Punk rock outfit Urethane featuring legendary Hall of Fame professional skateboarder, a cultural icon, and guitarist Steve Caballero has revealed their very first single ‘Gravity.’ Their debut album ‘Chasing Horizons’ was produced, engineered, and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Sum 41, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Pennywise) and is due out on September 24th via Cyber Tracks.
The music video features renowned artist Mark de Salvo along with skateboarding legend and actor Kevin Staab who’s known for his work on Thrashin’ (1986), Barge at Will (1989), and The Last Day of Summer (2007). The song is now available on music streaming services. “We’re very honored to have Kevin Staab star in our video,” explains Steve Caballero. “For one, he’s such a recognizable ’80s skateboarding legend. Dude, come on! He’s the one that invented the trick half cab back in 1983.”
‘Chasing Horizons’ is jam-packed with catchy choruses and melodic hooks that range from mid-tempo sing-a-longs to aggressive fist-pumping screamers. Also, it was written during quarantine so the lyrical theme leans a bit dark. From depression (‘Gravity’) to narcissism (‘Avalanches’ feat. Toby Morse of H2O) to the bad traits and genetics we inherit and are forced to live with (‘Inheritance’ feat. Jim Lindberg of Pennywise) to being your own worst enemy (‘Love Letter Bombs’) to contentious relationships (‘What You Get’) to love conquering even the darkest times (‘What Becomes Of Us’) – lead vocalist and guitarist Tim Fennelly examines the challenges of everyday life.
Urethane formed during the infectious pandemic in 2020. The lineup consists of vocalist/guitarist Tim Fennelly (War Fever), guitarist Steve Caballero (The Faction, Odd Man Out, Soda), bassist Chad Ruiz (Skipjack), and drummer Dylan Wade (The Bombpops). Their musical roots are undeniably influenced by punk rock, pop punk, and melodic hardcore.
The band has a few shows coming up including Punk Rock Bowling, Born-Free Motorcycle Show, Shred Fest, Beachlife Festival, Gutter Fest, and Shred Fest as well as select dates with Agent Orange and Dead Kennedys.
