Pop-punkers Reckless Serenade releases first single off new EP

Mohopac, New York, pop-punk band Reckless Serenade released their first single, “Kerosene,” off of their EP Out Here, set to be available on September 18. You can listen to “Kerosene” below:

“Kerosene is a song that really sums up a sentiment held by the younger generationals,” Cory Brent, vocalist for Reckless Serenade, explains in a press release. “It’s about finding your own voice and trying to grow up in a world where you’re always told what to do.”

Brent expands on the lyrics, “I’m fine, just tired of questions/so sick of the life suggestions/stop asking what my post-grad plans are/the thought, it freaks me out.”

“This is a line that could resonate with a lot of kids. It’s that deep seeded fear of the future, all while being force-fed contradicting advice at every turn,” says Brent. “Being young isn’t supposed to be stressful – I think that’s the biggest point we’re trying to make with this song. You’re still young – enjoy it while you can.” That yearning to be alive can be found in the band’s full-tilt live show and through the energy blaring from the mix of their songs.
