3 Years Hollow is hitting the road this summer.
The band announced this week that it will embark on a three-week tour across America in support of its latest full-length studio release The Cracks. Also along for the ride for the tour, which kicks off June 23rd in Ringle, Wisconsin, will be Soil and Powerman 5000. 3 Years Hollow recently debuted its new single ‘Chemical Ride’ and its companion video. It is the third single to be released from The Cracks. The album’s first two singles—‘Hungry’ and ‘For Life’—were both top 30 singles. Audiences can see the video for ‘Chemical Ride’ online now via YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2z1bepbfEM. Front man Jose Urquiza explained the concept behind ‘Chemical Ride’ explaining that its message is that of appreciating all that one has and taking every opportunity provided in life. The song is basically about seizing every single opportunity you have, appreciating the things you have around you, because anything and everything can be taken from you instantly,” he said. “It was a situation that I had witnessed and was close to and it was something I felt I had to write about.”
Urquiza expanded on the story behind the song explaining that its creation came from the death of a dear friend and his own mindset at the time of his friend’s passing. “That realization really hit me when my good friend and mentor, Rob Cimmarusti, passed away this last year,” he said. “He was the owner of Real Trax Recording Studios, where we recorded all three of our albums over the past 7 years and where I learned everything I know about music production and recording. I had been so focused on the future, so focused on things that weren’t even right in front of me, and in the end it cost me a lot of time I could have spent with him. There’s no doubt his influence will live on in 3YH for the rest of our lives.”
