The Juliana Theory have returned with new song and video “Can’t Go Home” - their first new music in over 15 years - today, November 20th via Rude Records/Equal Vision Records. Listen to the track now via your preferred listening service and check out the video here!
"I think people are feeling uncertain right now” said songwriter and vocalist Brett Detar. “I'd say that it's pretty impossible not to feel that way. As humans I imagine we've always innately known that there's no way to turn back the hands of time to simpler days but 2020 has fed us all an uncomfortably large dose of unfamiliarity – ‘wayward stranger days’. Is this uncertainty a new normal? I'm not sure but I've always used music as a coping mechanism and I think this year I've needed it more than at any other point in my life. Many of us are feeling isolated and removed. Joyous collective experiences like live music shows are gone for the foreseeable future along with many of the other communal ways we come together as humans. Longing for that cathartic sense of collective unity one only gets from a gathering of people, we tried our best to capture the sound and feeling of a large group of people singing a simple melody together in unison in the chorus”.

“Making new Juliana Theory music was not really something I thought would ever happen again. If you had asked me 5 or 6 years ago if the band would ever make new music I would have emphatically said ‘no’” Detar continues. “But in 2019 lead guitarist and founding member Josh Fiedler and I were asked out of the blue to do a 30-show acoustic tour playing our old songs in a way we never had before”. Thanks to good timing in between films (Detar is now an accomplished composer for film including "The Devil Inside" and "Brahms: The Boy II"), the duo, who met in a high school guitar class, decided to give the acoustic tour a shot even though their closeness had waned over the band’s hiatus. “Much to my delight the tour ended up being one of the most enjoyable things either of us had done in years. We truly had a great time hanging out and performing together and got along perfectly. If anything, I'd say the time we shared gave us each a new-found respect for one another both as musicians and more importantly as humans. Continuing to make music together after the tour ended just felt right – almost like coming home in a way”.

The Juliana Theory rose through Western Pennsylvania’s post-hardcore scene of the late 90s and early 00s and went on to become one of the most highly cited influences for the next generation of alternative artists. Always willing to push the boundaries, the band unabashedly mixed their punk rock and pop influences into a sound well ahead of their time. “It’s truly an honor to be a part of the team as The Juliana Theory write their next chapter” Equal Vision’s Dan Sandshaw said. “‘Can’t Go Home’ feels modern, yet somehow familiar. This is such an important song for the soundtrack of 2020”.
“Can’t Go Home” is written by Brett Detar and long-time collaborator Benjamin Romans (LP, Carly Rae Jepsen) and co-produced by Courtney Ballard (Jessie J), Benjamin Romans, and Brett Detar and marks a new era for the band. “The Juliana Theory never did shy away from changing our sonic identity from release to release but the emotional core of our songs has always remained the same. At no point have we ever wanted to repeat ourselves and retread the same worn out territory and try and fail at recreating a past era of the band” said Detar. “I like to think this is exactly what The Juliana Theory in 2020 should sound like".
The music video for “Can’t Go Home” was directed by Detar and produced by Jesse Korman, known for his work with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and James Franco’s Pretenders and stars Simone Niamani Thompson, May Daniels, Eric Angelo Espiritu, and Marc Neil Baker. Check out the video and song now and fans can expect more news from The Juliana Theory in 2021.

Puh, ich mochte ja schon immer, wie poppig die waren. Aber das klingt jetzt trotzdem überraschend nach Walk The Moon oder The Killers.

Haha, in der Tat ist Walk The Moon eine Referenz. Catchy, aber richtig gut nicht.

Ach, ich wünschte, in den Charts wären mehr Gitarren anstelle von Synths erlaubt. Ich hoffe mal, dass ich es, so wie Armin, auch mal mögen werde. Nach dem ersten Hören finde ich es ziemliche... naja. Dann lieber ein Revival von "Top Of The World".

wenn sie nach komplett seelenlosem Pop-Mist klingen wollten, haben sie das echt gut hingekriegt.

The Juliana Theory have returned with “Better Now”, kicking off 2021 with a strikingly hopeful song and video. “Better Now” is just the second new track from The Juliana Theory after a 15-year hiatus from making music and kicks off a year that is sure to bring more from the newly reunited Brett Detar and Josh Fielder. Watch the video for “Better Now” and the track is now available via your preferred listening service.

“Recently I’ve had a number of loved ones either going through bad addictions or an especially difficult time. One night, not long ago, a friend that I care about deeply who had been struggling came over to my little music studio”. Detar reflected on the origins of the song. “Although they didn’t say a lot with words it didn’t matter. I knew they were really hurting and I was especially struck by the visceral feeling I got from just a few telling glances. If it’s true that the eyes are the window to the soul then what I saw through that window was a turbulent storm leaving damage in its wake. The look of hurt I saw resonated with me throughout the night and when I woke up the next morning it was still just as resonant. I’m not always the best at speaking things in the right way. I wanted to encourage my friend but maybe I was too afraid to be vulnerable enough to say what I felt. So when I woke I wrote these lyrics - the words I wanted to say to my friend the night before - words of hope. The truth is I needed to speak a lot of these words to myself as 2020 dealt me a level of depression and anxiety that I had never felt before. ‘Better Now’ is a song about what comes after rock bottom. It’s ok to need help. It’s ok to ask for help. It’s ok to feel hopeless. It likely won’t happen overnight but just know that things will get better. ‘Hold on. Don’t speak the word ‘surrender'".

“Better Now” follows the November release of “Can’t Go Home", which marked the band’s first new song in more than 15 years as well as their singing to Rude Records/Equal Vision Records. The video, which was released on New Year’s Day, was made in collaboration with friend and director Jesse Korman, who also produced the expansive and cinematic video for “Can’t Go Home” and is known for his work on James Franco’s Pretenders. “This video tells three separate stories of humans battling their own monsters” Detar says. “Maybe their stories aren’t exactly your story but as the lyric says ‘everyone’s got issues just creeping underneath – secret sleeping demons – no one even sees them – but you can show yours to me.’ Maybe I’m a dreamer but I still believe in the power of art to help us heal so If you’re looking for some encouragement please watch this beautiful video. Here’s to new beginnings".

Watch the video for “Better Now” or listen to the song today. Fans can expect more from the duo in the coming months and can to visit for the most-up-to-date information.

Irgendwie wartet man die ganze Zeit, dass der Song losgeht. Schade, die erste Single fand und find ich klasse.

Waren sie auch. Eindeutig. Und ziemlich gut. "Better now" passt eher zu den alten (weiterentwickelten) The Juliana Theory, haut mich aber nicht um.
