Pop-rock quartet Forever The Sickest Kids will return on June 25 with new album "J.A.C.K.," and after previewing the full-length with the single "Chin Up Kid," the Dallas group has offered another glimpse at its third studio effort. "Nice To Meet You" will be released digitally on Tuesday (May 28), but hear the song now and watch its lyric video, exclusively premiering on Billboard.com:
On "Nice To Meet You," frontman Jonathan Cook, drummer Kyle Burns, bassist/vocalist Austin Bello and guitarist/vocalist Caleb Turman offers a scathing take on the grim reality of the American news cycle, and laugh at myths about rock being dead and cell phones being dangerous. "I've heard a lot of things, but I've seen nothing!" Cook declares on the hook.
"'Nice to Meet You' was a song we wrote about honest feelings about how the media is so filled with negativity nowadays," explains Cook. "We live in the greatest country in the world and these lyrics are about how our country's stereotypes are perceived by outsiders looking in."
Forever The Sickest Kids will support "J.A.C.K." on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, marking their fourth time on the annual trek. The album was produced by Mike Green (Paramore, New Found Glory) and marks their debut on Fearless Records.
