If Not For Me Share Vibrant New Track
Harrisburg, PA — If Not For Me are sharing their sleek new single "No Thanks To You" on March 1. The track can be found on the band's forthcoming record, Everything You Wanted due out March 29 via Thriller Records. "No Thanks To You" follows swiftly behind the release of title track, "Everything You Wanted" and is in good company with singles "Alone," "Blameless," "Feel Me Now" and "Demons."
If Not For Me continues to expand their musical capability with "No Thanks To You." Creating a spacious atmosphere in the track's intro and erupting into a catchy ear-worm of a chorus. The band weaves heavy melodies draped in brutal screams, making for a perfect contrast. Lyrics are doused in relatability as INFM makes a unique connection to their fan-base and new listeners alike.
“No Thanks To You is all about moving on from somebody that’s been manipulating or using you. It’s another very personal song to me because I know exactly how hollowing it can feel to realize something you invested so much of yourself into wasn’t even real. But there’s something so freeing and empowering in being able to recognize your worth and move forward. These wounds are bound to open from time to time, but progress isn’t a linear thing, and healing takes time.” - Patty Glover, lead vocalist.
"I wrote most of this record from a place of grief, hindsight, and healing from the past several years of my life. Most of my life has been spent in a state of not really wanting to be around anymore, but not necessarily knowing why that is. Back in 2019, I decided to end a very long term relationship because I felt like I needed to make some changes for myself to figure out why I was so unhappy. In the process I made a lot of awful choices and hurt people that were very important to me just trying to make myself happy, because I didn’t know why I was hurting or what I wanted or who I even was. And I spent the next several years in a downward spiral getting progressively worse and ended up in the most toxic, on and off relationship I've ever experienced. I made so many mistakes and ruined so many things for myself and others, and allowed myself to be used and manipulated in ways I still don't even know the extent of. I did so many things I'm not proud of and had to learn a lot about who I was and who I didn't want to be. Most of the songs I wrote for this album came directly from those experiences, and are an outlet to hopefully help put that chapter of my life behind me. A lot of them are extremely personal to me and come from places of anger, sadness, and confusion. And it's been really vindicating hearing some of the feedback we've gotten from fans because it seems like the themes I'm touching on are really coming through and resonating with people. I want our listeners to hear these songs and understand that it’s okay to feel angry, or sad, or guilty about the things we can’t change, whether or not we’re the ones to blame. These feeling are all integral to the healing process, and feeling something at all means that we actually care and want to accept change. All we can do is choose who we want to be going forward." Says Glover regarding the new record.
“The title, “Everything You Wanted” has a couple intended meanings for me personally. It comes from a place of longing to find out who you really are outside of other people and understanding what you actually want out of life, which has been a major climb for myself to face over the years and a journey that will most likely never truly end. But it also serves as a bit of a sarcastic jab to ourselves and others who have wronged us in ways that feel irreparable. I just really wanted to convey that harsh but fair attitude of “These are the choices you’ve made, I hope it was everything you wanted,” which is something I’ve had to say to myself and others so may times. But I’m extremely excited for everyone to hear this record and see their interpretations of everything, and if there’s anyone at all out there who actually gets something meaningful out of these words and experiences, that makes it all worth it.
