SELFISH THINGS are:
Alex Biro | Cam Snooks | Michael Ticar | Jordan Trask
Selfish Things are gearing up for the release of their debut full-length and two incredible North American tours this fall with the launch of a brand new single, “Blood” featuring Andy Leo of Crown The Empire.
On the track, frontman Alex Biro shares “My grandma was dying. She had a white blood cell count of 40,000 which is (if my memory serves me correctly) 10 times what it should be for a normal person. Definitely one of my favorite songs on the album, although birthed from a difficult moment in my life.”
The accompanying music video, directed by Miguel Barbosa, shows a visual representiation of what Biro felt during that time. “Miguel and I work pretty seamlessly together. He gives me space to creative direct all of our videos and really brings my ideas to life alongside Ryan Glover, our cinematographer. Conceptually, I wanted to do something that represented both the madness and desperation of death and illness. I hope that was accomplished.”
While taking their name from Jimmy Eat World’s “23”, with unmatched determination, Selfish Things prove they are neither selfish nor self-serving. Having spent years cultivating and nurturing his raw, natural talent, dedication to musicianship and songwriting, Biro founded Selfish Things. All of this, in the hope of shedding light on one simple, yet often times overlooked, concept — honesty.
Due out September 20th via Pure Noise Records, Selfish Things’ full-length debut, Logos is a collection of 11 tracks that dive right into the psyche of Biro. “I want people to know that there is strength in your faults. It’s just as important to suffer as it is to find moments of joy and happiness. Darkness and light need one another” shares Biro on the upcoming album.
Selfish Things will be supporting Don Broco on their upcoming North American tour. The Canadian four-piece will be delivering their impassioned live performance to fans for a month long run, kicking off September 12th in Boston, MA.
Adding to their non-stop fall, Selfish Things will also be supporting Boston Manor on their first full-length headlining North American Tour, alongside Microwave. This winter tour will kick off in Boston on November 20, traveling to cities across the United States and Canada before wrapping up back on the East Coast in Hartford, CT on December 20.
Selfish Things is: Alex Biro (Vocals/Guitar/Piano), Mike Ticar (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Cam Snooks (Rhythm Guitar) and Jordan Trask (drums).
