It’s an exciting time for hard rock band If Not For Me, as they not only announce their signing to renowned alternative/rock label InVogue Records, but also release a brand new single, “Demons”. Lyrically introspective with loud, compelling instrumentals, “Demons” proves If Not For Me is a powerful force within the alternative rock music scene.
Hailing from Harrisburg, PA, the four-piece metalcore band consists of vocalist Patrick Glover, guitarists Zac Allen and Hayden Calhoun, and drummer Cody Frain. With their latest album, Eulogy, charting at #53 on Current Hard Rock Albums and having already garnered a dedicated following through their riveting sound and emotionally charged performances, signing with InVogue Records seems like the natural next step for the hard rock powerhouse.
“We are insanely stoked for this new saga of our journey as a band and are absolutely honored to be part of the InVogue Records family,” the band shared. “Several artists on this label have really shaped who we have become as musicians. We can’t wait to contribute to the roster and keep that legacy going with our first new single “Demons”.”
With “Demons,” pensive lyrics are combined with intense, distorted guitars and fierce drums to capture the thoughts and emotions behind feeling helpless to one’s self-destructive tendencies. As Glover switches between emotional crooning and fervent screaming, Allen, Calhoun, and Frain use energetic yet moving instrumentals to brilliantly showcase the emotions behind the words. If Not For Me’s sonic intensity and use of raw, honest lyrics on “Demons” perfectly encapsulates the hopelessness of being trapped in the darkest parts of one’s mind. By the end of the track, any listeners struggling with these same feelings will be left comforted, knowing they’re not alone in it.
The release of “Demons” and their signing to InVogue Records more than proves that If Not For Me is a force to be reckoned with. “Demons” is a powerful and emotive track, highlighting the band’s depth and artistry. And with InVogue Records behind them now to help the band’s artistic vision truly flourish, If Not For Me is officially unstoppable.
