We heard the trailer for “bite the bullet” last week, and, in addition to being more than ready to hear PassCode’s second major label single, I was also nervous that region blocking would kind of ruin the party for those of us in North America (we weren’t able to pre-order, for instance).
No such problems with the video’s short version!
One of the problems with having a signature sound is that your material can start to sound, you know, like every other thing you’ve ever done. A certain legendary punk band beloved of me tends to toe that line; a 30+ year career will do that. PassCode flirts with the scenario in just about every release, but I think, despite sticking to a few general song templates, they’ve so far avoided the problem of having recorded the same song twice, and “bite the bullet” itself sounds a lot like it’s mostly pulling better elements from across their catalog to push ahead with a second major label release.
I’m looking forward to the full version on Wednesday.
