Pop-punk rockers Dreams of Vertigo recently released a new track and accompanying video called “(Un)Easy Goodbye.” The song’s off the forthcoming album
Reject University, Pt. 2: From Six 2 Midnight, due out October 14, 2016. In an email, the band discusses the meaning of their latest single:
An “(Un)Easy Goodbye” was prompted when vocalist Doug Ferguson saw a man high up on a Freeway sign, ready to jump. Police vehicles were pulled up in a circle around the structure, trying to convince the man to not end it all. Moved by that, Ferguson wrote this song, which deals with issues of depression and suicide.
