Pittsburgh pop-punkers Eternal Boy have released a new single and video, “Thirty Something”, ahead of the release of their new album Bad Days Are Over, out April 30 via Four Chord Music.
Following on from previous singles “Nightmare”, “A Long Year”, and “One Dream At A Time”, “Thirty Something” prepares fans for the old-school pop-punk gem that will be their sophomore album (if you don’t count the Spacepimps days), Bad Days Are Over.
“Thirty Something” will no doubt make a lot of fans feel their age, but as always with Eternal Boy’s music, there’s a positive message buried not so deep below the pop-punk brooding.
Bassist Joe Harbaluk says:
“Oh hey, another pop punk song about how growing up is terrible, awful, overwhelming, and overrated. This one, however, has some heart to it. ‘Thirty Something’ is more of a reality check that sometimes things don’t go your way, but that’s ok, because the process is the most important part of any experience. Case in point: being in an independent band.”
Bad Days Are Over is sure to be another record of heartfelt pop-punk, rekindling memories and nostalgia of the Drive-Thru Records era, as well as conjuring up excitement for when fans get to see and hear Eternal Boy live again. The record was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Chris Badami (The Starting Line, The Early November), and mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day, Taking Back Sunday, Sum 41).
Singer/guitarist Rishi Bahl says:
“Bad Days Are Over is a culminating album for us. It was maybe the first time that we wrote songs, recorded those songs, and they turned out how we envisioned them. It features something for every fan of the genre: fast, mid-tempo, happy, sad, hopeful, and depressed. I think it speaks to the emotional roller coaster we have all been enduring.”
