Fearless Records has signed the band Locket, formerly known as Safe to Say. The band has dropped the brand new track and video for “Out of Sight.” Watch + listen here.
The song explores how we “pursue love and continue relationships, regardless of how difficult distance makes things, or how messy a situation can get,” according to the band. Locket will release their Fearless Records full-length debut, which was recorded at Pebble Studios in Ottawa, an old church in Carleton Place, and various basements over the course of several months, later this year.
Singer/guitarist Brad Garcia explained the band’s change of name and where the members are as a unit in the here and now.
“Two years ago, we decided to walk away from touring or playing shows altogether. As a band, and in my personal life, we weren’t in the healthiest of places. We put things on hold in order to figure out what it was we wanted from this band if it were to continue. Looking back to those first couple months, there was always a chance we’d just put things to bed entirely — especially if the time to ourselves didn’t give us that sense of clarity we were looking for. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case. This break gave us a chance to make adjustments to our personal lives, to rediscover our love for writing and playing together, and, most importantly, to resolidify those relationships as people rather than just bandmates.”
Garcia furthered, “So now, to come back after all this time, with something that feels both familiar yet new, it just makes sense to change our name. And Locket seems fitting. We’re proud of everything we accomplished and were fortunate enough to have experienced as Safe to Say. We can metaphorically wear that pride around our necks moving forward, rather than sweep it under the rug. For the time being, we’ll still play some older songs for those that never got a chance to hear them live. But we’re eager to finally share what’s been kept hush over the last couple of years.”
Locket are touring with Belmont and Bearings in Canada in June. All dates are in the graphic below.
