"Musically, 'The Summer of Hate' became our homage to the sounds of The Damned, The MC5, and probably a bit of the Stooges in there as well," says Courtney Taylor-Taylor of rockers The Dandy Warhols. Talking about their propulsive and powerful new single "The Summer of Hate" whose A.I.-generated video is released today, he adds, "The record was the manifestation of our desire to hear a record of heavy raw punk and metal guitar riffs handled in a way that we felt was cooler than the standard knuckle draggin' man-rock that still tends to dominate a lot of popular culture in America."

Guitarist and songwriter JB Elwood just released his new single "I Tried" and to celebrate, we asked him to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

"I Tried" is a song about being cheated on in a relationship and how difficult it can be to move forward in your life. Even when you are the one that ends the relationship, the memories and experiences from that relationship still haunt you and consume you for a long time. This song was inspired by a personal experience with this person I was head-over-heels for, and I eventually found out she cheated on me. I ended the relationship, but no matter what I would do, I could not stop thinking about the good memories we had. They would play on repeat all day and every day. It took me months to get her out of my head. I was watching one of my favorite movies of all time, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, which helped me come up with the idea for what "I Tried" should be about. This movie is a masterpiece and perfectly captures the power of memories and how these memories shape who you are as a person. I remember writing the beginning lyrics to "I Tried" after watching this movie and then completing the rough draft of the lyrics the next day while laying on a hammock. The lyrics came so naturally to me, and that is when you know that you picked a good topic to write about for an original song. (continue)
