The second single of beloved Chicago pop-punk band off upcoming release ‘Youth’; Out Everywhere On June 21st via SBÄM Records.

Mest has just debuted the second single, ‘Hate You Sober’ (ft. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills). The track delves into the theme of a toxic relationship, depicting how one might endure it by numbing themselves with alcohol, while also exploring the journey towards summoning the courage to break free from the toxicity. Speaking on the recording of the new album, founding member and front man Tony Lovato says: “The drives to the studio were about an hour and 20 minutes long. A lot of my inspiration for this record was found on those drives. I would just listen to all the records that I grew up listening to. Which brought back a ton of memories. It would just put me in another state of mind. The majority of ‘Youth’ was written up in the hills of Los Angeles where I recorded a bunch of our early records. I would get random flashbacks seeing spots I hadn’t seen in years. But as much as I love all the memories and stories of the past, I’m not one to think that the best days are over. I’m creating new core memories and living my life now, so that in 20 years I’ll look back fondly. The same as I do now. These songs are a cheers to the past with a here’s to the future.”

1. WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

2. HATE YOU SOBER

3. BARELY HANGING ON
