Los Angeles quartet DEAD POET SOCIETY have returned with the not one but two new tracks. Today, the band have shared their new double single ‘Running in Circles’ / ‘HURT’, complete with double feature music video.
„‚Running in Circles‘ explores the paranoid voices inside our heads,“ the band share. „It’s about the struggle of being real with yourself — avoiding the ‚fake.‘ Sometimes, it feels impossible to avoid, It was written about not being true to yourself and the shame that follows.“
As for ‘HURT,’ the band explain, „There’s not a lot in life that’s more gut-wrenchingly frustrating than trying desperately for years to build a career and having little to show for it. From living on floors and friends‘ couches or out of your car, to working job after job just barely making ends meet, to going on tour and coming back with less money than you had before. We wrote this song as a symbol of that nagging doubt and insecurity. The doubt that consumes you and that can be triggered by people or events in your life, but more often than not, again it’s the voice inside your head.”
The new tracks are the first taste of music from the band since 2021 when they released a deluxe edition of their critically acclaimed and head-turning debut album ‘-!-’ („The Exclamation Album“). The expanded version added six new tracks — a healthy selection of stripped down songs, live tracks, and a remix. DEAD POET SOCIETY have accumulated over 72 million global streams and the band have also enjoyed two Top 15 singles at radio and key playlisting.
DEAD POET SOCIETY continue to spend as much time as possible on the road. Having totally owned the main stage at 2000trees festival this summer, as well as playing a select few sold out UK and European headline dates, the band have now announced an extensive UK & European headline tour, which will set the continent ablaze in February and March in 2024. DEAD POET SOCIETY have previously toured with alt rock powerhouses Biffy Clyro, Badflower, Highly Suspect and BRKN Love; and they’ve played iconic festivals such as Download, Pinkpop, Werchter and Reading & Leeds in recent years.
DEAD POET SOCIETY have certainly established themselves as an intense live act not to be missed!
