It’s not often we get new music from true out rockers, but Pale Waves, the pop-punk bastions of individuality, have released their new song “Reasons To Live” from their upcoming album Unwanted, out August 12.

Pale Waves have made a name for themselves by inspiring inclusivity and self-discovery and creating space for people hoping to figure out who they are.

The band describes the new track as a “euphoric burst of electric energy about finding someone who leads you out of darkness and gives you a reason to keep going. ”

“‘Reasons To Live’” is about a time when I felt truly drained and incapable of happiness,” shares out frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie on the song. “Then I found someone who showed me a reason to live.”

The new album, Unwanted, is a collection of work informed by Pale Waves’ personal and artistic journey that reaches out into the passionate community of misfits and LGBTQ fans around the band, tapping into darker emotions than ever before while also striking a fresh tone of defiance.

“It was really the only thing this album could be called,” says Baron-Gracie. “It’s bold and unapologetic, and that’s what the Pale Waves community is about.”

“We don’t need to fit a perfect mold, we don’t need to apologize for being ourselves, and we won’t change for anyone,” she adds. “That acceptance is what connects us.”

Pale Waves will be touring this summer opening for 5 Seconds of Summer’s nationwide U.S. amphitheater tour.

Reasons To Live” is available now on all major music platforms.
