release new single
The song premiered on Impose Magazine where the band shared, “This is a song we wrote around Christmas time last year. Brian, our guitarist, was in the mood to look at holiday lights. And when he came home, this is the first thing he played. Brent, our lead singer, added the chorus, and the lyrics ended up being about feeling broken and crumbled on the ground — but reaching for redemption and believing someone might be out there that can help you. It’s the opening track on the new album.”
(Brooklyn, NY) Not unlike many bands comprised of direct family members, The Clydes were formed with a lifelong reverence for the classic rock stylings played during amber-hued days gone by. That sense of warmth in sound established by brothers Brent (lead vox, rhythm guitars, keys) and Brian Johnson (lead guitars, keyboards, effects) serves as the aural base for them to explore everything from complex personal relationships to narrative fantasy in equal measure. Joined by Andrew Lord Chandler (bass, keys, backing vox) and MadMardigan (drums, backing vox), The Clydes are now gearing up to release their most complete vision to date.
So The Story Goes, a ten-track full-length from The Clydes, is due out October 20th via Mint 400 Records.
As always, Brent and Brian wrote the songs including ones that focus on emotional and personal conundrums (like “Holly Speaks,” about feeling motionless but wanting more) and songs about non-traditional topics (like “The Vampire Of Hanover,” about a German serial killer from the early 20th century).
