Song Of The Week: 6/14/15
Song: "A Part Of Everyone's Disease"
Artist: Sic Waiting
Album: "Anchors Astray"
Place Of Origin: Oceanside, California
Years Active: 2005-present
WHAT I THINK THE SONG IS ABOUT:
"A Part Of Everyone's Disease" appears to be almost like an anthem for slackers. It's an ever-growing group of people, the un-enthused, the non ambitious, the "it's better to just sleep than to get things done" people. To me, the vocalist almost has a "if you can't beat them, join them" attitude and by the end of the song, he seems to be falling in line with the slackers. He became a part of the "disease" if you will. Definitely seems like a lack of ambition or a lack of energy song.
SIC WAITING'S DISCOGRAPHY (Full length albums only):
2005 - "Your Name In Lights" (self released by band)
2010 - "Anchors Astray" (self released by band)
CURRENT STATUS OF SIC WAITING:
Hailing from Southern California, it wasn't a far stretch that the guys in Sic Waiting would be influenced by several of the 90's skate punk bands from neighboring cities, bands like Pulley, Strung Out, No Use For A Name, Lagwagon and Bad Religion. Those influences definitely helped Sic Waiting hone their style of punk rock, while incorporating some of their own style as well. Along with two self released full length albums, Sic Waiting also released two EP's, 2013's "Vices" and 2015's "Highway Miles", the latter which was only sold at the band's live shows. Since 2012, Sic Waiting has been signed to Dang! Records. Lead vocalist, guitarist and chief songwriter Jared Stinson also does a solo acoustic project under the title Dead Frets when he isn't working on new music or touring with Sic Waiting. This is a throwback skate punk band. If you are into that 90's style, Fat Wreck, skate punk bands, then you should definitely give Sic Waiting a listen. Solid band, you will not be disappointed!
