Following their hiatus between 2017 and 2019, Washington pop-punks You, Me, And Everyone We Know have returned with a new single called ‘F.I.N.E.’.
It’s the band’s first offering new material since 2015, and was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Kory Gable, Ben Roth, and John Smith at Kaleidoscope Studios in Lancaster, PA.
Vocalist Ben Liebsch spoke further on how the song came to be.
“For current fans, ‘F.I.N.E.’ is the ‘Carolina Heat’ of the next release, the why and how we got here. For everyone else, ‘F.I.N.E.’ is about finding the enlightenment we all seek during the healing process after a traumatic experience.
I was coping a lot through food and energy drinks. Just managing, really, and by that, I mean surviving. I was full-on coming into my own as a personal trainer and digging into the lifestyle of business ownership as a way to keep myself busy and distracted. I was working too much while trying to deal with everything, and then I was re-traumatized. Anyone familiar with P.T.S.D. knows there is a whole litany of symptoms that are not just mental, but physical, and it all came to a head last December when a broom fell in my bathroom. My body was so overwhelmed by stress and physical activity that it just hit a hard shut down button. I woke up on the floor five minutes later with blood everywhere, and I quickly realized I was exhibiting the signs of a concussion. That is when things with music picked up again.”
The song comes with video that was created by Stephanie O’Byrne, and you can check it out below.
The track is expected to feature on a forthcoming EP or album, more details of which will follow as they develop.
