Tonight, we invite you to kickoff the night right with some new music from Talk to the Stranger. Vocalist Samuel Laponis spoke to HM Magazine about the background behind the song they’re debuting, “Blank Faces”:

The meaning of this song comes from an observation of our current generation. It tells the story of someone observing our generation and seeing nothing but people who are unable to think for themselves and forge their own identity, while questioning his own identity as well. We want this song to be left open to interpretation, and let this listener decide what this song means to them personally.  We are extremely excited to be sharing this with our fans not only because we feel very strongly about this message, but also because this was the first song we wrote after our guitarist returned from a year long deployment with the Navy. All of the passion for music we had built up after a year of getting by with a guitarist at the other end of the globe was poured into this song.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
