Two years ago, we had the pleasure of hearing a new song from Five Iron Frenzy, “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night.” The song turned out to be just a preview of what was to come; two years have come and gone. We are a three weeks away from the release of Five Iron’s new record, Engine of a Million Plots. The band has finally released the first single from the upcoming record, “Into Your Veins.”

Guitar player and main songwriter Scott Kerr commented on the song writing process.

Musically, this song came together more or less linearly. I started with the opening guitar riff and proceeded from there, adding horns and vocal melody with each section. After handing it off to Reese to write lyrics, however, he had some other ideas for the vocal melody and he really took it to another level. I salvaged the original chorus melody by way of adding it as a textural backing vocal in the bridge. I’m really excited about how it came together.

You can buy the song on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Pre-orders for the record go live at midnight Oct. 29th.
