Hailing from just outside Los Angeles, pop-punk quartet Seasons Change definitely have a bit of that west coast vibe musically—it’s clear that more technical acts like Rufio and Strung Out inspired their speedier parts—but the band draw just as much from classic east coast pop-punk acts like the Starting Line and Taking Back Sunday when it comes to the sheer emotion and passion in their lyrics and vocals. That’s why we’re thrilled to be premiering the lyric video for “Hope This Stains,” taken from Seasons Change’s debut full-length, the Sam Pura-produced Please Don’t Leave, out April 7 on No Sleep Records (pre-order). Vocalist Anthony Robles explains:
“Musically, ‘Hope This Stains’ is one of our favorite songs to play as a band.It was the first time that Josh (Orellana) and I were able to collaborate on a Seasons Change song together to make something completely different from previous songs and in a whole new direction. The aggressive and melodic backing track is perfect for the story I was trying to tell about wanting someone to see me, to understand how I was feeling. People would joke to me about writing a song about loving your friends because we’re a pop-punk band, but I’ve always hated that. When you have best friends that are a major part of your life for years, it’s hard not to bump heads or have problems, and this song is about letting the people I care about know that no matter what I’ve said or done, I need them in my life.”
