“Some people group together in cliques to be ‘popular,” says LOVE PAST BLUE‘s vocalist and lyricist Clio Cadence about the unapologetic anthem. “I’ve noticed that these people start dressing alike, talking alike and acting alike. The people who stand out and are themselves have more fun, because they can do what they want to do! We are the next generation, we are the change in this world. We can stand up for what we believe in, and we can stand up for what is right, no matter what anyone else thinks.”
LOVE PAST BLUE—Cadence (17), guitarist Jack Hickman (15), bassist Joe Galate (18) and drummer Logan Ellis Sheppard (16)–fashion a sound that straddles the line between pop-rock and rock. It’s heavily guitar driven and infused with a hint of funk; there are influences of Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, and Evanescence. They’ll bring their energetic and musically skillful stage presence to their Dallas, TXhometown for a Warped Tourperformance on Friday, July 6.
In the studio, the band is putting the finishing touches on a new EP produced by Sylvia Massy due out this summer via Dark Spark Music. Meanwhile,LOVE PAST BLUE has a grasp on their muse and is working on a subsequent recording project produced by Mark Younger Smith (guitarist and writer for Billy Idol) and Jimmy Quill; exact details on both projects TBA soon.
In late 2017, the band released “No Means No,” a song which Clio Cadence penned in March 2017 based off personal harassment experiences prior to recording it in July 2017. The song debuted with AllAccess.com (12/7) and Clio spoke in depth about the song with an in-depth interview with The Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
