Other Lives have released a new song which is a very personal one.
Their new single "We Wait" arrived today, described as the intimate song frontman Jesse Tabish has ever written. It pays homage to his close friend Tommy, who was murdered by a hitman his wife hired. According to Tabish, Tommy was "the older brother I never had." His death occurred while he was still part of The All-American Rejects.
"This event completely devastated and shattered my reality. I quit the Rejects and was very lost," says Tabish. "I soon found the piano and started moving towards a deeper place inside, artistically, which has shaped me to this day. For many years, I had avoided this trauma and couldn’t touch the subject. I pushed it out, only for it to haunt me more recently."
Tabish says writing the song was "a way for me to heal and remember my old pal." The track is from Other Lives' upcoming album For Their Love, which is out April 24 via ATO Records.
