Hard rock band Year of the Locust released a lyric video for their single “Sorry”, which is off of their self-titled EP. The track features guitarist Brian Bonds (Florida Georgia Line) and vocalist Brett Hestla (Dark New Day), who also produced it. The band is also currently out on tour with The Zealots.
About the single, vocalist Scotty Mac stated:
“If you listen hard you will hear Brett Hestla’s voice in the background. You’ll also hear an EBow. Brian Bond’s used it to create an eerie background. The song was kind of a wildcard. We knew we had 3 solid tracks on the E.P. So, we took a chance and built Sorry right on the spot, with a heavy riff we had experimented with only one time. I just started speaking the lyrics in the studio and it worked. Things got really deep in the studio when I sang the last line of the second verse. It was definitely a memorable moment. It took Brett a few weeks to send us the final version. He felt compelled to add a guitar overlay in the chorus and we were blown away. Not just because we loved what we heard but also that he was inspired enough to put the extra work in on it. The lyrics are right out of my life. It’s about personal growth and owning up to your mistakes, and we hope you appreciate the realness.”
Year of the Locust consists of Scotty Mac (vocals), Fred Sorrow (bass), Cody Hyde (guitar), and Gabriel Flores (drums). The New York-based band is doing things the old-fashioned way. Rather than relying on false accolades and manufactured hype, they have taken their furious live show and stellar songwriting to the masses directly by touring all 48 continental states and Canada. They have toured North America with the likes of Saliva, Puddle of Mudd, Tantric, Starset, and Palisades along with recently being part of the Shock America Tour with Tesla. In addition, they have shared the stage with bands such as Trapt, Hoobastank, and Candlebox.
Having joined The Label Group’s roster, Year of the Locust plans to release more music videos and hit the road again soon.
