Votive- offered, given, dedicated, etc., in accordance with a vow:
The promise of a "being" in a band incites different things, but most often, it reveals the promises you make with one another, that you never plan to get back.
Bridges Will Break was started 6 years ago by Zach Bauer & Ben Geiger. Along the way, through a multitude of member changes, the band had gained Joey Macasero & Taylor Ashley.
The winding staircase of 6 years bring endless emotions—loneliness, frailty and fanaticism among many. This is to say, through stumbling and disparity, that the band has come cyclical into “what should have been” all those years ago—a complete expression of experience.
Defined by the soft-spoken clarity of Bauer on “Full Circle”, “...and I lost a lot of time, a lot of time displaced, because when you slipped you never healed”, to the trembling grit of Ashley’s “...I’ve had to let you go, what we could’ve been no one will know…but I don’t see you as just another name on a list” on “At Least For Now”, the most obvious thing present is the shared pursuit of finding the best version of yourself.
Bridges Will Break will release their forthcoming ep, Votive, in response to these 6 years of disparity and to “finding the best version” of yourself.
