Florida rock band Magnolia Park are kicking off a new era with their new single and music video, “Homicide”. Arriving just on the heels of their extended debut album, Baku’s Revenge Deluxe the track stresses the importance of community and giving back to those who support you. Expanding on the harder edge of recent single “Do Or Die” via massive arena-rock sonics, the song finds the band encouraging listeners to “check in on the people you love, make sure they are okay and let them know they are not alone.”
Conveying that message through lyrics like, “You can carry your throne, but you never have to be all alone,” the band is constantly proving to elevate the voice of outcasts and underdogs everywhere. Watch the accompanying music video now below.
Since forming in Orlando, Florida in 2019, the five-piece act have released an EP, a mixtape, and their highly anticipated debut album, ‘Baku’s Revenge’ (2022), with the latter climbing to over 18.5 Million streams to date. After touring with everyone from Sum 41 to Simple Plan, the band recently wrapped a headlining tour of the US, bringing their explosive full-length to the masses.
Though at times lighthearted, Magnolia Park are also serious about spreading a message of inclusivity. Since their inception, they’ve been on a mission to inspire kids who look like them to start bands as a form of creative expression. “Our goal when we’re together is to make sure the next generation doesn’t have to face as much racial backlash for being a rock band,” guitarist Tristan Torres explains. “In the industry, people look at us a certain way and try to impose things on us—and we want to make sure the next generation of rock bands don’t have to go through what we’ve been through.”
With an impressive Spotify monthly listener count reaching over 1.2 Million, 45 Million views on their viral Tik-Tok page and over 675K followers, Magnolia Park’s unique brand of upbeat pop-punk has been celebrated by outlets like Kerrang, Alternative Press, Ones To Watch, Afropunk, MTV News, and BrooklynVegan, hailed by the latter as “one of the best bands bringing the mainstream pop-punk revival sound back right now.”
