The band have premiered their new song, “Popular Kid”, via Alt. Press today.
Front man Chris Messer tells AP, “The song is about my life growing up, but we all feel it’s relatable to all people who feel disenfranchised or made to feel bad about themselves. Basically, it lets them know that they aren’t alone; and the people that matter in life, don’t care if they are popular or not, they care about them a human being on a much deeper level.”
