Pop-punk Trophy Eyes has once again created the ultimate jam, “You Can Count On Me” from their upcoming record The American Dream out August 3rd. The American Dream is based on the possibility of a utopian society still possibly existing.
Frontman John Floriani explains: “In many ways, ‘You Can Count on Me’ is a push back – a voice for those who choose not to defend themselves against the growing torch and pitchfork mentality that encircles performers in the era of modern music. Artists used to be a respected breed. With the uprising of social media, it’s as if listeners think they know us. They follow our every move and make judgments on our character based on a photo they may have seen, or a statement someone may have made.”“This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here,” Floriani explains. “As much of the other Trophy Eyes works have been the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.”
