A divorced rider, Marty, with a hot rod Dyna and a pocket fulla cash rode out of LA for the last time. Sad to the bone he stopped in Coachella Valley for a Date shake but drank six beers in a biker bar.
His Dyna barked and stumbled into a gas station for refueling. He paid cash at the counter and lifted the high-test nozzle. His heart crushed after his 15-year relationship crumbled, when the love of his life fucked her boss.
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Austin-based indie rockers Arrows To Fire have announced their new single ‘I’m Supersonic’, hot on the trail of their pandemic-inspired single ‘A Million Miles Away’, a guitar-driven track that was inspired by struggles experienced during the current pandemic.
Driven by solid guitar power, their sound is in keeping with a tradition of ’90s-rooted alternative rock, only with a current twist.
Just as the previous single ‘I’m Supersonic’ was mixed by legendary producer Tim Palmer (David Bowie’s Tin Machine, The Mission, HIM, U2, Robert Plant, Tears For Fears, Ozzy Osbourne, Goo Goo Dolls, Pearl Jam).
A US-French collaboration, Arrows To Fire is Austin native John Joyo on vocals and French/American guitarist Chris Lavigne (guitarist, composer), who warns listeners about this single “Get ready for a ride and rock on”.
“Chris and I both love Harley Davidson motorcycles and both love anything that goes fast. “I’m Supersonic” is written from the perspective of a vintage 74 cubic inch Harley Davidson Shovelhead motor,” says John Joyo.
“Even though it’s old, it has guts and will kick your ass every time you ride it. This motor is psyched out of its mind to be ridden hard and can’t wait to melt your face off. We basically channeled the energy of one of the baddest motors ever built into this song. Hopefully people will feel that when they hear it!”
Joyo and Lavigne – both biotech entrepreneurs – first met in 2016 during a meeting about medical devices. They soon discovered a shared passion for alternative rock and strong desire to use music as a forum to address varied subjects – both personal and political. It didn’t take long for them to find common ground in sound and grow a path that led to releasing their 2016 debut album.
The band has since blazed its way onto the alternative rock scene with their 2018 album ‘Here We Go’ and a series of YouTube videos that have racked up nearly a million views collectively, most notably for ‘This is Here’, underlining the song’s call to action for planetary preservation. Indie Rock Cafe listed Arrows to Fire a band to watch after their 2018 South By Southwest debut. Amazon’s music curators were equally impressed, including their cover of Golden Earring’s ‘Radar Love’ in their epic Open Road Amazon Original playlist.
Their songmanship influenced by Pearl Jam, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Foo Fighters, The Presidents of the United States of America, Band of Horses, The Hives, Fu Manchu and Weezer, but Chris Lavigne notes, “It’s important to us that we don’t box ourselves in too much or stick to the same sound all of the time because we like to approach music like we approach life – be adventurous, try new things, and be open to inspiration that could come to you from anywhere or from any type of music. We like to think that comes through in the variety of sounds you’ll hear in our new music.”
‘I’m Supersonic’ will be released on February 18 and will be available across online stores such as Apple Music, and streaming platforms such as Spotify.

Katy Perry has released a new single called Harleys in Hawaii.
The three minute, 15 second track was released on Wednesday along with a scenic, colourful and saucy music video directed by Manson.
The bass-heavy pop tune, which is driven by a subtle acoustic guitar melody, serves as the 34-year-old’s fourth single in 2019 overall.
During an interview on the Zach Sang Show in July, Perry revealed that the inspiration for the song came from a trip to Hawaii with her fiancée, Orlando Bloom, where the couple rented and rode Harley Davidson motorcycles together in the tropical American state.
She said: “I can remember specifically where I was, the street corner I was at (in Oahu), and turning that corner and whispering to Orlando, going “I’m going to write a song called Harleys in Hawaii… and I did.”
Much like her last single, Small Talk — which dropped in early August — Harleys in Hawaii was produced by Charlie Puth and Johan Carlsson.
The pair co-wrote the song alongside Perry and Jacob Kasher, who is another frequent collaborator of the Teenage Dream singer.
Though Perry has released four singles this year, including Never Really Over and 365, it’s unclear if she’s working on a follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2017 album, Witness.
During her chat with host Zach Sang over the summer, the pop star said, “I haven’t really committed to calling anything an album or making an album.”
Perry didn’t rule out the possibility of a new album, however. “If there’s demand for a full body of work, then we’ll see,” she added.
Though she teased a potential album, the pop star admitted she was enjoying releasing singles as their own entities. “I’ve never been able to just put out songs one after the other,” she said.
The Roar singer continued: “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh people don’t put out full records anymore, they just put out songs, what a shame.’ I don’t know if it’s a shame actually, because every song gets it’s own little moment.”
“They get the spotlight, they get a visual,” she added. “Every song, at least to an artist, is somewhat important,” adding that she’s not upset at the people who disagree with her.
Harleys in Hawaii is now available through all major streaming platforms.
