Oct. 8 — Pop punk band Summer Years debuted its new single and companion video this week.
The band premiered its new single, ‘The Picture You Paint‘ and its companion video Friday. The single is the second single from the band’s forthcoming EP, You Can’t Live There Forever. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘This Light‘ June 15. The EP’s official release date is under consideration.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘The Picture You Paint’ is a catchy, upbeat composition. It will appeal to fans of works from bands, such as Blink-182, All Time Low, and New Found Glory.
The lyrical theme featured in the new single delivers a contemplative message, which band member Mike Liorti discussed in a prepared statement.
“The Picture You Paint’s’ overall premise is dealing with doubt,” said Liorti. “As musicians, we kinda live a life of constant Show & Tell to our fans, friends, and family. These days, especially, even the most passionate/understanding supporters & teammates can quickly lose touch of the artists’ vision/potential and basically dismiss them entirely. The smallest comment/action of doubt can be very potent and contagious (sometimes even making its way into the artists’ mind), so the song is coming from a Relic/Lifer’s evolved mindset of understanding the bliss/oasis that comes from creating art for nobody but themselves and letting the dominoes fall as they may.”
Additionally, Liorti talked about the song’s video in the statement.
“The video is a compilation of the post-pandemic live shows we’ve been so honored and lucky to play and capture thanks to the help of our extremely supportive local scene,” he said.
