Melodic emo & pop infused punk rockers THE INTERROGATION premiere new summer hit single

THE INTERROGATION by Elizabeth Turner
Inspired by the melodious and high-energy deliveries from acts like New Found Glory, Coheed and Cambria, and Story of the Year, Vancouver based indie emo punk rock / post hardcore act THE INTERROGATION joins us today with a special premiere of their new heartfelt and vigorous track “Summer Love (In Hell)”. The new offering packs a powerful punch, it serves as a great follow up to their previous single “Kick It Off”, and we’re thrilled to give you its first listen below.

There’s a funny thing that happens at summertime in the Pacific Northwest: if you aren’t out enjoying every single sunny day, you’re met with powerful feelings of guilt. Shame. A deep and permeating FOMO for every lonely minute spent indoors.

Vancouver BC’s music scene is a tough one for any band to navigate, but The Interrogation’s Thom Turner is taking it in stride. The New York native is hoping to bring a little east coast flavor to the sleepy PNW, starting by getting people of all ages out of their homes and turning up to shows, because he knows better than anyone what it can be like to be trapped indoors for reasons beyond your control.

For example: when he first wrote the lyrics to the new single Summer Love (In Hell), he was living through a hot and lovely Vancouver August while acutely depressed over the recent passing of his mother. One particular night when families and children were out playing and partying in the sun, Turner found that he could find in himself nothing but anger for those out enjoying the hot summer evening.

For fans of: Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember.

Comments Thom Turner: “Lyrically, this song is about that feeling of longing for something you don’t think you will ever experience again. Summer has always been special to me; every year my mom, dad, and I would spend the summer hanging out together by the lake and it’s always been my favorite time of year. So, the summer after my mother passed away was an especially brutal time. It was beautiful outside and all the local kids were having fun but I felt like I would never again experience that kind of summer joy. While the lyrics give voice to the despair of that feeling, the music is built to uplift and remind listeners of that ephemeral sense of hope that summer brings; anything is possible. The melodies and use of major keys, helped me realize that while the song is about a very deep hurt, it is not without hope and to me, that is what makes this a poignant SUMMER ROCK SONG!!”

Reminded of similar summers from when he was young and things weren’t going his way, Turner sat down that evening and penned Summer Love. Among The Interrogation’s finest work to date, the raunchy tune is a blast of soaring revelry, thick with tinges of metal and punk and Massachusetts hardcore; hopeful in its incendiary major-key riffs yet cauterized by the intensity of Turner’s transparency.

“Summer Love (In Hell)” lyrics:

The Sun is Shining and the children are at play
they usher in the day
Golden Rays are streaming in and warmth is in the air
And i just don’t care

Armored deep in blankets
I am safe in here

Summer Love Go Away
Come on back another day
When you have learned what you want.
Summer love ain’t the only thing I’ve been dreaming of
Winter days are long enough
I wish these Summer days were Gone.

The smell of fresh cut grass remindsme how we met
i’d be shredded in the end.
The Sounds of laughter Splashing loudly from the pooI
There is nothing you can do

Drowning deep in Sadness
At least my safe in here

Summer Love Go AwayCome on back another day
When you have learned what you want.
Summer love ain’t the only thing I’ve been dreaming of
Winter days are long enough
I wish these Summer days were Gone.

Its not fair. That I lay here in despair.
When all i ever wanted was to share it all with you.
While i understand your reasons and respect all of your needs
Why did it have to be this way, Why Today?

Summer Love Go Away
Come on back another day
When you have learned what you want.
Summer love ain’t the only thing I’ve been dreaming of
Winter days are long enough
I wish these Summer days were Gone.
