Stepson, the high-octane punk/hardcore outfit from Brisbane, Australia, have revealed new details regarding their forthcoming full-length. ‘Help Me, Help You’ will be released worldwide on March 26 via SharpTone Records. The band has also shared the video for the new single ‘Deeper Sleep.’ Watch it down below.
“‘Deeper Sleep’ is about the insecurities and subconscious frailties that surface while we are dreaming,” the band says about the song. “Everyone at some point has had a dream or nightmare that feels all too real. The lyrics of ‘Deeper Sleep’ represent that, but more specifically, the way we get treated if we have done something to someone we love in a larger-than-life dream and they have projected it back onto us.”
Singer Brock Alan Conry explains a little further, saying: “‘Deeper Sleep’ is also about the inner turmoil experienced every day from past trauma can affect present and future relationships to the point where even dreams feel real. Insecurity is contagious and unfortunately can be transferred from person to person. This song is a helpless plea to help someone they love and care about from their own mind.” ‘Deeper Sleep’ is the most outside-the-box track that Stepson have released to date. “We tried to do a lot of different things, technically, like dance beats, more staccato guitar work, and a solo toward the back end that makes for a really cool crescendo,” the band shares. “The song is a toe-tapper that carries a genuine sense of motion that makes you want to break out into a boogie at any given moment.”
