Set It Off album ‘Midnight’ breaks 1 million streams in 48 hours
If you're like me, you've had the new Set It Off album Midnight on repeat since it dropped on February 1. Considered one of the most anticipated albums of 2019, the band certainly did NOT disappoint. It looks like fans agree, pushing the band's debut album on Fearless Records past an impressive 1 million streams in just two days.
After announcing their signing to Fearless Records back in July, Set It Off fans were left eagerly awaiting the next era for the pop-rock four piece.
Midnight dug deep into the roots of SIO, bringing back that aggression that OG fans will remember from earlier releases. The album doesn't feed you any sugarcoated lyrics, instead opting to get real and talk about the hard stuff that we all go through.
“We’re really excited about it because this whole process of the new music [has] been a lot about going back to our roots and digging deep into what we’ve been going through over these past couple years,” Frontman Cody Carson tells AP. “We’ve brought a lot of aggression back because we have a lot to talk about. I feel like it’s so easy, in general, when you’re [asked], ‘How have you been?’ to say ‘Oh, everything’s perfect, everything’s great.’ I feel like nobody talks about the real side of things and what we go through in any sort of course of your life whether it be music, your job, relationships—anything at all—to just speak openly, and to say openly, to write openly."
The album shows the tremendous growth and positive changes that SIO have endured since the release of Upside Down. Their ability to be relatable, open, and honest has really built a connection with their fans that is unparalleled to most bands.
A connection that has pulled their fans together and pushed the album past 1 million streams, all in 48 hours.
We're so proud of Set It Off!
