HOPELESS RECORDS ANNOUNCES DYING IN DESIGNER
Hopeless Records has signed Chicago-based singer/rapper dying in designer and shared a new single, â€śDevilâ€™s Callinâ€™.â€ť Fans can watch the music video here: http://smarturl.it/DevilsCallinVideo.
“Devilâ€™s Callinâ€™” is about saying you feel better about moving on from a past relationship, but in reality you don’t. This song means a ton to me and you can actually feel my anger in the first 4 bars of the verse,â€ť dying in designerâ€™s Bobby Oâ€™Brien said. â€śMentally, I was preparing myself to move on and it was the turning point in my relationship. I was lying to myself the whole time until it eventually became true.”
ForÂ dying in designer, 2018 was the hardest year of his life. Fully-consumed by a toxic relationship that led to pain, heartbreak, depression and suicidal thoughts, vocalist Bobby Oâ€™Brien, used every ounce of pain and sorrow to create music that pulled him back into the world. The result is a lyrically gut-wrenching, honest, raw portrait of emotion backed by catchy melodies, cathartic 808s and breakdowns.
About dying in designer:
Hailing from the South Side of Chicago, dying in designerâ€™s early influences came from bands like Blink 182, Taking Back Sunday, and Silverstein. He played in several emo and hardcore bands throughout high school. At the same time, heÂ became engulfed in rap and the Chicago drill scene (Chief Keef, Lil Durk). Throwing down cyphers in the high school cafeteria and writing his own bars, dying in designer cemented his unique style. He began blending pop punk, emo, rap, and trap to create a melodic sound that is all his own.
This unique blend of styles shines in â€śDevilâ€™s Callinâ€™,â€ť the melodic, uplifting single that hits hard with a false bravado. Feeling broken, and anxious, dying in designer uses these feelings of pain, anger, and sadness as fuel toward something therapeutic and cathartic. On the meaning behind the song, dying in designer explains, â€śThe song is about saying you feel better about moving on from a past relationship, when in reality, you really donâ€™t want to move on at all.â€ť Following that theme, â€śGerard Way,â€ť deals with missing someone after they are completely out of your life, wrestling with the good and bad moments, and ultimately admitting that â€śyouâ€™re not okay.â€ť
On â€śLatelyâ€ť – the first track to hit over a million streams, dying in designer laments, â€śThis was my worst fucking year. I could drown in my own tears.â€ť Stripping all pretension and leaving raw vulnerability, he admits to dealing with suicidal thoughts. â€śLately was written like a suicide note. I was in a very toxic relationship, which put me in an extremely dark place,â€ť dying in designer shares. â€śSoÂ I want to help people who feel the way I have felt. I want to be a role model to these broken kids around the world, and I want these kids to know that itâ€™s okay to feel down sometimes. Emotions are real and will always be universal. I want my music to save lives.â€ť
