NEW SINGLE ‘CARRY ON” OUT NOW!
Yes! We are releasing a brand new single today – and what a great way to start the week.
I wrote ‘Carry On’ before the pandemic but it’s development was very much affected by it. After releasing ‘Answered Prayers’ at the end of 2019, we were keen to get back in the rehearsal studio and start working on songs for our next album in earnest. ‘Get Out Of Dodge’ and ‘Carry On’ came up quite early in the rehearsal process and both songs immediately struck us as having something special and we couldn’t wait to get into the studio and record them.
Unfortunately COVID-19 had other plans for the world and we we all went into total lockdown for a few months. During that time we only got to talk to each other over Zoom, which was not exactly conducive to rehearsal and recording rock ’n’ roll songs. I know that it’s possible to make music remotely but for a living, breathing rock group like us we need to feel the energy that circulates between us when we’re playing together. That is actually the most important thing we try to capture on record and on stage.
Eventually we were able to crawl out of our hidey holes (though we had to return again this year) and despite the interruptions we managed to record a few singles as well as finish our next album. That’s coming out next year (in a couple of months) but right now we’re proud to present ‘Carry On’
It’s a song about doing the best you can despite “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” (as Shakespeare put it). Whether it’s co-workers who make your life harder or the world in general, sometimes you just have to dig deep and get things done to the best of your ability even though you know your efforts may go unrewarded and unappreciated. You’ll know what you achieved, and that’s the most important thing.
