The Kickback

Contemporary rockers The Kickback are premiering their dynamic track "Will T" from their sophomore album Weddings & Funerals, due out July 14, exclusively on Billboard today (May 12).

The song doesn't waste any time kicking up the energy, starting immediately with the catchy "la-ha-ha-ha" heard in the hook. From there, it builds into an alternative rock gem as lead singer Billy Yost croons, "If you and I went out tonight/ It'd be a disaster for sure/ You'd wake up by me and feel so stupid/ If you and I went out tonight."

Yost tells Billboard, "'Will T' started out as a chunk of a song I wrote when I was 18. I was pretty sure that I didn't deserve to be loved and wouldn't be able to find happiness in a relationship. After I got divorced, I came back to it because -- one way or another -- I set myself up at 18 for what played out a decade later. It seemed funny to me to revisit that song from such a different place in my life and the sheer brute ugly it could relay. There's only so much you can laugh away, but it's worth a shot.”

In addition to jamming out to "Will T," you can also catch the band on tour with Bush. Listen to the track and check out tour dates below and find out how you can be part of the sophomore project through the band's PledgeMusic campaign here.
