San Francisco-based band Worth Taking have taken two genres--pop and punk--and created an attention-grabbing combination with an important message.
“Different Now,” their latest single, is intended to reflect a step in the 12 Step Program, the recovery process that addicts embark on while in rehabilitation.
"Different Now" is the sixth step in the 12 Step Program. It's the halfway point and is really about reflection. We are often so focused on the future, we forget to look at just how far we've come,” Jerod, Chris, and Chase explained about the track.
The song is expressive, each instrument standing out fiercely around Jerod’s vocals. It appears on Hangman, the band’s second LP, which is due in early 2016. The album has a running theme, already mentioned above; each song on it represents a different step in the program as it transitions from darkness to hope.
“While exploring varied rhythms and sonic textures, the new LP is our most cohesive work yet. Not content to be just a collection of songs, the new record is meant to be experienced as a whole; the ups and downs give context for each other. Though not entirely autobiographical, it is also the most personal story we have ever told,” the band said.
