We have watched from the beginning as the Blind Season story unfolded. Since their debut single “The Dark Bedroom” was released in November of last year, the Rock & Roll trio has revealed a deep, dark 90’s Alternative influenced sound. Band leader, guitarist and vocalist Shane Sigro’s lyrics tend toward dark and cryptic scenes from painful memories. It is Rock & Roll as catharsis, in the same vein as Grunge/Alt giants like Kurt Cobain or Billy Corgan.
“The Torch And The Library” is a new single and video from Blind Season. This time the band delivers their signature Indie Rock sound with a slightly sharper Alt/Metal edge. The guitars have a little more Marshall in them. The riffs are a little lower and crunchier. The song rocks hard as Sigro delivers a dark and visual string of memory and imagination.
This was a riff I had for years saved in my phone with the chorus melody hummed with it. I waited on it for so long until a day came where I had nothing else to work on because I knew it would be a fun song. In hindsight the lyrics come across as an “all bets are off” kind of tone which is why it’s the first song on the albumShane Sigro
