“The only thing I have to offer that is truly ‘original’ is myself,” explains singer Caleb Chapman. “I know this to be true but don’t always believe it. ‘Original Material’ is about the on-going fight to get out of my own way.”
A confluence of serendipity, fate, and inspiration led the band back to their roots lyrically. The album incorporates a storied family history going back generations mixed with folklore surrounding a runaway to create an album worthy of being a classic novel. The band teamed up with Ben Shive, who produced Colony House’s debut album When I Was Younger, to tap into the freedom of their formative years as a band.
‘Original Material’ is the second track to be taken from Leave What’s Lost Behind, following the release of lead single ‘Looking For Some Light’.
