Carry the Lost, the Halifax hard-rock band is back with a heavy new track and multimedia video with “Pick Your Poison,” the second single off their debut record. Following the release of the single “Battle Tested” back in January 2020, Carry the Lost is back in time for a summer rock banger that will get your blood pumping. “Pick Your Poison” features some of the most dynamic, heavy, and melodic songwriting the band has put to record.
“The song is about going out socializing, partying, letting go, and not letting the negative ever get you down” explains Colin Tye, lead singer and rhythm guitarist. “The ‘pick your poison’ line is about how everybody has their own vice that they use and chase when they go out, whether it is alcohol, drugs, sex, fighting, etc… Yet the message isn’t trying to come out and endorse or condone anything of that nature”
The track has something for everyone; heavy riffs, a catchy sing-able melody, and a breakdown section. The band invited Jessie Brown, Toronto (formerly Halifax) based singer/songwriter, to feature some rich backing vocals on the tune. The accompanying lyric video is action-packed with visuals and multimedia that lives up to the story and energy of the song.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
