Alkaline Trio co-frontman Dan Andriano has a new band, Dan Andriano & The Bygones, which features Get Married's Randy Moore, and their first single is "Sea Level." It's a catchy, anthemic, mid-tempo punk song that sounds like classic Dan Andriano. Here's what he says about it:
I think for me, the song is about self-realization and mental illness, finding your way to where the help is. I recently had my first taste of elevation sickness being higher up in the Rockies than I’d ever been. As we were boarding the flight home I thought aloud to my wife, ‘Just get me back to sea level’. By the time I had found my seat, I was thinking to myself, that’s not a bad metaphor for what I’ve been searching for mentally, which is a better awareness of myself and trying to identify sooner when I’m spinning out or sinking down.
