Them Evils Unleash Swagger-Filled New Song ‘Got Me Rockin” – Exclusive Song Premiere
Get ready to meet three bad men! SoCal upstarts Them Evils are working toward a new EP release in May and unleashing their brand new single "Got Me Rockin'" exclusively with Loudwire.
Singer-guitarist Jordan Griffin, bassist Jake Massanari, and drummer David Delaney II capture your attention right off the bat with a nasty guitar riff, an undeniable beat and swagger-filled vocals about their shared experiences of being the guys you might want to hide your daughters from.
"'Got Me Rockin’ is a song that came together pretty naturally. After a long year of touring, Jordan was sitting on a lot of riffs and new material to work with, so this particular riff really stuck out to us. We had bounced it around quite a bit once we hit the studio, and the song came together pretty organically," the band tell us.
They add, "Lyrics are usually something we all contribute to together, and something the three of us can really relate to was growing up being the guy that no girl wanted to bring home to their parents. So countless years of sneaking around and living up to that stereotype as a guy in a band is what really inspired the song. We feel like this song best embodies the attitude and style we’ve been looking to achieve, and that’s why it was a no brainer as our first release of the year.”
As stated, the song is the new single from their forthcoming EP. The band worked on the disc with producer Kato Khandwala (The Pretty Reckless, Pop Evil, Drowning Pool, Pierce the Veil), pulling influence from attitude-filled straight-ahead rock and roll. For those interested, the band has launched a PledgeMusic pre-order campaign. As with most PledgeMusic campaigns, there are a variety of incentive-laden bundles ranging from items as small as a download to as much as adding stage-played instruments. You can also get Them Evils jackets and shoes, signed items, vinyl releases or hangout opportunities on tour. Check here for all of the PledgeMusic items.
Them Evils will hit the road in April to build the buzz for their new EP. You can find them playing a run with Red Sun Rising before moving on to their own shows. See all of their scheduled North American dates below and stay up to date with the band via their website.
