The Offspring’s Todd Morse has released his second solo single of 2022.
Melodic punk anthem “Screaming Babies” takes aim at the lack of empathy in modern society, particularly on social media.
Speaking on the new song, Morse adds: “I’ve been traveling for long enough to have transitioned from the single guy getting annoyed by the screaming babies, to being a dad and having empathy for the innocents and zero patience for the whining adults.”
Having released his debut solo album in 2019, Morse reignited his solo work this year, signing to Manic Kat Records for “Everything Fun (Is Bad For Me)”.
Morse has also detailed an upcoming mini tour, including two dates with Wheatus.
12 – Mechanicsburg, PA @ JB Lovedrafts
13 – Philadelphia, PA @ World Café Live w/ Wheatus
14 – New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge w/ Wheatus
15 – Amityville, NY @ Amityville Music Hall
Todd Morse’s stellar, three-decade career has seen the Los Angeles native play with some of punk rock’s premiere names. The Offspring, punk pioneers H20 and Juliette Lewis, and The Licks all take their place on an impressive CV.
Twenty-nineteen’s debut solo album Late Bloomer was another addition to the legacy, a nod to the clash between that inner kid and one’s wiser self. Musically, the record harks back to Morse’s childhood influences such as The Clash, Tom Petty, and The Rolling Stones.
This year has seen Morse sign to indie-punk label Manic Kat Records. New single “Screaming Babies” tackles the “take-offense” crowd and rues the demise of dialogue, with a punctuating punk rock vibe, abundant with pace and positivity.
