Together with American Songwriter, we had the pleasure of interviewing Earshot over Zoom video! 

Billboard-topping hard rockers Earshot, who are best known for such hits as “Get Away,” “Headstrong,” and “Wait,” have come out swinging for 2021 as they unveil their first original song in five years and reveal details for their forthcoming collection of new material. “Been A Long Time” was released on all DSPs in January and was added to Active and Mainstream Rock Radio 1/19.

The brazen, hook-laden new single, which Guitarist Aaron Fink describes as “a melodic, hard-rocking song with dark undertones and smart lyrics,” is about the isolation that everyone has been feeling this year. Ironically, the track itself was written and recorded remotely, with band members quarantining in their homes on separate coasts.

Earshot’s new collection of material is slated to be released throughout 2021 as a series of singles and will mark the group’s first original music since their 2015 independently-released EP Aftermath. Prior to that, their first two albums featured songs charting in the Billboard Top 200 with their debut single “Get Away” reaching #4 on the U.S. Active Rock radio charts and staying in the top 100 for over 64 weeks.

However, since 2015, several of the band members (which also comprise Guitarist Andy Stafford, Bassist John Novak and Drummer Mike Sylvia) have been busy working on solo and/or other projects including Martin who recently sang lead vocals on George Lynch and Jeff Pilson’s cover of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” on the Heavy Hitters album.

Fink, who is the former lead guitarist for Breaking Benjamin and Lifer, joined Earshot in 2020.
