Currently out on the Vans Warped Tour slaughtering unsuspecting showgoers (figuratively, of course), Stick To Your Guns has finally revealed news regarding their upcoming album.
Titled as True View, the band’s sixth full-length album is set to hit stores October 13th via Pure Noise Records.
“I really wanted to intentionally create an album that sonically reflects the feeling of modern life: depression, anger, fear, hope, happiness, forgiveness and clarity,” explains guitarist Josh James. “A feeling of breaking through the dark shit in life and the journey of the struggle that ends up elevating you to a new, smarter, stronger, better version of yourself.”
Doing their best to represent that theme pretty well, the band also debuted their brand new single “The Sun, The Moon, The Truth: Penance of Self” which, according to vocalist Jesse Barnett, is an incredible dive into self-awareness.
"Something I see in a lot of people, including almost every one of my peers, is the inability to be honest with oneself,” says Barnett. “Everyone thinks they’re right. Everyone can’t seem to get a grip on the reality of being self-aware. I was this way and I’m sure I still can be. I was an incredibly selfish person who did whatever I felt like doing. I would leave a trail of destruction everywhere I went and my loved ones would always give me the pass — ‘Oh well, that’s Jesse.’
"I came to a point where I realized no one is going to keep me accountable for my actions but myself. I lost some of the most important things in my life these last few years and I had nowhere left to hide. I had to face my fire. I had to finally, for fucking once, live with the hurt I created. I had to own my mistakes and it’s been the heaviest weight I’ve ever had to carry.”
