Powered by pulsating edm-tinged bassline and a take-no-prisoners, self-actualized chorus, “I’m Not Yours” is a weapon for the masses, a proclamation for the jaded, quickly becoming a fan favorite.
I said “f*ck that” ‘cause I don’t like anything.
Was born in the 21st century.
Raised on whiskey, anxiety, and misery.
F*ck the way you always say you saw the good in me.
The searing 2 and 1/2 minute track is about being done with the bullshit and taking your power back.
“I was in a relationship that made me feel very small, so when it was finally over, I had a lot of work to do to build myself back up again. And writing this song was really the biggest “f*ck you” I could think of,” offers Anastasia Haunt, the band’s powerhouse vocalist/co-author. “PSA: Your feelings are fucking valid and if you have a feeling about something or someone, you’re probably right, trust your Mf instincts!”
“People just make up this version of you in their head and you’re just supposed to be it for them?….Well f*ck that,” adds Maxamillion Haunt, the group’s guitarist/vocalist (and older sibling to Anastasia) who co-penned the anthem.
The single arrives in the midst of the band’s 28-date U.S. Tour as direct support for Mongolian folk rock and heavy metal band The HU. Scouring the entire U.S., visiting all new cities from the run they did with The HU in the fall, the ‘Black Thunder Tour’ is playing to packed theaters every night. Along the way, and at the end of the run, the band will also play five headline shows with tickets on sale now:
Sun, May 15 – Brooklyn, NY – Kingsland (Tix)
Sun, May 22 – Savannah, GA – District Live (Tix)
Tue, May 24 – Columbia, SC – New Brookland Tavern (Tix)
Mon, May 30 – Austin, TX – Come And Take It Live (Tix)
Tue, May 31 – Houston, TX – Scout Bar (Tix)
With the fierce rhythm section of drummer Nick Lewert and bassist Nat Smallish in tow, the quartet are storming the masses with material from their recently released Social Intercourse EP (featuring the breakout song, “Love You Better”), which Alternative Press dubbed, “Pop sensibility and rock ’n’ roll swagger,” while introducing brand new material from their forthcoming debut album co-produced by the band along with Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft (of Escape The Fate, who’s worked with Machine Gun Kelly, Travis Barker, and Avril Lavigne and Yungblud), megahit production crew The Stereotypes (Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Bruno Mars) and Grammy Award nominated producer Brandon Friesen (The Kooks, Sum 41, Three Days Grace), who helped craft the scintillating tension propelling The Haunt’s switchblade crash-test “Make Me King.”
