Los Angeles band, The Interrupters, have released their hard-hitting new song “Jailbird.” Documenting lead vocalist Aimee Interrupter’s personal battle with mental health, the anthemic single marks the group’s third release pulled from their forthcoming 14-track record, In The Wild, set to drop on August 5 via Hellcat/Epitaph Records. While the eagerly-awaited album reflects a story of survival and resilience, each track highlights Aimee Interrupter’s personal struggles and her will to overcome everything that life has thrown her direction.
“This song is about feeling like a prisoner in my own mind. I’ve dealt with a lifetime of severe anxiety, insomnia, depression, PTSD, trichotillomania, and panic attacks,” Aimee Interrupter shares. This song is about how cycles can repeat. Thankfully, screaming these lyrics at the top of my lungs brings relief from the very hell I am singing about.”
