kommentiert den Song wie folgt:

 "When I was 11 years old, I would sit on the edge of my bed and look at the cheap Walmart mirror hanging on the back of my bedroom door and pity the reflection. I realized at a young age I hated being alone even though I was incredibly good at it. Now, as an adult, I find myself chasing a dream that feels unattainable in hopes that I don't have to see what I once did. I pay my own rent, I can afford a better mirror but the reflection still feels the same. I just want to be remembered. That's the moral of the song. It's selfish, to dream as much as I do but I'm sick of pretending I'm fine behind closed doors, I'm just not"

Ueber die letzten Jahre machte die Band Um Baxter einiges durch. Baxxter erklaert:

After the 2018 Warped Tour, I was in this downward spiral of questioning. What is my purpose? I felt like I was in a boxEveryone was looking at me, like, ‘Your move. What are you going to do?’ But I’m sitting there questioning myself. ‘Can I pick the pieces up?’ I realized the thing that’s kept me going, since the days when we were paid in French fries, is that there was never a ‘Plan B’ for me. I want to be something more than where I came from, more than I am.

From the very beginning, my attitude was: I don’t have shit to look forward to and everything behind me is trash, so I’m going to make myself the hero of my own story” he explains. “I’ve always known struggle. As I get older, it’s more mental than physical, but it’s always there".
