Seasons After returns to the radio airwaves with "Weathered And Worn"!!
The history of Seasons After is a journey amongst the mountains of euphoric highs and the valleys of despondent lows. It has been a career of challenges, and inevitably a celebration of optimism and redemption. Formed in Wichita in 2006, Seasons After issued their debut release Through Tomorrow independently in 2008, and then to a broader universe via a label partnership in 2010. The band found early success on the road appearing on the Vans Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos, and Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festivals, sharing the stage and touring with Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Stone Sour, and many others. The album featured a striking cover of Gerard McMann's "Cry Little Sister" (from the soundtrack to 'The Lost Boys') that peaked at #13 on the Active Rock charts. The accompanying video was added in to rotation at MTV, VH1 and Spike-TV. A second single "Gettin' Even" followed, also charting and being amongst the most-requested songs at the format.
The band's fan base has emerged through the simple power of finding that connection through great live performances, standout musicianship, and an honest message delivered through strong lyrics. There is a potency to these songs that is pure and heartfelt. They are passionate and fueled by a soulful honesty. The moments of intensity in "Weathered And Worn" combine with an intimacy that is somewhat unique in defining the overall reflection of what these gentlemen create that is uniquely their own.
"I wrote a song trying to express my absolute confusion with the deeper things in life", says singer Tony Housh. "I imagined dying and becoming conscious in another life. A sort of spiritual realm so to speak. I found myself standing before this great and powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing, and all-loving God. As I stand before this being it addresses me saying, "Tony" which I answer in a trembling voice filled with fear and confusion, "Yes?" The being asks "What do you have to say in defense of your life and your loss of faith in my son?" I reply screaming from the depths of all that I am:
"How could I have seen what my life would be? How could I have known your watching over me? How could I have tried spiritual suicide? How did I end up alone? Weathered and worn."
This song is my plea if and when I reach that courtroom of judgement. This song would be my reply in the event that I stand before a great creator of the universe and discover I was wrong. A reply of great fear and confusion."
