PREMIERE: Friday Night Lites’ “Bases Loaded” is peppy popcore for the post-season

It’s October, and you know what that means: It’s post-season baseball time! Teams are inching closer toward that World Series championship, and long-suffering fanbases are getting pumped up with every called third strike and come-from-behind victory. What better soundtrack for your post-season adventures than “Bases Loaded,” the new music video from Maine pop-punk quintet Friday Night Lites? Reminiscent of bands like Four Year Strong and Hit The Lights, the song isn’t some super-complex allegory; in the first line, for example, frontman Joey Genovese sings of waking up on the bleachers, which actually happened. We’ll let him explain further:

“It’s like a literal analogy—finding my way home. I put off working on myself for too long. The fine line between life and death is real. Respect that line. You don’t know if you’ll wake up tomorrow or if you’ll know where you are when you do.”

Friday Night Lites’ Wherever You May Be EP will be released November 20 and can be pre-ordered here.
