Drummer Aaron Rosa shares:
“‘Sober’ was initially inspired from seeing people close to me struggle with addiction. It wasn’t limited to just drugs and alcohol, but recognizing addiction in relationships with other people, as well as unhealthy habits in their day-to-day life. Sometimes we can be led down a dark path where we become obsessed with things that are just not good for us. We can ignore our loved one’s words of help and concern. We yearn to numb ourselves. Constant stumbling through life just wanting to feel a certain way which can blind our hearts as well as our judgment.
This song is the journey of someone that desperately wants out of the stranglehold of their vices. To see through clear and sober eyes sometimes starts with that acceptance that something is screwed up and needs to change. At the end of the day, this song is about choosing yourself and your overall health.”
