PREMIERE: Times Like These Release Video for "Rosebay"
New York pop-punk outfit Times Like These have released the music video for their single, “Rosebay” today. The track is taken from the band’s recently released EP, Take Me Home, which dropped back in January.
The fun, thematic video for “Rosebay” tells the story of telling off a terrible boss, and perfectly accompanies the high energy, upbeat pop-punk track. With a sound that rides the line between The Wonder Years and The Click Five, Times Like These are the face of pop-punk’s future, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Of the track, the band’s Mike Acampora said, “Rosebay is a song that focuses on when the Honeymoon Phase of love is over and all the bells and whistles fade away and you see the person for why they really are, and sometimes it’s great and sometimes it not so great”
Watch the video now below.
From the suburbs of New York City, Times Like These is today’s freshest take on modern music inspired by pop-punk classics. With songwriting driven by youthful fervor and catchy hooks, Times Like These have three EPs under their belt since their formation in 2015. Their most recent EP, Take Me Home (2019), combines bright guitars with sharp and cheery vocals with lead single “Take Me Home” recorded at Track Happy Studios with All Time Low’s Rian Dawson and Dan Swank, with it’s complimenting music video based on vocalist Mike Acampora getting knocked out on the set, as hilarity ensues.
Their previous 2018 EP Take It Or Leave It features the raw punk energy on “Chicago” and demonstrates an emotive, slow-burning vibe on “Forget-Me-Nots and Marigolds”, with a feature by Drew Dijorio of Stray From the Path. The four-piece, consisting of vocalist Mike Acampora, bassist Zach Dyer, guitarist Eddie Giuffo, and drummer Cody Omage, was born from a local scene dominated by heavier acts. Mike, Eddie, Cody, and Zach discovered success in a pop-focused punk, writing songs founded on bitey hooks and infectious melodies. Their dynamic stage presence took them from their first backyard show in the summer of 2016 to headlining tours along the east coast and supporting acts such as Seaway, In Her Own Words, Story Untold, and Oh, Weatherly. Take Me Home’s second single “Rosebay” is complemented by another thematic official video, releasing early May, which features the band members in office roles with an evil boss.
