It’s pretty amazing to see how far post-hardcore stars The Color Morale have come in the 5 years since We All Have Demons was released 5 years ago. These days, they’re main support to bands like The Word Alive, and just put out their 4th album, Hold On Pain Ends. It’s impressive considering they were relative unknowns for the longest time, but hard work and talent are reaping the rewards.
The reason I’ve always found TCM interesting is due to the depth of the lyrics. They’re sometimes simple to decipher – sometimes less so – but there is an honesty there that not many bands have. I’m not sure I’ve ever related to a song more than “Learned Behavior” (off their Know Hope album from 2013).
Either way, the story of vocalist Garret Rapp is a very interesting one. I can relate to him personally on many levels – being bullied and picked on for being different really hit home for me, and it’s interesting to see how overcoming that and rising above it can really affect your life in a positive way.
Anyway, I digress. Check out the full audio interview with Garret after the jump, and if you’re not familiar with the band, check out what I believe to be their best overall song, “Saviorself”, as well.
“I won’t quit until I know that I truly tried”.
