Palisades have released their latest single “Better” and the accompanying music video today via Rise Records. The band also announced their forthcoming album Reaching Hypercritical, out on Friday, July 22, their latest LP since 2018’s Erase The Pain.
“Better” speaks to themes of mental health, including rontman Brandon Elgar’s experiences with agoraphobia, chronic anxiety, depression, and dissociative disorders. Speaking on today’s release, Brandon shared, “What I want people to get out of this song is, I want them to feel safe listening to it… especially if you suffer from these things. At the end of the day, it’s all that I want to feel, is better. And I think that’s why that became such a stamp in this song because I think that’s what everybody wants to feel… Awareness is important, being kind to people is important. So I hope you get satisfaction out of this song like it has done for me.”
