Alternative pop-rock quintet If Walls Could Talk aim to create an experience for their fans through their theatrical sound and engaging live performances. In 2016 the band released their debut EP, What Would They Say?, which features tracks that are structured like a classical aria while others blend elements of rock, rap, and pop. Earlier this week, If Walls Could Talk announced a re-release of the EP, titled What Would They Say? Deluxe Edition, which is set for release on June 8th, 2018 and includes new tracks as well as three revisioned acoustic tracks. With the announcement, the band partnered with Pure Grain Audio to premiere the music video for their newest single, “Static.” The track captures some of the band’s most raw emotions, showcasing the frustration felt by someone who put their whole heart into another only to be betrayed. Vocalist Anthony Berkseth explains further:
“Anger, aggression, mistrust. These are the words that explain the intense emotions behind “Static.” The song is about getting frustrated to the point where you blow and need to leave. The back and forth between the two vocal parts represent the two sides of an argument, and the rap represents that breaking point where enough is enough.” – Anthony Berkseth, vocals
If Walls Could Talk is an alternative pop rock group from Detroit, MI, comprised of Anthony Berkseth (Vocals), Nick DiStefano (Guitar), Steven Fronrath (Keys), Zack Spoutz (Drums), and Anthony White (Bass). With a theatrical sound and live performance inspired by acts including Coldplay, Panic! At The Disco, and Imagine Dragons, If Walls Could Talk aim to create an experience for their fans. The band’s name stems from the idea that in a sense they relate to metaphorical walls, not because of what they do, but because of what they cannot do: speak. We have voices, but through music the band is able to do so by telling stories in ways that are meaningful enough to convey how they feel.
Since the band’s formation, If Walls Could Talk have worked on creating a sound that is all their own. In 2016 the band released their debut EP, What Would They Say?, which features tracks that are structured like a classical aria while others blend elements of rock, rap, and pop. With their energetic and interactive live performances, the band has a talent for connecting with fans and have shared the stage with artists including Joyce Manor, Foxing, Basement, Norma Jean, and Andrea Gibson. Now If Walls Could Talk has returned with What Would They Say? Deluxe Edition, set for release on June 8th, 2018, that includes new tracks as well as three revisioned acoustic tracks. Vocalist Anthony Berkseth shares, “When we recorded the original album, it was our best work we had in us at the time. Now we’ve only built upon that, and we’re so happy with what was created.”
