Singled Out: The Split Seconds' Cutting Out


The Split Seconds will be releasing their self-titled debut album this summer which is preceded by their new single "Cutting Out". We asked Drew Champion (The Coastals and Boardroom Heroes) to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

"Cutting Out" was written when I my old band The Coastals had just broken up. We had great potential and things were starting to happen for us, but the drummer had a girlfriend in Australia and a constant stream of cash from his mother, so he kept jetting off to another continent whenever we were supposed to go on tour or into the studio. We had been best friends since middle school but after a string of missed opportunities and broken promises, we parted ways.

After that disappointment I moved back into my parent's basement, kind of confused and demoralized. I didn't know what I should do with myself. I was in a daze, trying to figure out a way forward. I kept applying for job after job, without every hearing anything back. I had failed and I was stuck in a rut that I couldn't seem to get out of.

Cutting Out was about finally breaking out of that situation. It's about accepting risk and taking action, because making a bad decision was better than making no decision. Making a mistake was better than remaining stagnant. I took my meager savings, found a slightly less sh*tty job, moved out of my parents basement, and started The Split Seconds.

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