Singled Out: Burn Halo's Tear It Down

Today Burn Halo frontman James Hart tells us about "Tear It Down" from their brand new album "Up from the Ashes," which hit stores today. Here is the story:

"Tear It Down" was one of the last songs that was brought to the table when we were finishing writing the album. Aaron had been working on it in Tulsa, OK with Brandon and Dillon. On the first day of our pre-production sessions they played the song for Roxx and me and we were immediately blown away. I knew this had the impact, energy and aggression we were looking for in a first track on the album.

The intro to the song had been around for quite a while. It was a piece that Brandon had for a song he'd written that just wasn't as far along as the other songs. We scrapped the song along with quite a few more, but I was in love with the intro bit. We had talked about trying to work it into a song and onto the album and it just so happened to work with "Tear It Down". I feel it gives the drama and anticipation you look for when kicking off an album.

Lyrically, the song is about breaking free from the expectations and standards that can hold a person back from becoming their true selves and reaching their full potential. We waste too much precious time trying to work our way up the social or industrial ladder that we lose sight of who we really are.

Joey Roxx's guitar work on the song is exceptional and really took it the next level. Between Roxx and Brandon Lynn, we were able to get some beast ass guitar tones on this album and this track showcases just about every tone you will find from start to finish.

We wanted to make a more dynamic album and "Tear It Down" is just a glimpse.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
