Dante & Drew of L.A.-based THEY. unexpectedly put out "Say When" today, along with a impassioned Facebook status preaching an pro-active approach to both current political issues as well as the promotion of their own music.
"4 days before we left for tour, drew and i met up in hollywood at the studio and recorded one of our favorite songs to date. a lot of niggas have made songs about what the police/judicial system have done to my people but as we all know nothing changes. at all. we can discuss/bring awareness to shit all day, but at the end of the day life is about actions you take. I'm sorry, i'm more malcolm than martin. we have spent this year crafting what i know to be the strongest project of 2016, so today i'm saying fuck a “release plan” and I'm putting shit into my own hands. I'm tired of discussing songs, tired of watching the news as more people get gunned down, tired of a nigga parading around, peddling t shirts with our names crossed out like we don't exist. its time to shift the conversation. “say when” is on the soundcloud now, today is the day we kick off HYENA season."
With the bold statement that they're "more Malcolm than Martin," THEY. commences "HYENA season" with the the first release since their wildly successful debut with the Nu Religion EP. As expected, "Say When" exudes a bit more aggression than previous releases, but it still retains that signature THEY. sound that we've grown to love.
