What a wonderful way to start a Wednesday morning than with a brand new song from Saint Asonia? As they quickly approach the release of their debut album that comes out this Friday (July 31), they celebrate by slowly giving the world sneak peaks to the album.
This started with the lead single, "Better Place", was followed by "Blow Me Wide Open", "Let Me Live My Life". and "Fairy Tale." Now there is "Trying to Catch Up With The World."
So far, fans have speculated that the Saint Asonia album would be full of empowering, sort of 'fuck you' songs, but this track definitely breaks that mold.
This is one of the acoustics that frontman, Adam Gontier spoke about once in an interview. It still is a rather hard hitting track, speaking for those who remain silent as they put up with the world. It speaks of darker moments, and trying to get out of them.
"Weak links never practice what they preach. They cowar down below. That's what you call defeat. And in their darkest hour, its hard to breathe. We try to catch up with the world, but we're so far out of reach."
"I wish I hadn't warned you of this broken path. With each step take, you know there's no turning back." Once you're in someone's life, especially one who feels rather damaged, you can't just back out. Not without leaving a massive scar, at least.
This is a rather interesting track, one that should get some people thinking for sure. You can hear this, and all the other songs on the album officially on July 31.
Like what you've heard so far? Want the album? You can still pre-order it now and can hear parts of the album live on their upcoming tours. Their first ever tour will begin in mid August, and in October they will be appearing on tour with Seether!
In the mist of that tour, both bands will take part in several
festivals as well. Both bands will appear at the Louder Than Life festival on October 3, Seether will be at the Aftershock festival on October 24, and Saint Asonia will be at the Rock Allegiance festival on October 10.
Other tour dates can be found on Saint Asonia's website.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
