Right now, Pierce is releasing two new songs, that are confusingly billed as The Drums and Johnny Pierce, kind of like he battling in opposition to himself. That could be intentional, contemplating that each tracks are about betrayal within the band sense.
“I Didn't Realize” and “You Lied” had been each initially recorded again in 2012, again when the band was nonetheless a correct band , and Pierce defined that the songs are companion items for one another. Right here’s what Pierce needed to say in regards to the pair of songs:
“It’s straightforward to write down a music if you find yourself within the afterglow of an epiphany. “I used to be popping out of a deep grief after a band that I had beloved deeply and deeply deserted devastating outcomes. I used to be so inexperienced, I used to be desirous to please, desirous to have household, looking forward to approval. There have been and nonetheless individuals who look nice to like themselves. It nonetheless occurs as we speak, however I'm extra delicate and conscious when it begins taking place. I didn't understand, however now I do.
[…] I used to be calling out an ex-band member on saying one thing very highly effective to me. One thing that made me really feel I wanted him and couldn’t discover success or happiness with out him … He was very intelligent and whereas I typically noticed indicators of that, I let myself ignore the warnings. I felt determined, he knew it, and so he pounced. When he disappeared, I used to be blindsided. All the pieces he mentioned on that balcony in Brooklyn was a lie. Years later, I’ve healed and am now in a spot of higher understanding, however I let myself, it's nonetheless really easy to really feel the ache of that violent chapter of abandonment.
