In case you’ve been wondering what was going on with alt-emo Canadian outfit Safe To Say, we have some great news. Just announced today, the former SideOneDummy Records act has decided to ditch their former name and start anew as Locket.
Talking about the decision behind their new career path, vocalist/guitarist Brad Garcia said, "Two years ago, we decided to walk away from touring or playing shows altogether. As a band, and in my personal life, we weren’t in the healthiest of places. We put things on hold in order to figure out what it was we wanted from this band if it were to continue. Looking back to those first couple months, there was always a chance we’d just put things to bed entirely — especially if the time to ourselves didn’t give us that sense of clarity we were looking for. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case. This break gave us a chance to make adjustments to our personal lives, to rediscover our love for writing and playing together and, most importantly, to resolidify those relationships as people rather than just bandmates.“
Garcia further added, "So now, to come back after all this time with something that feels both familiar yet new, it just makes sense to change our name. And Locket seems fitting. We’re proud of everything we accomplished and were fortunate enough to have experienced as Safe to Say. We can metaphorically wear that pride around our necks moving forward, rather than sweep it under the rug. For the time being, we’ll still play some older songs for those that never got a chance to hear them live. But we’re eager to finally share what’s been kept hush over the last couple of years.”
For those curious about what Locket has in store for 2019, not only has the band signed to Fearless Records joining the likes of Movements and Pierce The Veil but they have also premiered their debut single “Out Of Sight.” To check out the emotional new tune, be sure to look below.
