The Latest:


 New England post-hardcore band Actor Observer  has debuted a brand new music video for a fan-favorite track, “Reuptake,” from their latest album Pareidolia, which is available now from No Sleep Records .

 Greg Marquis vocalist for the band had this to say about the new song:

“The “tortured artist” is an over-glorified trope. I hesitated for years on taking medication to treat my anxiety and depression because I feared that it would change me, that somehow being happier would make me less of an authentic artist or less of my authentic self. The song “Reuptake” is about that internal conflict while being on medication for almost 2 years. It was the first time in almost a decade I could say that I didn’t feel depressed, but it revealed a new problem. I realized so much of my sense of identity was wrapped up in my misery that I didn’t know myself without it. It made me reflect on how much our art and music community lauds the expression of pain and sadness more than the process of healing, and that struck a chord with me.”

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
