Time for some 'Wishful Sinking'.
Blessthefall have released a new song.
It's called 'Wishful Sinking' and it's an absolute anthem.
Vocalist Beau Bokan had this to say about the track:
"'Wishful Sinking' is one of the first songs we wrote for this album.
It's got all the familiar Blessthefall vibes that any old school fan will recognise immediately. We wanted to do what we do best while finding a fresh sound.
I think it's one of the more dynamic songs vocally and musically. It takes you on a ride that ignites the whole album."
Well what you waiting for? Get listening:
The track is taken from the band's upcoming album 'Hard Feelings' which is set for release on March 23 via Rise Records.
Here's first single 'Melodramatic':
We recently spoke to Beau and found out EVERYTHING about the new album:
WAS IT CATHARTIC PUTTING ‘HARD FEELINGS’ TOGETHER?
“It was. And like I said, we were at the point where we were like, ‘Do we keep rolling, do we keep doing this? We could just all go and get good jobs somewhere and I won’t have to leave my fucking family for months at a time!’ So yeah definitely, there’s so much emotion in this record and I think it’s one of my favourites as far as lyrics go as well. I feel like I really channeled those feelings of feeling like no one gave a fuck about us anymore and feeling like our label doesn’t give a fuck about us, the scene doesn’t give a fuck about us anymore.
“You know all these bands are coming through and getting big and everyone’s jumping on the hot new thing, so all of that was channeled into the record and just having to leave my family.
“We went to Arizona to do the album for about a month. We rented a big old Airbnb house and Tyler Smyth our producer came in. We were going to Europe for seven weeks and it was all time away from the family. As I’m writing I’m thinking, ‘Holy fuck, I’m going to be away from my daughter and my wife for seven weeks, I’ve never been gone that long’ So that all went into it; that shitty, dark place of like, ‘Fuck man, am I doing the right thing?’”
HAS IT BEEN FRUSTRATING SEEING THE INDUSTRY CHANGE LIKE THAT?
“Yeah. You know, I don’t want to be the old jaded dude but it is hard to see. At the same time I know that there’s going to be a backlash to all the overly regurgitated, same EDM songs, like The Chainsmokers’ song that you hear because everyone else wants to sound like that.
“There’s going to be a backlash to that part of it gives me some hope that it’s going to go the other way, rock and roll’s going to come back, it just has to. And I also see that if these guys can make it, then we can!
“I don’t want to take anything away from those people because I have friends who are successful DJs so I don’t want to bash on them, it’s just frustrating for me because it’s like, ‘Man, you can just write a fucking hit song then and there and in a few hours be done with it and there’s no overhead? You don’t have to go to a studio and get drummers and this and that?’
“It is a little frustrating at times, but I understand that’s where we are now and I think rock and roll’s going to make a comeback. I hope we’re at the forefront of it.”
WAS THIS ALBUM A REACTION TO ALL OF THAT, A WAY OF PUSHING THROUGH THE BULLSHIT?
“Definitely. I do truly feel like things are changing, the music scene is riding this weird moment where everything’s sort of in limbo and it’s like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ and I watch a lot of bands in our scene get big and everything else and I’m really like, ‘You know what guys, it’s our fucking turn now, we’ve put in the work, we’re the fucking veterans here, we wrote an amazing album and what I feel is an important album for the scene and for rock in general’.”
