Today, Rebuilder has released a brand new single entitled “Another Round.” The pop-punk belter follows the May release of “Hold On” and together these two songs perfectly showcase the unique songwriting voices that have come to define Rebuilder. While “Hold On” was the domain of Sal Ellington, “Another Round” finds Craig Stanton stepping up to deliver a reflection on choice and consequences on the road to what is and what could’ve been.
Stanton had the following to say about the release:
“Sometimes these forks in the road are big and obvious at the time. In my case I dropped out of college, which of course changed what city I was living in, the job I had, the career path I was on, my friend group etc. That’s what the lyric ‘I’ve considered the distance, and how things would be different, if I hung around, stuck it out, beared down and tried hard to fix them…’ references. In other cases the decisions are small and seem meaningless. They go by mostly unnoticed at the time, but can have an outsized impact on your life.
Things don’t always work out, but sometimes you get lucky. Our paths get altered by all sorts of stuff along the way, and this song is about looking back at the random events in life that got you to where you are.”
The band has also announced that the single will be featured on their upcoming album, Local Support, which will be released on August 11th via A-F Records.
Ellington added the following about the new album:
“This record is so appropriately named Local Support because we had so many people jump in to give suggestions or help in any way they can. Pete Wasilewski from Less Than Jake and Chris Rhodes of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones played horns on “Disco Loadout,” Spacey Casey Prestwood from Hot Rod Circuit played the pedal steel, and Kailynn West from Tiny Stills sang on “Wedding Day.” Pat Hanlin, who had previously played keys in the band, recorded all the synth and piano as well. Jay Maas put a lot of time recording this record and I think only he could have captured it the way it needed to be.”
