Brisbane’s Stepson are revealing their brand new video/single ‘Come With Me’ and announcing their celebratory Australian tour – alongside mates Stateside and Aburden. ‘Come With Me’ will be available in iTunes and Spotify and all good online outlets from now!
The brand new song, which premiered Wednesday night on triple j’s SHORT. FAST. LOUD, was brought to life by producer Callan Orr at Avalanche Studios and drums were recorded by Sam Bassal (Drummer from Ocean Grove). The accompanying filmclip for the track was directed by Adrian Eyre and Splat Studios and is now sitting at nearly 20k views in 24 hours of being online after it’s premiere at Hysteria Mag.
Vocalist Brock Conry wanted to share his process on writing the lyrics and the themes surrounding the song. ““Come With Me” is about the constant self-deprecation you face when you think you aren’t good enough for some one you truly care about. For me personally, I thought I was doing the right thing but the extent of what I created was ultimately the worst thing I could’ve done. I’ve always been one to ignore issues, particularly to do with my own feelings, but little did I know it is quite possibly the worst and most harsh things you can do to a person that cares about you. The permanent fear of not knowing whether or not you’re good enough for someone who has treated you with nothing but love and respect is completely horrifying and I do not wish it upon anyone. In turn, I loved and lost someone due to my constant push and pull and this song is about how I felt during that very trying time.”
The tour begins July 28th and takes in Casino, Brisbane for 18+ and AA shows, Newcastle, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne for 18+ and AA shows. Both supports, Stateside and Aburden have new releases out now as well – and have been making moves of their own lately. Tickets go on sale for the Come With Me release tour on Thursday June 29 at oztix.com.au.
Stepson are a 5 piece melodic-hardcore band from Brisbane, QLD that pride themselves on having high energy, honest lyrics and raw, emotive music. The band first kicked things off with their debut EP ‘Broken Bottles / Drunken Hearts’ in 2014 which immediately saw them make their way around the country. The following year, the band released their sophomore EP titled ‘Echoes In An Empty Room’. EIAER was very well received nation-wide, Alex Sievers (Killyourstereo) joked that “you might need a Valium while listening to this emotion-filled release”.
In 2016, Stepson released one single (Never Mind Me) and a 3-track EP (The Beautiful Lie). Never Mind Me was intended to be an amalgamation of the two EP’s released in the previous years, and that it was. It really compressed the band’s sound into one track and made it easy to understand what Stepson really is… until they released The Beautiful Lie, a far more relaxed and intimate release. Ever-surprising and always interesting, Stepson are poised to be one of Australia’s most exciting heavy acts.
Along the way, Stepson have been given the chance to share a stage with international acts such as Counterparts, Title Fight, Capsize and While She Sleeps as well as some of Australia’s finest like Ocean Grove, Hellions and Storm The Sky. The band was also given the opportunity to perform at 2016’s sold-out Invasion Fest alongside some heavier acts such as Kublai Khan, Graves & Cursed Earth.
Come With Me will be available in iTunes/Spotify and online stores from this Friday 23rd June. For more information, go to facebook.com/stepsonpunk.
