Last month, the US pop punk crew Light Years announced their forthcoming record ‘Afterlife,’ due out November 30th via Rude Records. The 11-track corker was recorded and produced by Will Yip who also produced the band’s 2015 classic ‘I’ll See You When I See You.’ Off the release comes a brand new single ‘Burning In My Blood,’ a song about frustration and anger, but also a glimpse of hope and positivity all at the same time.
Frontman Pat Kennedy elaborates: “Sometimes it feels like things haven’t exactly gone my way over the past few years, but I still have that same fire and drive in me to not give up as I’ve always had. The rest of the record also shares this same idea. We are older now and realizing what is most important in our own lives, and just trying to focus on the best parts of it even when things are feeling pretty bleak.”
‘Burning In My Blood’ follows their lead single ‘Back Then,’ which was paired with a unique throwback video, featuring footage from the band growing up. The song has a classic simple rock and roll vibe melded with some new school punk rock elements. Lyrically it was written about the band’s first time on the road, between high school and college, setting the tone sonically for the record.
