Wicked Vices help keep summer alive with their latest single, “Liquor”. One of the band’s oldest songs finds a spot on their forthcoming album.
While August is definitely coming to a close and fall routines will begin to shape our lives in just a matter of days, it’s important to remember one thing – summer isn’t really over. It’s still hotter than hell and if you choose to believe, there are still plenty of beach days left on the calendar. It’s all about what you make it. It’s all perspective.
Fredericton rock quintet Wicked Vices aren’t giving up on summer vibes just yet. Today, the band released its new single, Liquor, a song bassist Geoff MacDonald describes as representing, “the feeling of summer, being near the ocean and feeling very, very in love.”
Fans of the band will no doubt be familiar with the song. It’s been a regular part of their set from the get-go. Taken from the band’s forthcoming album, In Moderation, this version features additional percussion that serves to broaden the song’s overall summertime feel.
“It’s a summer jam we’ve played many times sitting around a campfire, and I’m usually playing along with my bongos or djembe,” said Ryan Barrie, “so I wanted to add that element to the studio recording to bring out that summer feel.
“Geoff [MacDonald] wrote this song years ago while on a getaway to P.E.I.. We previously recorded it years ago but it wasn’t quite there yet. The song has matured over the years so we decided to include it on this album.”
The release of Liquor comes almost one year to the day since Wicked Vices shared the album’s first single Butterfly. No date has been set for the full album release, but as the title suggests, Wicked Vices are happy to plot the group’s future in moderation.
