Ohio quartet The Plot In You — Landon Tewers [vocals], Josh Childress [guitar], Ethan Yoder [bass], and Michael Cooper [drums — will release their fifth album ‘Swan Song’ on September 17 via Fearless Records. Pre-order the album, which follows 2018’s excellent Dispose, here. The band have also shared the video for their brand new single ‘Face Me.’
“‘Face Me’ was the first song written for Swan Song in early 2019,” Tewers shares, offering some insight into the song. “It explores the intricacies of a relationship where one person is severely mentally distraught. The damage is so deep but there’s an unspeakable element that keeps them laced together. It’s about wanting to pull away just as strongly as they want it to be perfect.”
After racking up over 100 million streams and receiving praise from Billboard, Rock Sound, Alternative Press, and more, The Plot In You have crafted an album that addresses the end of various things and situations in life. It was a way for the members to expunge some negative things from their lives through their art. With this record, the band stared down years of negativity, soured friendships, disappointment, and mistakes and catalyzed those experiences into hammering distortion, towering melodies, epic production, and unapologetically cathartic lyrics. It’s an album that their fans and beyond will intimately and instantly relate to.
“The album is about the end of things, the end of friendships, the end of relationships, and the end of people’s lives,” Tewers explains. “There’s not a whole lot of hope. On the other side of it, my life is in a way more positive place now. I said, ‘Alright, this is all of the bullshit I can conjure up in my life. Goodbye.’ It was therapeutic to dispense all of these painful things from the past and wash out the negativity.”
The Plot In You will return to the road in North America with Silverstein and Can’t Swim this autumn.
