Bayside frontman Anthony Raneri revealed last month he had officially signed to Hopeless Records and would be releasing a brand new solo album later this Summer.
The singer has now released the music video for the first single off the impending record which also happens to be the title track of the album, “Sorry State of Mind.”
The video is really adorable and unique, with the song showcasing a different side of Raneri’s music with the track having a tinge of country to it.
“I have always felt that a good song is a good song whether it’s dressed up like a country song, punk rock song or show tune,” says Raneri about his music.
“That’s what I’ve done with Bayside for years. Take different styles of music and dress them up as punk rock. A lot of Bayside songs started out sounding more like show tunes and folk songs and we put a different spin on them. With the solo music, I let the songs stay where they originate.”
Check out the music video for “Sorry State of Mind.”
Sorry State of Mind will be released on June 30. In support of the new album, Raneri will be hitting the road this Summer with New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert and his side project, What’s Eating Gilbert.
