Boston pop-punk outfit A Loss For Words have earned a reputation for delivering anthemic songs that walk a fine line between pop and punk that no other band touring today can match. Still, for one reason or another, the group has yet to break through on a national level the way many great bands in their genre have in the past. “Distance” could be the single that changes that, and today the song’s official video found its way online.
Everyone knows that chasing dreams requires far more sacrifice than most are willing to admit, and in “Distance” the weight of those decisions has taken a toll on A Loss For Words. Having spent the better part of the last decade touring and recording, the band’s families have been forced to take a backseat, and now that they’ve grown older the members of the band are having a harder time coming to terms with the physical distance they’ve placed between themselves and loved ones. “Distances” addresses this pain head-on, with talk of regret and feeling alone while surrounded by smiling faces, then drives home a message of hope in the hook that fans and newcomers alike will instantly cling to. You can stream the song and see the video, which uses footage captured on world tours to mirror the message of the song, below.
