No Bragging Rights will release their new self-titled EP through Pure Noise Records on December 03rd. The first single from the effort is called “Breaking Point” and can be found below.
Mike Perez, the band’s vocalist offered the following on the new singel:
“Intimate Partner Violence is what is portrayed in the lyrics but the song could have just as easily been a job, a career, a family crisis, or an existential crisis. We have people, things, or situations in our lives that make us feel powerless or dependent. The fear of failure or embarrassment can keep us feeling trapped and helpless. Even when we are knocked to our knees, we do not have to stay there. We can leave an abusive relationship. We can find fulfilling work. We can work to improve whatever difficult situation we find ourselves in.”
Regarding his lyrics, and his career as a social worker since the band’s hiatus in 2014, he offered:
“I’m still writing for myself so I can connect, but I do have others in mind as well. I feel like I try to ask questions – not just for myself but questions that other people may have. If I have answers, I try to put them in, but I’m more about asking questions.”
