5. Tigers Jaw have revealed a new song from their upcoming album, spin.
Brianna Collins and Ben Walsh are back with their new single, “June,” which premiered today over at Nylon.
The tune is about friendship, and Collins wrote it about her actual bff Nikki.
“There was a time in our friendship where she was in a relationship that was emotionally abusive,” Collins says, “which was really hard to see her go through. While she was always a strong and independent person, she leaned on myself and our group of friends to help her get through it all. In the moments where she couldn’t see past everything that was happening, I would try to remind her that it wasn’t always going to feel so bad. I wanted to write a song that showed how friendship can make a difference in feeling strong enough to leave relationships that are damaging.”
Check out the new song from Tiger's Jaw below! Their upcoming album spin will be available on May 19 via Black Cement Records.
