Toronto pop-punkers Growers just released their brand new single "17 Cigarettes," and to celebrate, we asked Matt to tell us about the song. Here is the story:

"17 Cigarettes" was inspired by the struggle of getting older, especially in your late teen years. Transitioning from being a kid, to having a bit more responsibility and independence is tough. Having a moment to contemplate these thoughts over a cigarette break is what the song is about. As you're taking a long drag, maybe you're thinking about all the important choices you have ahead of you - where you might go to school, if you'll find work, and what sort of impact those choices will have on the course of your life. It's hard not to think about potential regrets, and how much you will eventually change as the years pass by. (continue)
