"It's so easy to become addicted to the quick validation of social media"
Eat Your Heart Out have released their first new music in three years, and it's so lovely to have them back.
And the track in question is a stark and personal one.
It's called 'Down' and find the band expanding in their scope and sonics as they focus on the toxic effects of letting someone's words online ruin you.
They had this to say about it:
"The lyrics were inspired by the idea of social media addiction, and specifically, when you're comparing yourself to others or see a negative comment about yourself or your art from some random person on the Internet and you know you shouldn't give it any weight, but sometimes, you do it anyway. You always come out feeling worse, but it's so easy to become addicted to the quick validation of social media."
"We had a lot of fun recording 'Down' and experimenting with some different guitar sounds. As one of the heavier and rockier songs on the record, it is already one of our favorites to play live."
And here it is:
The band's last record 'Florescence' came out in 2019 via Fearless Records.
