Following on from their third studio album Fight the Good Fight and time supporting Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy on the Hella Mega Tour in 2021, The Interrupters are back with a brand new single, In the Mirror from their forthcoming album In the Wild.
The album is a fourteen track opus that tells a story of survival and resilience from a band that boldly rejects the easy impulses of simply repeating what’s worked before. The LA-based band shared, “We are SO EXCITED to announce our 4th full-length album In The Wild… We put SO MUCH LOVE into this album. Produced by our very own Kevin Bivona, this album takes you on a journey throughout Aimee’s life and every song is a deep delve.”
They continued, stating that, “the making of the record allowed us to have purpose and to rid our closets of all the skeletons lurking.” Something everyone in a post-covid world can understand and relate to.
Alongside the album announcement, the band released their brand new single In The Mirror and accompanying music video created by the critically acclaimed director Kevin Kerslake.
The video perfectly captures the four-piece in a series of mesmerising and fracturing reflections inspired by classic films, television shows, music videos, and Old Hollywood glamour.
Watch the music video for In the Mirror below:
The song itself is a melodically upbeat and catchy song with powerful and thought-provoking lyrics about the struggles of coming to terms with childhood trauma.
When asked about the single, vocalist Aimee Interrupter explained, “I fell into so many destructive patterns trying to come to terms with my childhood… I spent so long trying to run from the pain. No matter how far I ran, there I was… I realised I needed to make peace with who I saw in the mirror.”
In The Wild is out on August 5th via Hellcat/Epitaph Records and can be pre-ordered here.
