Gab De La Vega shares his thoughts:

“’Off My Chest’ is the first single off my upcoming fourth album ‘Life Burns,’ which is coming out March 1, 2024. This album is dense in meaning, and this song makes no exception. It is actually one of the most meaningful of the whole album. It is a very personal song, but I think it can resonate with the listeners, I’m sure some people out there would easily relate if they had similar experiences growing up.

“The way interactions shape the way we are, especially in the formative years, is often under-looked. It took me a while to understand that some features of my personality exist and to face them openly, to be outspoken and verbal about them, felt immediately redemptive and even liberating during the writing of the lyrics.

“It’s easier to hide our head in the sand in front of the negatives, especially when they are part of our human experience, but to work on them, face them, and process them is the only way to accept everything and move on and possibly grow up.

Musically, it’s gives a glimpse of what the new album is going to be like. I think that you can feel the rage and at the same time the desire for something positive as a response to it in the music. This album sees a lot of this honest approach in the feelings that each song can evoke. I can’t really wait to play this song and this album live!”

Gab De La Vega talks about the video:

“We shot the video in a live production warehouse; we wanted it to have the look and the feel of the energy the full band show of mine with The Open Cages has. We wanted it to look organic, simple, authentic (for how authentic a music video can be) and have the image match the energy of the music. It’s us, practicing our song, ready to leave on tour and set the stages on fire!”

Life Burns will be released on March 1, 2024. The album will be released in North America through Sell The Heart Records. Sell The Heart Records hails from Berkeley, California.
