Listen to For You Forever and Dancing With the Devil now.
Set It Off have shared two new songs from their forthcoming Fearless Records debut Midnight, out 1 February 2019. The band had dropped the two new songs at the same time for a very specific reason. Set It Off were seeking fan input and assistance in deciding which track should get a proper music video. The band will announce which song fans voted for on New Year’s Day.
To help with the decision-making process, singer Cody Carson offered insight into both songs.
“Dancing With the Devil is a story of betrayal,” he said. “It unfortunately happens more often than it should that I someone we work with or someone we get close to in our lives feeds us lines of support and love, reels us in with a false sense of connection, and then whenever they feel like we can’t feed their needs, they cut the line and watch us drown. To me, that severance is fuel. That betrayal and abandonment is a reason to prove something, and the chip on the shoulder grows. This world is a tough place, but we have to be tougher and keep our eyes open so we don’t end up Dancing With the Devil.”
About For You Forever, Carson said, “[It’s] is my way of putting myself in the shoes of someone else when I was single. I was stubborn, I didn’t want a serious relationship, and I’d always let the other person know that. However, sometimes feelings grew, and I pushed them away because I felt I wasn’t ready, but it wouldn’t always stop them from waiting for me. This song collects the multitude of emotions that circulated through those situations from start, to end, to even how their friends may have advised them. It was a seriously humbling and vulnerable song to write, but sometimes you have to call yourself out.”
