Trophy Eyes have released “More Like You” – the second single from their upcoming new album The American Dream out August 3 on Hopeless Records. Fans can stream the song now at smarturl.it/MoreLikeYouVisual or through Apple Music and Spotify. The song had its radio debut yesterday on Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter.
The band previously released the lead single and music video for “You Can Count On Me“. The song is a push back, a reaction to the negative and judgmental treatment a lot of artist’s experience on social media today and shines a spotlight on the impact this can have on their mental health.
The American Dream – the third album in the Trophy Eyes collection – is based on the idea that there’s still utopia left on this this planet – a place where one can start again and live a peaceful life, forsaking the trail of destruction that threatened to derail it all.
The album also serves as a coming of age fable, in which lead vocalist John Floreani takes an introspective look at who he is today. His story is brought to life in vivid colour with string arrangements produced by Chris Craker, who can list the soundtrack to Hans Zimmer’s score of “Interstellar” and Hans Zimmer “The Classics” on his production resume.
“This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here,” Floreani explains. “As much of the other Trophy Eyes works have been the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.”
The American Dream follows on from their critically acclaimed 2016 album Chemical Miracle, which debuted at #8 in Australia and was a significant launch pad for the band as they dominated Australia with back-to-back tours sold out months in advance in some of the biggest rooms in the country. Trophy Eyes also went on to conquer the globe with headline tours in North America and the UK, both slapping sold out signs on box offices around their respective territories.
Trophy Eyes now leads a new wave in rock music, blending their punk and hard-core roots with modern rock and pop sensibilities. Known for their brutally honest and emotional storytelling and lyricism combined with one of the most energetic live shows on the circuit, Trophy Eyes are set to takeover with the drop of The American Dream on August 3.
The band is set to tour across North America this fall with more dates to be announced. A full list of dates and cities can be found below.
The album is now available for physical and digital pre-order. Those who pre-order digitally will receive and instant grat download of “You Can Count On Me” and “More Like You”.
