If Not For Me Sign To Thriller Records, Announce Forthcoming Album Everything You Wanted, Shares Title Track
Harrisburg, PA — If Not For Me have joined the Thriller Records family and have announced the release of their forthcoming album, Everything You Wanted due out March 29 via Thriller Records. Alongside this news come the release of the title track, "Everything You Wanted" out February 2. This single is a follow-up to their well-received tracks, "Alone," "Blameless," "Feel Me Now" and "Demons."
“We can’t tell you how stoked we are to be joining the Thriller family. Bob Becker and Nick Moore have both launched a lot of bands that were extremely integral in shaping our personal music tastes and who we are as musicians, and it’s honestly so surreal to be able to work with them further. Our team is absolutely incredible, and we’ve been able to tell since day one how much they actually believe in us. It’s so sick to be joining such a stacked roster of artists that we’re genuine fans of and look up to. We’re extremely grateful for InVogue for pushing and pushing us to get where we need to be, and we’re proud to take this next step with Thriller Records.” Says the band about signing to Thriller Records.
If Not For Me showcases raw power, raw energy and raw emotion that is blended into a tightly wound powder keg and ready to explode with "Everything You Wanted." The band strings together a powerful chorus with an addictively catchy melody, which allows the listener to scream it over and over, as they search for the same peace and closure that vocalist Patty Glover is calling for. The track presents concise transitions while highlighting an addictive atmosphere. This single is sure to evolve If Not For Me's ever-growing fanbase.
“I wrote "Everything You Wanted" for anyone who’s ever felt like they’ve been used, manipulated, or betrayed in their interpersonal relationships. The song highlights the frustration and confusion of being strung along for somebody else’s gain, but also the relief of being set free when all the lies finally come crashing down. I absolutely love the subtle sarcastic tone of the title and attitude it implies. I just wanted the listener to be able to relate to that vindicating weight being lifted when you can see that you’ve been right all along and can finally begin to move on.” - 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.
Pre-orders for the album and exclusive merchandise is now available.
