tHronE: The Fatigue
Story behind "The Fatigue"
“When Casey and I started writing music again after (virtually) 10 years of not playing in the band we grew up in, it was weird.
Weird, but still pretty easy. The songs still came naturally, but there was a certain “restarting” period there - like breaking in a new pair of shoes. That’s kind of how I see our return/self-titled album. I’m so proud of those songs and they were really important, especially at the time. Being as I mixed and produced that record as well when I listen back I can instantly hear all the things I would change. But that comes with anything art related - you always getter better and always feel like you can top your previous efforts (hopefully!).
What I didn’t fully expect after writing that album, is that some floodgates would be opened. Now the songs come at me from every angle - I have hundreds of ideas scattered down in my phone and on paper, and dozens of songs “waiting” to be written.
I love this song as well - it’s very close to me, however, I didn’t think it was a single. And maybe it’s not. But it’s a great entryway into the new album to showcase where Casey and I are going musically and lyrically. So hopefully you’ll like it too.
