Anxious have shared a ultra-catchy new single "Down, Down" out today from Run For Cover Records. Produced, engineered, and mixed by Brett Romnes (The Movielife, Front Bottoms, Oso Oso) at The Barber Shop Studios, "Down, Down" showcases the band's seamless combination of hardcore grit, classic emo dynamism, and '90s alternative hooks.

Vocalist Grady Allen discussed the new song saying:

"'Down, Down' is a song that focuses on exhaustion and the repercussions that emotions can have on those closest to you. The last two years have been incredibly strenuous on Anxious. We have toured nonstop, tried to keep up with writing new music, all the while trying to maintain at-home relationships and other personal goals. At a point it just begins to feel like too much. Around this time last year I began coming to terms with these emotions and started wondering whether Anxious was what I needed currently. Having that internal dialogue is stressful--but it came from a genuine place. Where it gets complex though is once you have to share those feelings with your band mates, your friends. Then you’re faced with anger, frustration, and feelings of betrayal--all for emotions that are ultimately out of your control. The song is about having those conversations and deliberating over whether your emotions are relevant or ultimately out of touch."

Anxious' debut album Little Green House was released last year and drew praise from fans and critics alike (including Pitchfork, Stereogum, The FADER, Paste Magazine, BrooklynVegan, and many more), and the band followed it two more fantastic singles "Where You Been" and "Sunsign." Now "Down, Down" picks up where those tracks left off, pushing the band's sound forward and furthering their untouchable knack for anthemic melodies.  

Since the release of Little Green House Anxious have been on the road non-stop, and the band are showing no signs of slowing down. They're currently on tour with The Wonder Years, see full itinerary below.
