BLAME MY YOUTH - Offer A Nostalgic Journey Through Heartbreak On New Single "The Break"

Following the release of Top 30 Alternative Radio hit “Prizefighter”, Blame My Youth, the alt-rock band making major waves with their rebellious and emotionally charged anthems, return with brand new single, 'The Break' today in collaboration with Billboard Top 100 Producer of 2023, Joey Moi (Morgan Wallen, HARDY). The track is out now via Big Loud Rock. Listen to ‘The Break’ HERE. Watch the official music video below.

Blame My Youth frontman and songwriter Sean Van Vleet, whose musical journey has seen him grace stages such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, takes both a nostalgic look back and a bold step forward with ‘The Break’. Delving deep into personal experiences, his latest self-penned opus takes the listener on a cathartic expedition down the footpaths of heartbreak and vulnerability. Elaborating on it’s creation, Van Vleet shares

“Writing this one with Joey Moi was a real good reminder that my heart hadn’t turned to stone yet. I was happy at the time when we wrote it, but I got to go down memory lane and knock on a door I had all boarded up. Somebody had asked me recently if I’d ever been broken up with before, and I said ‘yep’ and that was that. A couple weeks later when Joey and I were writing, I continued answering the question in this song.”

Blame My Youth saw early success with their first single “Right Where You Belong” landing as the closing credits theme on the GRAMMY-nominated soundtrack of hit movie, ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’. Their debut EP, ‘Dance With My Demons’, provided a masterclass in Van Vleet’s knack for blending intricate emotional lyricism with huge, infectious hooks.

After a summer of touring across the UK and the US, the band is back to crafting the high-energy, infectious rock songs that have become their signature. Tracks like the recent “Fantastic” and “Prizefighter” demonstrate the unique blend of experience and energy that the band bring to the table.

With “The Break”, Blame My Youth invites listeners on a poignant exploration of the bittersweet moments of love loss and the personal growth that follows. It's a song that resonates with anyone who's ever faced the turmoil of heartbreak, and still finds the strength to move forward. Combining seasoned experience with a vibrant, fresh energy, Blame My Youth are not just making music; they're perfectly encapsulating the raw moments and emotions that define the human condition against a backdrop of chart-conquering alt-rock anthems.
