The Belgian rock band ROADBOUND is releasing its debut single "Stay". ROADBOUND was formed by members of Evil Invaders (Nico Wilder) and Komah (Nicholas Brynin), taking an entirely new direction in writing and performing at the crossroad where Pop, Rock and Metal meet.
“Stay” is about a turbulent breakup, for which the band has specifically chosen to release the video clip in December, when the grey skies of the northern hemisphere perfectly match the tune's melancholy. It tells how love, a vivid, strong but fragile feeling can lead to situations beyond our control and how they can lead to dramatic consequences. The timeless Shakespearian tragedy that affects many of us at some times in our lives.
The song has an early 90's vibe, which can be recognized by the loud snare and use of keyboards amongst others. A way for the band to wink at the artists who have been an inspiration for them, such as MSG and Alice In Chains. The compression, and other mixing tools used on this project however, delivers a powerful and very modern feel to the track. It reveals the band´s desire to revive a much-missed old school era, tapping in the know-how of the pioneer elderly Rock 'n Roll bands as far as songwriting, and turning it into an updated sound to match the tastes of 2016. ROADBOUND, thus bridges the gaps between Pop, Rock and Metal music.
