Chasing Yesterday is a wonderful snapshot of a time so often forgotten. Play it loud, you cool cats!
The group co-wrote the song with Tomo Miličević, formerly of 30 Seconds To Mars. And lyrically, Chasing Yesterday offers up a more contemporary viewpoint. It’s a song about stepping into the future, despite what obstacles and challenges may surround you.

Play it loud, you cool cats!
