Trail To Tomorrow is an exciting new pop punk outfit based in Marlboro, New Jersey. Its five members are Elijah Klein, Eric Heitman, Joe DiNardo, Riley McKenna and Dylan Chiyuto. This group has been around for just about a year and not long after celebrating their first anniversary, they secured a deal with Backflip Records. Trail To Tomorrow has been racking up live shows; their most recent outing saw them curtain-raise for acclaimed Chicago punk rockers Knuckle Puck and they will be headlining their next gig which will be held in Kenilworth, NJ. The group has also been putting in studio time. Towards the end of April the quintet released their first ever recording, a four-track EP entitled ‘From the Outside, Looking In’. Like any punk record, the Trail To Tomorrow debut is filled with defiant riffs and an overriding message of personal freedom.
The title track of the EP has both elements in abundance as you will tell from the lyric video below. There’s a lovely harmony of guitars at the beginning before the lead singer begins lamenting his boxed-in life, expressing a desire to break free. “We live our boring lives yet all we try to do is survive, I need to make something of my life…” His voice is almost drowned out by crashing cymbals at the hook as he sings “Sometimes I just feel like I’m on the outside looking in.” There’s a momentary lull at the bridge before the chorus makes a raucous return. If you’ve been looking for a Monday morning pick-me-up, try this song for size and then cop the EP here so you have something for the rest of the week.
