‘a pill for loneliness’ is out OCT 4. ?pre-order artist excl vinyl + merch on the OFFICIAL STORE (9amET in bio) i wasn’t always going to call this record ’a pill for loneliness’. it actually had another name up until the last second. i was watching the news one night and something i saw made me change it. they were talking about how researchers are trying to create an actual pill for loneliness. i thought it was pretty awful that we live in world that is making it necessary for us to need a pill to cure being lonely. i realized music was like my pill for loneliness. it allowed me to feel like i had somebody else in my life. when I was younger, all I wanted to do was write a song that made someone feel the way I felt when i connected to music. ‘a pill for loneliness’ is the right title. it is the best way to describe this album and the band. thanks for listening.
