“I haven’t been taking everything so seriously, which really helped me to open up,” says Jared Putnam of The March Divide of the new material on “Billions,” the band’s upcoming second album, out October 21st.
Fans of The March Divide will find the new tunes less earnest, but still completely clever. This is evident of the album’s first single “I Told You So,” an uproarious “fuck you” tune about the personal motivation that comes from facing opposition.
“My favorite songs are always old school, messy guitar rock like early REM or Catherine Wheel,” Putnam says of the song. “That’s really what we were going for with this one.”
