Los Angeles based Rad Horror has released a new single and video “Everybody But Myself.” Do you care about someone else and while doing that ignore what you need? This is the message of this pensive indie rock song.
The band’s Dylan Jackson Scott says “Everybody But Myself’ creates an inner dialogue with one’s self about the realization you’ve given everything you have to people in your life, and yet they yearn and beg for more. It sometimes takes a bit of time to learn how much and for how long you’ve been taken advantage of, whether in love and caring or in monetary and material objects. We enjoy wonderful and amazing times with these people, but great advantage is taken and rears its ugly head… We bloom into colorful flowers of resentment: We become hideous versions of our once recognizable selves.”
He added: “With the “Everybody But Myself” video, which was directed by the band’s Cory Ingram – we decided to create a simple visual, depicting an objective look at yourself. It’s the perspective we all long for, the truest form of self-awareness. In everyday society, we find it hard to look at ourselves in the mirror and tell ourselves the truth. Who are we really? How well do we truly know ourselves? Are we all victims hiding behind our collective unconscious? Sometimes it’s hard to know.”
Rad Horror has grown a cult following in their city of Los Angeles; they are known for their high-energy performances and audience sing-alongs. Older songs like ‘Benzos and Cigarettes’, ‘Stay Out’, “Teenage Love’ and ‘Mad At The World’ have been streamed more than 5 million times and the band has already toured Europe–so they are known internationally! The band is planning a 2021 tour and will announce the dates soon. Rock at Night will give you the details as soon as we have them!
