Music is all about the sound. Even with a great image and millions of dollars behind you, an artist can not succeed if the audience can't groove on their tunes.
Hailing from Brick, NJ, Set It Free has grasped their audience with their hard sound an relatable lyrics. Since forming in 2011, Set It Free has already grabbed the attention of Maria Mar, host of Jersey Rock on 95.9 The Wrat and Los Angeles record label Gas Can Music. They've shared the stage with top acts such as Senses Fail, Megadeth and Disturbed. They have also shared the stage with national rockers, Trapt, and caught the ear of bassist Pete Charell.
Charell dug Set It Free's sound so much, he produced their upcoming LP, “Don't Stand Alone,” which will be available nationwide this summer.
I've gotten a peek at a few of the new albums tracks, and I must say, they are in constant rotation now. It may be because it's the first single they released off the album, but my personal favorite track is “Lungs Bleed.”
First of all, “Lungs Bleed” has everything I look for in a Rock song. Joey DeAngelo and Mike Gurnari shred on the guitar, Patrick Dwyer slaps the hell out of the bass, Victor Pascale whales on the skins and Andrew Williams brings it all together with beautifully melodic vocals.
To me, “Lungs Bleed” is all about taking the negativity you hold inside and releasing it. The message they seem to send is that you can't fully live your life and experience the world for what it is when you're focused on everything holding you down and back.
Any fan of Rock and Roll would be foolish to not check out the new single, “Lungs Bleed.” It has the energy to get you pumped without the “vocals” of someone screaming at you through the speakers. Instead, the intense instrumentals are met with vocals you can not only understand, but appreciate for the words that they are. The rest of the album, “Don't Stand Alone,” follows in the same suit, making it one you must get.
Set It Free will be releasing their new album, “Don't Stand Alone,” at a double CD release show with fellow NJ rockers, Breathing Blue, releasing their new album “Inner Animal” on July 7 at the Asbury Lanes in Asbury, NJ.
Much like “Don't Stand Alone,” this is a show you can't afford to miss!
