With the announcement comes a taste of what’s to come, with the release of Tuck Me In.
Set for release on May 31, Tuck Me In is the second single released off the debut album after, the release of 406 earlier this year. With the albums release, the band have announced a tour for the album that will concludes at the Dead Of Winter Festival.
Following the trend of hook laden pop songs with highly trebled guitars, Tuck Me In marks an indicator to the stylistic direction for the album. Despite the fact they claim they were never in search for a sound, the correlations are clear.
Tuck Me In exemplifies this, with a repeated refrain that never attempts to overstay its welcome. While the lyrics exemplify darker themes, which have become more prevalent in recent releases.
“Tuck Me In is a song depicting the typical comedown of the party animal,” explains Radolescent frontman Isaac Atkinson. “Whether it be sleep paralysis or self-induced psychosis, this song depicts the absolute mind fuckery that is experienced on Monday, Tuesday and sometimes even Wednesdays. Don’t be fooled by the pretty voices, this baby is darker then you would expect …”
With new guitarist Kerrod Chad, Prehab was recorded at Queensland’s Blind Boy Studios. Despite the claims that the band are a good time act, Radolescent dispute the fact that they are anything but committed.
“We want to make good music, and we get pissed off at ourselves if we get offstage and had a shit night,” Isaac states. “We go as hard if we played to 10 people as we would to 150.”
