Milwaukee’s Juiceboxxx has given us a new single titled Ripping Up My Soul.
It is the lead single off his forthcoming EP, Never Surrender Forever, which is being released next week via Dangerbird Records.
Ripping Up My Soul is all about the rock and roll lifestyle as Juiceboxxx himself tells us:
“This song is about a subculture as a weird spiritual surrogate and trying to navigate a life after years of rock and roll damage. Coming to grips with this force that has both given your life meaning but also made it deeply confusing. Sometimes I feel trapped in the basement, the dive bar, the warehouse, whatever… There is a punk rock version of “Catholic guilt” and I don’t really know how to process it. Some people end up dying. But I continue to write songs. And try to take it one day at a time.”
Ripping Up My Soul has an almost addicting guitar riff that fits in perfectly with the power punk feel of the song.
