After Scars On 45's EP Give Me Something came out in early 2011, the rock group found themselves on a journey they hadn't intentionally started. The foursome,who hail from Bradford, England, hadn't planned on being an actual band. But after signing with Chop Shop/Atlantic, which scored a song placement on Grey's Anatomy, it was clear that Scars On 45 would be a band and would tour and would make more music.
In early 2011 Danny and Aimee and the rest of Scars on 45 played at Jay Peak for Ski & Ride with The Point, then that summer they starred in one of The Point's Battery Park Free Concerts, winning new friends and fans with each outing.
The band unveiled their self-titled debut album in the spring of 2012 and embarked on what felt like an endless tour. The album, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, earned critical acclaim, and VH1 named the band a "You Oughta Know Artist" leading to their national TV debut on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
Their new album, Safety In Numbers (out October 7th) is a collection of 11 impassioned rock songs reflecting years of hard work. As they wrote, the musicians looked back over the three years they'd spent on the road and what those experiences had meant for them as humans. "Golden," the album's anthemic opening number, and "This Is Not Your Love Song," a surging, hook-laden rocker represent the band's entry points into the collection, both setting the tone for Safety In Numbers. "Crazy For You," the disc's first single, is cathartic and lovely, its propulsive chorus offering a plaintive sense of longing. The album glides through various emotions, revealing the sheer joy of experiencing your dream to the discontent that comes with leaving home and relationships for so many years. "It's about being the happiest you've ever been and then, at points, the most miserable you've ever been," Danny notes. "But for me, a lot of the songs on the album are about either really joyful experiences or the self-awareness of actually being happy. This album is a lot about realizing who you are. The songs, really, explain the last four years of our lives."
After finishing the album, Scars On 45 found both a new record label, Nettwerk, and renewed sense of passion for their music. Safety In Numbers represents pure honesty and hard work, and the culmination of a strange journey the musicians never realized they'd be going on. In the end, though, the band is grateful for strife and tumultuous process involved in arriving at this "Point" because it has allowed them to become who they are.
