Australian pop punk duo 3REE have released their new single, “Set This Place On Fire“, featuring guest vocals from Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn. The high energy track tackles the increasing strains on identity, belonging and on longevity of life on the planet in 2022. Listen to it now below.
“We’re living our childhood dream!”, 3REE say about their collaboration with Kellin. “It was amazing to collaborate with such an idol of ours.”
3REE drummer Sean Tighe reflected on the collaboration, “When we were writing the song, we could hear Kellin’s voice as a perfect fit with Mitch’s. I simply messaged Kellin the song and asked if he’d be interested and how wonderful it would be. Kellin’s response was fantastic, saying “WOW! This song is a banger” and “I can track my vocals by the end of the week”. We had to pinch ourselves.”
Of the meaning of the song, vocalist and guitarist Mitch Volcan said, “We built the song around the lyric ‘When the fire burns out we all come alive’; writing with the aim of connecting with the listener with the sense of rawness, energy and togetherness that you face during dark times.”
3REE have also caught the eye of Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz and former Panic! At The Disco drummer Spencer Smith. The attention came via a mashup of the band’s tracks 3REE posted on their Instagram, which impressed Pete and Spencer so much it prompted them to reach out to 3REE. A relationship sparked and Pete and Spencer both now also help mentor the Aussie pop punks.
Attracting the attention of rock royalty that most bands can only dream of attaining, 3REE are poised for success with ‘Set This Place On Fire’ as they make a huge statement on what to expect from the band in 2022.
