“Everyone Cries” tackles the craziness of the world head-on.At the heart of the record, ECHOSMITH cling to the message that drove them from the start which is their mission statement “Music is one of the few things that can unite people,” concludes Noah.I know that may come as a surprise and we are so sorry for the change, but we've been overrun with inspiration lately and have more we would like to add to the album.We will also be pushing our tour back to coincide with the full-length release so we can play new songs for you, so check our website for all the rescheduled dates (and note that all tickets, VIP packages, etc will still be valid! We are so appreciative of your support & patience and we love you all so so much!!!“That indecision was affecting us, so the message is, It’s a bit darker for us, but I think a lot of people can relate to that.” Co-written with an old family friend Leah Haywood, opener “Get Into My Car” gleefully nods to new wave influences like The Cure and Joy Division with its cinematic lyricism, shiny keyboards, and lush refrain, “It talks about how sometimes you have negative voices in your head, but then you find that person who makes them go away,” she says.“That’s totally happening in my relationship.” For “Crazy Love,” they teamed up with a longtime inspiration, One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, to make a love song about The arena-size drums of “Future Me” propel the equivalent of the grade school exercise of writing a letter to your future self.Here you can meet interesting committed singles speaking your common Gothic language and listening to the same Gothic music.
In 2013, teenage siblings from Southern California, ECHOSMITH, brought a lifelong dream to fruition with the release of their debut album As soon as they could hold instruments, they began playing music together as kids.Along the way, the band faced a major change together.After bringing their dream to life, co-founder, guitarist, and big brother Jamie left ECHOSMITH, transitioning focus to his wife and newborn baby.The keyboards, pads, percussion, and vocals became the focal point.We began recording and writing constantly at the same time. There were no narratives; it was all life experiences and truth.” In order to bring that vision to life, the group utilized vintage synths, keys, and drum machines, carefully emphasizing each detail and is the culmination of a year-and-a-half of tirelessly working to define who we are,” continues Noah. The stories we’ve told on this album are our stories that we’re living right now.” Noah’s finger-picked acoustic guitar on “Goodbye” entwines with Sydney’s breathy delivery before bouncing into a danceable refrain colored by island-style keys and heavy bass. “This song was written out of pure frustration with another person who couldn't make up his mind,” reveals Sydney.
