Trophy Eyes fans! Today is a great day as the Australian five-piece have just made a major announcement about their long-awaited follow-up to 2016′s Chemical Miracle.
Ahead of their upcoming fall tour with Neck Deep, Trophy Eyes will be releasing their third full-length album The American Dream August 3rd via Hopeless Records.
When asked about the forthcoming release, frontman John Floreani said: “This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here. As much of the other Trophy Eyes works have been the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.”
In addition to the exciting news about Trophy Eyes’ new album, the band has also shared a brand new single titled “You Can Count On Me” which, according to Floreani, is pretty personal.
“’You Can Count On Me’ [is] a reaction to the negative and judgmental treatment a lot of artists experience on social media today and shines a spotlight on the impact this can have on their mental health.”
“In many ways,” Floreani adds, “'You Can Count on Me’ is a push back - a voice for those who choose not to defend themselves against the growing torch and pitchfork mentality that encircles performers in the era of modern music. Artists used to be a respected breed. With the uprising of social media, it’s as if listeners think they know us. They follow our every move and make judgments on our character based on a photo they may have seen, or a statement someone may have made.”
