Johnny Stranger has returned with the release of his new single “Follow My Footsteps.” Listen here
Heavy and suspenseful, the song showcases the band’s flair for soft tranquility and epic intensity. “Follow in my Footsteps” is a dark meditation on how war is passed down through generations. The song’s lyrics are from the point-of-view of a small boy witnessing his father departing to war and his solemn oath to continue his father’s crusade. Singer/Songwriter Peter Anthony wrote the song to be universal, stating “I was thinking about human nature. With all the horrific things that we as a species are capable of, they can start from such an innocent place.” Johnny Stranger began their journey in WA State, where they grew their following touring the Pacific Northwest and even moving to Boston to continue their concept album-making endeavors. Now, following a 10-year hiatus, the band is reformed in Los Angeles and releasing music from their forthcoming album: “Valkyrie”. Keep an eye on JohnnyStranger.com for blogs, updates, and show dates.
