Today Neil Star from Attack! Attack! UK tells us about "No Excuses" from their brand new album "The Latest Fashion," which hits stores today! Here is the story:
This was one of the first tracks we wrote for the new album. I had come up with the music for the verse and chorus sitting at home on my acoustic guitar.
I took the song as it was to band practice to play as a band and it instantly started to sound HUGE. There was a great vibe coming from the song when we were all jamming it. We wanted to keep the structure really simple and just make it as kick ass and rocking as possible, basically a two minute punch to the face!
The melody came to me whilst we were jamming and later that day I went home and wrote the lyrics. The lyrics are basically about a person I know who loves to spread sh*t about people behind their backs and then face to face becomes all friendly and has nothing bad to say. I used to been good friends with this person but had to stop hanging out with them because I couldn't stand them being so two faced.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen to the entire new album right here!
