“’Common Ground’ sorta paints a vintage picture of America and that ‘dream’ that is promised to be served alongside it,” vocalist/guitarist Michael Doherty explained in a statement. “The tune itself was organically born out of free time in the studio, with it being initially worked out live as band during some downtime. We demoed it as a distorted rock song, but sat on it for a bit before re-recording the track at a later date to imbue the tune with the easy breezy, lighter energy we felt it called for. It’s a critical adventure across the land, observing oneself and others as everyone tries to get along and make it through the day, week, month, and year.”
Wishes to Fulfill arrives September 22 via Run For Cover. Its sibling record, Pick Me Up, Turn Me Upside Down, is scheduled for release in early 2024.
