Friendship Commanders: Anywhere (From The Nameless Bride)

After the impressive introductory single that was their upcoming EP's opening cut, The Enemy I Know, Nashville heavy rockers, Friendship Commanders, reveal Anywhere (From The Nameless Bride), another dynamic number that follows in the same vein as their previous work, always with an activist mindset, and revolving around subjects regarding equality and human rights.

On the upcoming Hold On To Yourself the band worked together with Converge's Kurt Ballou and developed a more rigorous and sturdy sound of which both new singles are characteristically expressive.

"The songs and approach on this EP called for a very different energy, in that I had to put as much strength into one stroke as I would have 10 on our previous records," the group's own Jerry Roe reveals  "This also allowed me to open up my drum sounds because the music is much heavier, and called for a bigger, wider sound. The result is all-encompassing and to me, very cinematic. Lyrically, to me, these songs are kind of about evil and suppressive forces and psychology that manifest within a social or familial dynamic, so the music had to go in a heavier and darker place, but also a stronger place since once you get through heartache, confusion and fear, there's tons of insight, wisdom and strength, and the way the tracks are sequenced it ends in victory through personal reflection and acknowledgment. I'm honored and honestly very lucky to be able to play and collaborate with such a strong writer, musician, and singer. This is my favorite thing we've ever done."

Hold On To Yourself releases April 3rd, 2020 through Trimming The Shield Records.
