Singled Out: 3 Years Hollow's Hungry

Today 3 Years Hollow frontman Jose Urquiza tells us about the song "Hungry" from their new studio album "The Cracks," which was produced by Clint Lowery of Sevendust. Here is the story:

The first single 'Hungry' was actually one of the songs that came about organically in our rehearsal space. Tony [Reeves, guitar] had this intro riff and he was playing it about half the speed it is on the record. For some reason I just heard it in my head as this slamming 100 mph song so I sat down behind the drums and we jammed around with it a little.

We were loving it so much that we knew we wanted to finish it that night, so when Chris [Cushman, drums] showed up, he got behind the kit and it was instant. He started playing around with the drum beats and eventually started making it his own and we knew we had a song that was unique and different from everything we had written before.

The song was only about 2/3 done when we entered the studio with Clint Lowery (Sevendust) and that's when we put the final touches on the bridge and the vocal melodies.

There's just something about the way the song starts, right when the guitar starts and that vocal line starts you know something awesome is coming. Gets me every time.

The lyrics for this song started off as one single line that I had written, "The only way to kill me is to always try to keep me alive." Once I had that line I was able to build around that concept. I do that a lot when writing lyrics. I'll find one line or one concept or inspiration that is the foundation of the song and I'll build from there. This song was definitely unique in the way it was written though.

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