“Rock is in many ways our drug of choice, but that doesn’t mean we’re against traditional drugs though!”
That is what the band answer when we ask them what the new single is about. Razorbats release their brand new single ‘(Maybe It’s TimeTo) Break Up The Band’ on Friday February 3rd, through Voices of Wonder/VME. The track is the first single from their upcoming full-length album ‘HitCrazy’, due out in March. ‘(Maybe It’s Time To) Break Up The Band’ both verychildish and grown up at the same time. Musically it’s somewhere between The Hellacopters, Def Leppard and Kiss, with a classic guitar riff, rad solos (yes, multiple solos) and huge singalong chorus that will make the audiences go wild on their upcoming tour. Lyrically the song is about refusing to conform to a normal nine-to-five lifestyle and following your dreams. Even though it can get difficult when you’re not in your twenties anymore and there’s pressure to keep down and steady job and start a family.
