They’re back – They’re amazing – They’re bursting through the music industry’s B.S.
— Renee Phoenix
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, July 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The “secret” is out. Nashville band Fit For Rivals announced the release of their explosive new single “Secret,” out July 22 through Freak Machine Records. Penned by lead vocalist Renee Phoenix and bandmate Thomas Amason, the new single is the latest in a series of releases slated through December 2022.
“Secret,” beginning with a battle banging of the snare and driving electric guitar, reveals the “man behind the curtain” of the music industry. With her signature gravelly growl, Phoenix offers a warning in the chorus: “I know your secret / No I won’t keep it.” The biting guitar before the chorus wails in warning. Fit For Rivals has all of the bite to back their bark as they call out the music industry’s two-faced facade.
“Sick as a dog
Bone of contention
A sharp tongue
With bad intentions
Don’t you see you’re all the same?
Living off somebody’s name
In Jesus name you better pray”
“The song is about knowing too much about what’s behind the curtain in the music industry. Kind of like The Wizard of Oz. It’s ambiguous enough that you can relate this to other parts of your life though, not just exclusively to my experience. Those are the kind of lyrics that I love to write,” says Phoenix.
Set for world domination, Fit For Rivals announced they will be releasing new music with heavily anticipated collaborations through the end of the year.
“Secret” is available for PRE-SAVE HERE.
