Speaking on the band’s brand new release, vocalist and YouTube sensation, Lauren Babic shares
“We’re so excited to release our first single to kick off this new era for the band. “Father Said” marks a huge accomplishment for us – it’s a perfect blend of the heaviness from our album Redeemer and the cheekiness from our EP Wanderer, mixed with new pop and synth elements we’ve never experimented with before. This is the most innovative sound we’ve ever achieved and the most vulnerable message we’ve ever put forth. We especially can’t wait to bring it to the live stage.Thematically, it’s about growing up with toxic family members. It’s a very personal song to me and KVLTURE who I wrote it with. I hope people connect to it.”
Red Handed Denial delicately balances heavy subject matter with soaring melodies. The Toronto quartet continue to captivate audiences with this hybrid. After racking up over 5 million-plus streams independently and touring with various heavy hitters, the group draw up the perfect escape plan from a world on the brink as they launch their new era, highlighted by today’s release.
Following 2013’s Stories of Old, the Wanderer EP yielded “Trespasser,” which gathered 953K-plus Spotify streams. They only increased their momentum with Redeemer in 2019. “Empire” racked up over 948K Spotify streams. The group surprised audiences everywhere with a cover of “Telephone” by Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, racking up over 1.1 million Spotify streams.
Along the way, Trivium tapped them as an opener, while they shared stages with everyone from Protest the Hero and The Contortionist to I See Stars, Silent Planet, and A Skylit Drive.
