Set It Off have shared two new songs from their forthcoming Fearless Records debut Midnight, out February 1 through Caroline Australia & Fearless Records. The album is available for pre-order HERE.
The band is dropping two new songs at the same time for a very specific reason. Set It Off are seeking fan input and assistance in deciding which track should get a proper music video. Fans can vote via setitoffband.com/vote. The band will announce which song fans voted for on New Year’s Day.
To help with the decision-making process, singer Cody Carson offered insight into both songs.
“‘Dancing With the Devil’ is a story of betrayal,” he said. “It unfortunately happens more often than it should that I someone we work with or someone we get close to in our lives feeds us lines of support and love, reels us in with a false sense of connection, and then whenever they feel like we can’t feed their needs, they cut the line and watch us drown. To me, that severance is fuel. That betrayal and abandonment is a reason to prove something, and the chip on the shoulder grows. This world is a tough place, but we have to be tougher and keep our eyes open so we don’t end up ‘Dancing With the Devil.’“
About “For You Forever,” Carson said, “ is my way of putting myself in the shoes of someone else when I was single. I was stubborn, I didn’t want a serious relationship, and I’d always let the other person know that. However, sometimes feelings grew, and I pushed them away because I felt I wasn’t ready, but it wouldn’t always stop them from waiting for me. This song collects the multitude of emotions that circulated through those situations from start, to end, to even how their friends may have advised them. It was a seriously humbling and vulnerable song to write, but sometimes you have to call yourself out.“
Listen to both tracks below.
The Los Angeles-based band – comprised of Cody Carson (vocals), Dan Clermont (guitar), Zach DeWall (guitar) and Maxx Danziger (drums) – have become known for creating their own original brand of pop music, infusing bold electronic elements that guide loud, driving rock instrumentation with guitar riffs as catchy as the choruses and an overall feel-good, dance-worthy vibe. Commanding attention, Set It Off bring authenticity back to pop music in a bold and unapologetic way.
The group’s last full-length release, Upside Down, was noted as one of the “Most Anticipated Albums of 2016” by Alternative Press Magazine and follows the band’s sophomore album, Duality, which debuted at No. 18 on the Billboard Independent Chart. The band’s debut full-length, Cinematics, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard South Atlantic Heatseekers Regional Chart, No. 4 on Billboard Heatseekers Chart, No. 9 on Billboard Next Big Sound Chart, and even broke into the Billboard Top 200 chart.
Set it Off’s new album Midnight will be released on Friday February 1 through Caroline Music Australia and Fearless Records. Single ‘Lonely Dance’ is out now in all good digital stores and streaming outlets. The album can be pre-ordered HERE!
