Crush 40 gave us a sneaky peak at some of the track titles of the songs the band are currently working on last month, named “Rise Again”, “One of Those Days” and “Sonic Youth”. A post today on the Crush 40 facebook page confirmed these songs have now been recorded, with commentary from Johnny Gioeli on the themes of these songs.
… We’ve all known people who hit what I call “lows” in their life. This song is about crawling out of the dark and into the light…because just when you feel you are in the worst place in your life, there is always an opportunity to “Rise Again”
This song is about the dedicated Crush40 fans who believe in our music every year. We live for the music, we live for the thrill of the game….we are the “Sonic Youth”.
One Of Those Days:
Sometimes you wake up and start the day walking into walls….everything you do is wrong! You trip on your own feet…you drop your cell phone in the toilet…no matter what you do, it keeps happening….!!! There’s only one way to fix it all and thats for the day to just end…..so when it happens to you, “write it off for one of those aw aw awful days….One of those days…..”
Crush 40 will be performing at two live dates at the end of March in Tokyo, which will likely see performances of these new songs. Check out the wavemaster site for more details.
