Saves The Day Tell Their Own Origin Story In Video For New Single, Side By Side
Saves The Day are going full introspective with their upcoming new album 9. When they dropped the first single, Rendezvous, the band announced that 9 was actually a concept album of sorts — one that would tell their story from start to finish.
Now, Saves The Day have released a video for Side By Side, which recreates the band’s formation: from one kid in his garage to five musicians coming together at a punk show.
In his recent interview with Kerrang!, frontman Chris Conley described the track: “There was never once an ‘original line-up’ aside from me and [co-founding drummer] Bryan Newman, when we were 13 years old…Side By Side is about Bryan calling me up in eighth grade and saying, ‘Come over and bring your guitar.’ I went over that weekend and started playing, and the rest is history.”
Check out the video below and try to stop yourself from saying, “Aw…”
Saves The Day’s 9 drops October 26th via Equal Vision Records. Pre-order it here.
In our latest K! Pit episode at The Well in Brooklyn, New York, Saves The Day remind us why they’re the godfathers of pop punk-infused emo.
Not that listening to these essential albums will help you define ‘post-rock’ any better…
