Punk act Bayside are unleashing one of the band’s heaviest songs to date. Fans can listen to the sharp and searing “Prayers,” streaming now, here: smarturl.it/baysideprayers.
“We wanted a riff that acted as a musical theme to the song and once we wrote the ‘Prayers’ riff, it sort of told a story on its own,” lead singerAnthony Raneri shares. “The drama and heaviness in that opening riff alone easily set the tone for the rest of the song.”
Bayside represent a lifestyle, a counterculture, and a deeply held conviction, diverse in thought and background but united by a shared desire for authentic expression. It’s a spirit that permeates an impressive and storied discography, including Sirens and Condolences (2004), Bayside (2005), The Walking Wounded (2007, celebrated with a 10 Year Anniversary tour in 2017), Shudder (2008), Killing Time (2011), Cult (one of Kerrang!’s Top Albums of 2014), and Vacancy (2016).
