Are You Mad? – Heffron Drive Release New Single (Review)

After months of teasing fans, Heffron Drive officially shared their latest single “Mad at the World” on Friday, January 19, 2018.

The band appears to have moved away from their original electronic EDM sound, and have gotten heavy into guitars and drums, giving their music a more rock/alternative sound. This is evident just twelve seconds into the song when you hear the beat of drums take over. From there, it’s all high energy. This song is no ballad!

Dustin’s guitar solo is seamless. Each new song showcases his skills and blows us away with his brilliance, while Kendall shocked a lot of fans with a scream worthy of any Taking Back Sunday song. It’s clear they are really feeling this new sound they’re producing and we dig it.

The boys have harnessed their lyrical storytelling and kept it simple. It`s not about finding love or surviving a break-up. It’s purely what the title says: being mad at the world. We have all experienced this at one point or another, even more so with the current state of events. The lyrics tell a tale of one person’s struggle to try and deal with situations that may bring you down in day to day life. Questioning if there is something better out there, if anyone even cares, and how sometimes you just want to move away and start over.

“Mad at the World” is available through all major digital retailers and streaming services.

Heffron Drive Announce New Single and First Show of 2018

On Thursday January 18th, Heffron Drive will perform their first show of 2018. The concert will take place at the NITELIGHT night club on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door. Per the band, it will be a very intimate performance. Space is limited so get there early. Doors open at 7:30 pm.

The concert isn’t the only excitement this week! The band will be releasing their next single “Mad at the World” on Friday the 19th. Latin America fans got a sneak peek of the song while the band toured last fall.

The music video will break new ground for the band, as it is more like ten minute short film. It was filmed during a cross country road trip that spanned four days and over 22,000 miles. No official release date for the music video has been announced at this time.
