The pop-punk quartet from Richmond, Virginia release the fourth single off their soon to be released EP
“This record is our viewpoint on being a part of the apocalyptic generation,” the band reveals in a statement. “We obsess over zombie films, live in fear of the daily news, and constantly foresee the end of the world. Or rather, the world as we know it. A generation written off as lazy and self-centred, we’re taught to think that something broken can’t be fixed from within.”
About the EP’s title track, vocalist John Carteret reveals: “Lie Your Way Out seems to be this pervasive mentality when it comes to mental health. As someone who struggles with Bipolar Disorder, it’s often difficult to be open and honest about my headspace. As a result, you end up lying to your family, your friends, even yourself. It becomes easier to exit a conversation rather than explain why you’re staring through that person on the other side. Put on a face, go to work, be a ‘functional’ member of society. Most of us lie every day.”
The quartet crafts anthems that immediately connect with the kids who pack clubs and theatres to see newer bands like Neck Deep and the older set that cherish early records from Fall Out Boy and Lifetime, but with their distinctive spin. All over the Richmond, Virginia based band’s catalogue, Telltale spin stories that are as relatable as growing pains.
Telltale have steadily charted their path through dynamic performances and friendly charm, supporting bands like Broadside, As It Is, Real Friends, Assuming We Survive, and Young Culture, both at home and on the road.
These guys are perfecting the recipe with heavy doses of saccharine sentiment and self-aware camp. At a rapid pace, Telltale continues to carve a new heart into the solid tree of pop-punk. They are new champions for the underdog, a group who makes the everyday soundtrack for the uninvited, brokenhearted, and cast aside.
Lie Your Way Out will be released on March 25 via Rude Records.
