Bedfordshire based rock quintet SEASONS have just released a brand new video for “Getaway”, the first taste of their upcoming new EP. Resplendent with punchy riffs, sing-a-long melodies and a whole heap of sincerity, this is a track meant to send a message loud and clear!
You can watch Getaway below and here, guitarist Steve Watts explains the meaning behind the track:
“The idea of our 3rd EP is basically to create songs that are relatable and easy for people to form connections with, no matter their age or situation. The first single, ‘Getaway’ is written about a subject that almost everyone has experienced or witnessed in their life – bullying. It’s a real “middle finger” to any bullies out there who are trying to make someone else’s life hard.
I feel like the song could give someone the strength or empower them to fight back against whoever it is that is making their life miserable. The message is very clear, “I will not be broken”, and all of us in the band can relate to that from our own experiences in school and growing up in this digital age. We just really want people to know that they’re not alone!”
The band recently announced that the new EP, ‘Chapters’ will be released on 20th April, as part of the build-up to the release of “Chapters”, the band are giving away a brand new Fender Squire guitar to one lucky person. To be in with a chance of getting your hands on the prize, you just need to pre-order the new EP on the bands’ own store. Click here to pre-order and the guitar could be yours!
The winner will be announced at a special EP release show in April.
On ‘Chapters’, Steve comments:
“Our third EP ‘Chapters’ is definitely the most emotionally involved collection of music that we have written as a band. The name comes from the idea that the songs are based around a subject that each of us have had connections with or experienced in our own lives, each one a chapter of our lives, if you like. We want people to feel the emotion in each song and to really connect and relate to that. In SEASONS we all have the same view that music and lyrics, in particular, can have such a strong influence on a life whether it’s giving them strength to battle through a tough time, or showing them they aren’t alone in their emotions. We hope that behind the big riffs and catchy choruses, people hear the messages in the songs and enjoy them on that level too!”
Formed in 2016, SEASONS first year saw them release 2 EPs, embark on 4 tours, sell out 4 shows, have a music video premiere hit number 1 for hottest news on Kerrang! and reach over 100k streams of their last EP ’What Goes Around’ on Spotify.
