In support of their forthcoming LP What’s Past Is Prologue, alt-emo outfit Free Throw have just released their second new single titled “Today Is Especially Delicious.”
While the title of the track may give the idea that this is a fun and happy song – especially as it may or may not be referencing the 2006 classic Nacho Libre – according to vocalist/guitarist Cory Castro “Today Is Especially Delicious” has a pretty serious message attached to it.
“’Today Is Especially Delicious’ is a song that represents a turning point in the overall story of the album and also in my life,” explains Castro. “Though a fun and catchy song, it represents a time when I was realizing the consequences that my lifestyle was taking on my everyday life and mental health. It’s a song about the perpetuation of bad habits and the vicious cycles that lead people down the wrong path. Ultimately ending in a moment of realization that I was not well. Even though the song is specific to a certain time in my life, I hope that people will be able to understand the message and relate to it, and hopefully still have fun with the song’s fun and upbeat vibe.”
