Shallow Side - You're The Reason

Hailing from Cullman, AL, Shallow Side, comprised of Eric Boatright, Heath Fields, Sam Bower & Codey Red, are pleased to announce the release of their new single You're The Reason through Thermal Entertainment. 

"The saying goes 'it be your own people'. Self progress should only ever be measured by the previous steps it took to achieve reality. During the writing process of this song I discovered a lot of my self worth was placed in the improper hands, which sold all my previous hard earned steps down the river. I never thought I could stop believing and they were the reason for it the whole time." - Eric Boatright of Shallow Side

You're The Reason is a piece that showcases Shallow Side's darker tones as a band, with as much melody as possible. The song contrasts rhythmically dissonant guitar riffs with a pure and rich melodic chorus.  Lyrically, the song focuses on an individual who has been manipulated by someone to the point where they no longer recognize themselves.

The song was co-written with Chris Dawson and James Beattie and was produced, recorded and mixed by Chris at Aphotic Studios.

The new song has been added to official playlists on major streaming sites, most notable featured song on Pandora's NEW ROCK NOW playlist along with the playlist Cover Artist. Also being added to Pandora's DECIBEL! Today's Hard Rock, NEW ROCK and NEW MUSIC NOW playlists, along with Spotify's ALL NEW METAL playlist as well as Apple Music's BREAKING HARD ROCK and FRESH BLOOD.

You're The Reason is the 2nd single to released from their forthcoming yet untitled album due later this year.

It's the follow up to The Worst Kind released in late 2022 which brought Shallow Side back to the charts at Active Rock Mediabase, peaking at #36 leading the way with 300+ spins at Sirius Octane and Music Choice. The song was on the charts for 8 consecutive weeks.The song can be heard here.

Since coming into the rock scene, Shallow Side has released a little of everything - including several EPs, a full-length album, plus a number of assorted cover songs and singles. 

Their EP ONE purred three radio singles: Rebel, Renegade (a powerful Styx cover) and Can You Hear Me that began to get them noticed and earned them the title of Loudwire's 'Best New Artist of the Year'. In 2019, the band released their first full-length album Saints & Sinners which contained their most streamed-song to date, Sound The Alarm.

Their extensive music catalog has now surpassed more than 40 million streams globally, and their music videos have eclipsed 14.5 million views on their YouTube channel.

Shallow Side - Juke Box Hero

Alabama rockers Shallow Side have released a new cover song and video for the classic Foreigner song Juke Box Hero.

Covid has hindered touring and the band spent some time recording some new material and some of their favorite classic rock songs with the first being Juke Box Hero. Jeff Pilson (Foreigner) when hearing the song said "So great to hear a young band's take on this classic. They added a freshness and moderness to it that really lifts the song into the future. Great work!!!

Back in 2016, the band covered Styx's Renegade which got rave reviews from Tommy Shaw and Eddie Trunk.

The band is still supporting their first full length album Saints & Sinners (produced by rock and metal giant Michael "Elvis" Baskette) and anxiously waiting to hit the road again.

Their overall discography also includes Origins compilation (2018), One ep (2017), Stand Up ep (2014), Home Today ep (2012) as well as several singles.

Shallow Side - Saints & Sinners

Alabama rockers Shallow Side release their new album Saints & Sinners through Thermal Entertainment LLC today, March 29, 2019.

Saints & Sinners is the band's first full album release: after releasing 3 EPs over the past 6 years, and the radio success of Rebel, Renegade (Styx cover) and Can You Hear Me off their 2017's One EP, the time was now.
Saints & Sinners was produced by rock and metal giant Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Incubus, Alter Bridge, Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Slash) and recorded in Orlando, FL at his Barbarosa studio.

The band found the right fit with working with Baskette to really bring out their sound: "Recording with Elvis was an experience all in itself. Growing up, I was listening to records that shaped and molded me individually as an artist and he had his hands in almost every single one of them it seems. It was a journey recording Saints & Sinners and I believe the songs truly capture where we were and express growth in music, as well as experiences." says Heath Fields (drummer).

Matt Daniels (bassist) added, "Artistically, it is an amazing time for us. There were so many ideas that came to light during the writing of Saints & Sinners. We had put all of our creativity and emotions into a pot to discover what makes a Shallow Side record; from the angelic vocals, melodic riffs, and the driving rhythm sections that keep the beat bumping. This is something that accurately represents where we are as a band and our growth together."

Seth Trimble (guitarist) expressed, "I honestly wasn't as excited for my own birth as I am for this album. I've never had a better sense of pride than when we hit that playback button at the end of the day and got to explore this beautiful soundscape that we created together."

All in all, Saints & Sinners is a strong record, full of energetic songs with strong melodies, emotional and powerful vocals, driving rhythms. One you can't miss, if mature modern rock is your credo.
