Australian pop-punk band Trophy Eyes have shared the music video for their newest single “More Like You” off their forthcoming album The American Dream, which will be released on August 3rd via Hopeless Records.
The album — third in the Trophy Eyes collection – is based on the idea that there’s still utopia left on this this planet – a place where one can start again and live a peaceful life, forsaking the trail of destruction that threatened to derail it all. The album also serves as a coming of age fable, in which lead vocalist John Floreani takes an introspective look at who he is today. His story is brought to life in vivid color with string arrangements produced by Chris Craker, who can list the soundtrack to Hans Zimmer’s score of “Interstellar” and Hans Zimmer “The Classics” on his production resume.
“This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here,” Floreani explains. “As much of the other Trophy Eyes works have been the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.” says Floreani.
Trophy Eyes now leads a new wave in rock music, blending their punk and hard-core roots with modern rock and pop sensibilities. Known for their brutally honest and emotional storytelling and lyricism combined with one of the most energetic live shows on the circuit, Trophy Eyes are set to takeover with the drop of The American Dream.
