Set It Off have released a new track and music video, “Projector” via Fearless Records. The new track comes before the release of their next album Elsewhere, which is scheduled to release on March 11. Though the band is used to more of a pop-punk sound, Elsewhere shows musical growth and change from the band in a purely pop realm.
“Projector” lets out the band’s pent-up aggression and emphasizes that people need to listen more and talk less. The video for the track, bright and filled with neon colors, shows the band facing and being controlled by “projector people” at their every move.
While discussing the inspiration of “Projection,” Cody Carson (lead singer/lyricist) describes the amount of people that end up entering my life that are incapable of saying ‘I’m wrong,’ ‘I messed up,’ or ‘I’m sorry’ is baffling to me. Instead, you’re met with finger pointing, excuses, and anger. They project their issues onto other people, so they don’t have to face it themselves… I just want people to be able to turn this up as loud as it can go and vent about all those irritating people in their lives.”
Exclusive Elsewhere vinyl, hoodies, hats, and shirts can be pre-ordered through Fearless Records.
Coinciding with the new track, Set It Off started their Welcome to Elsewhere Tour in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and will hit most major cities across the US before ending in California on Feb 16.
