On “Heaven Bound,” the band avoids presenting themselves as the hero, but instead allows “desperation” to be expressed across the track.
The band’s Ben Roter says:
‘Heaven Bound’ is about a period of nihilism, isolation, and addiction. Specifically using addiction to cope. It’s about feeling detached from the world and searching for meaning. In the end, it’s an anthem of acceptance – and realizing that we all have a beautiful, inevitable fate. We’re all truly ‘Heaven sent, heaven bound.’
“Heaven Bound” follows the release of other album tracks “What I Wanted,” “Hollywood Baby” and “Do Or Die.” Arriving in early 2024, the band describes the new album as them at their most authentic by saying, “In a way, it’s our statement piece. It’s who we are.”
Throughout this last year, Quarters of Change has been playing across the country, with highlights including their SXSW debut, sold out shows, and a festival performance at Austin City Limits. They will close out the year with a hometown show at New York’s Webster Hall on December 9th, 2023.
