Singer and Guitarist JT Woodruff shares “While writing and tracking Bad Frequencies, we set up some cameras to see what would happen. We let it unfold, naturally and organically, as the album began to bloom on camera and in session. Set to a musical score and spoken word passages meant to melt away anxiety and stress, Die Colorful is a journey into the making of Bad Frequencies, from our point of view.”
Why do people focus on the two bad times they had out of a hundred good times? I don’t know if it’s just within our nature as human beings. It’s just like all this static comes in, and no matter how beautiful the radio sounds, you always focus on that one little tiny bit of static. You let the bad frequencies creep into your life when really you should just be focusing how good and golden everything is.
“[Just Another Ghost] has a bit of a throwback feel, like throwback Hawthorne Heights. There is a bit of a breakdown, so it’s a bit more of an aggressive song. Those lend themselves to being more fun videos to film for imagery and such, so really that was the determining factor. We wanted to release “Pink Hearts” first because it has a good time vibe to it, and it throws a bit of a curveball to people. It’s kind of bouncy and happy, but typically we’re kind of sad. I’m usually writing about the worst things in the world that could happen to me, but “Pink Hearts” was a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun for the fans. We wanted people to be like, ‘ah, this is cool. They’re ready to be back.’”
