Los Angeles duo Teenage Wrist - Marshall Gallagher (guitar, vocals), and Anthony Salazar (drums) - have released 'Yellowbelly,' the new single from their forthcoming second album 'Earth Is A Black Hole', out on February 12 via Epitaph.
'Yellowbelly' represents the core of the album, says Gallagher. “It came out early in the writing process and really informed the rest of the record. It's partly about death, or the inevitability of it being a motivator for reveling in life. It's about not letting fear, doubt or ego stop you from making connections, because the opportunity could end at any moment.
"I've personally spent a lot of time being pessimistic and isolated and whatnot, but I decided I'd rather test the limits of my love and free will. That's going to be a lifelong endeavour I think, and will take some time to learn but it's better than dying, knowing I didn't try as hard as I could.”
