Singled Out: Prospect Hill

Today Prospect Hill drummer Mark Roberge tells us about their new single "Come Alive" which comes from their third album "Impact". The band is currently on tour supporting the release. Here's the story:

"Come Alive" started out as that bad ass main guitar riff that you hear right from the beginning. I remember Derek our guitarist jamming the part before rehearsal one night and I was immediately hooked.

We worked the songs parts out and arrangement shortly after and had something close to what it is now. I then attacked it lyrically and vocal melody wise.

At the time I had some close people around me getting caught up on prescription medication and it was upsetting and angering at the same time. So I used the song as a canvas to pour those emotions and to send a message out. These people seemed like zombies to me, just walking around all numb and oblivious to real feelings. I wanted them to "Come Alive" and the hook just worked so well. I built the verses around the chorus and then the bridge was the tricky part. I had something initially that just wasn't as awesome as everything else to me.

Our producer Anthony Resta really pushed me to write something big for that bridge and I just went into it with a lot of angst. The bridge ended up being my favorite part once it was all done. Adam our singer really hit what I was trying to convey emotionally during tracking and that's the story! ! BAMO!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and watch the video here and learn more about the band and the album right here!
