Talk Me Off is a punk band out of Richmond, Virginia that formed in 2017. Their new EP, Abyss, will be released on April 20, in partnership with Smartpunk Records, Swamp Cabbage, Gunner, and Wallride Records.
New Noise Magazine is proud to premiere the video for Talk Me Off’s latest single, “Alone in the Dark,” below:
Ryan Cacophony and Holly Herzog had met performing in a Screeching Weasel cover band for a children’s hospital charity. After throwing the idea of starting a new band around, they got Christian Moquin involved and just a few months later released the first self-titled EP, released on Doctor and Mechanic Recordings and Between the Days Records.
The songs had themes of bad relationships and terrible mental health. There were some East Coast/Canada tours that followed, playing with bands like Off With Their Heads, Night Birds, The Lillingtons, and The Lawrence Arms. In 2020, they released their first full-length record, Cursed, after signing to Smartpunk Records, with the help of Say-10 Records and Gunner Records.
On the release of “Alone in the Dark,” the band states:
“This one’s about the lack of an afterlife and being content with dying. No more problems, peace at last. It’s a selfish thought and one that I don’t have often but passing on to just complete darkness instead of a grandiose fantasy of heaven or even hell is more appealing to me.”
