At the beginning of the year, the band released a new single entitled “North Hansen,” which received praise from fans and press alike, including a feature in Alternative Press’ 10 Best Songs of the Week.
“‘North Hansen’ was a tough one for me, it meant opening up about things I don’t usually talk about. We’ve all dealt with or are going to deal with loss in our lives, I wanted to write something that reflected the low’s during that time but also the eventual realization that things will be okay.” – Doug Cousins (Bearings).
