After releasing their impressive new album Everything That Got Us Here late last year via Rise Records, SoCal outfit Secrets have returned a mere five months later to release a new surprise single titled “Waste Away.”
Hitting the Internet just in time before they embark on a nine week stint out on the Vans Warped Tour, Secrets’ new track is a personal tale that should certainly hit home with many of the fans who see them this summer.
“‘Waste Away’ is about a friend of mine who I watched struggle with drug addiction,” says frontman Wade Walters. “I always tried to help him break free and overcome but every time I tried I only found myself being held back and dragged down with him. I think everyone has somebody in their lives like this, whether it be a drug, alcohol or really any addiction, we all feel a need to help when we see someone we care about struggling and sometimes it can hold you back from being your best self.”
