Alaskan-raised and Nashville-based rock outfit Static Cycle have unveiled a brand new single, “Bread & Circus”. The anthemic track showcases the band’s pop influences through their modern rock twist while sharing a very important message.
“A Roman poet coined the phrase ‘bread and circuses’ to represent political powers using food and games to divert the people’s attention,” shares vocalist Jared Navarre on the timely track. “Our version is an introspective look at how we give those around us a facade of reality to prevent them from truly knowing us.”
“Bread & Circus” is the band’s first track that takes a sonic departure from hard rock. “We wanted the record to be more eclectic than a standard hard rock album so we worked with a variety of producers that have crafted songs across genres,” Navarre continues. To make this shift, Static Cycle enlisted the help of producer John Fields (Jonas Brothers, Switchfoot, Pink, Har Mar Superstar, Miley Cyrus, Drake Bell, Andrew W.K., Busted and Demi Lovato).
