New Jersey powerhouse Palisades have today released their latest single “Reaching Hypercritical“ and the accompanying visualizer. The single is the title track from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Reaching Hypercritical’ out on July 22 via Rise Records. Speaking on today’s release, vocalist Brandon Elgar shares:
“’Reaching Hypercritical’ is based around my experience with therapy. I learned that I, and other people who struggle with anxiety, have an “inner bear” inside of us that can sometimes trap us into submission and can keep us from going out into the world and living the best we can. My therapist also told me I have a “hypercritical” thought process. Which means I’m unreasonably critical of myself over the smallest things. We are all our worst critics. This song is just about my brain and how dangerous it can be to me sometimes. “
Palisades most recently released “Better”, which speaks to themes of mental health, including frontman Brandon Elgar‘s experiences with agoraphobia, chronic anxiety, depression, and dissociative disorders (check out Brandon’s video diary here). “My Consequences” was the first drop from ‘Reaching Hypercritical’, and both previous releases together have amassed over 1.1 million streams on Spotify alone and 583,000 views on YouTube.
