Richmond, Virginia’s Telltale has only been around since early-2017, but they’ve been working hard to make an immediate impact on their local scene.
Soon after their formation, they dropped their first single, “Atlas” and began playing all across their region. Soon thereafter, their debut EP, Good Intentions, came and continued to expand their reach, drawing the attention of SharpTone Records.
SharpTone was impressed to the point of signing Telltale, and with that support behind them, the band is ready to start the next chapter: starting with a new EP, Timeless Youth, due out on April 26th. Speaking on their signing to SharpTone, Telltale guitarist Bryce Marshall shares with Substream, “Since we’re releasing an album that’s about growing up, it’s humbling to be on a label with so many bands that we grew up listening to. When we started talking to SharpTone, the first question someone asked was, ‘Isn’t this the same label We Came As Romans is signed to?’ We were floored to be asked to join such an incredible family. That’s really what SharpTone is and has become to us.”
To celebrate the announcement of the signing and their new EP, we are excited to be premiering the first single, the title-track “Timeless Youth.” Providing some background on the single and the message behind it, vocalist John Carter tells us, “‘Timeless Youth,’ at its most basic level, is about growing up. The ugly truth is that ‘adulthood’ is a state of mind, a state of complacency if you will. Growing into your late teens and early twenties, you lose a lot of friends in more ways than one. You take blame for mistakes that aren’t yours and you forget what it’s like to know the freedom of naivety. ‘Timeless Youth’ is about retaining a sense of wanderlust, even when you feel confined to a certain path.”
