How many of us have been complaining about how social media has literally taken over the world or how we complain about how stupid Facebook is. Yet, we are all addicted to it and we can’t stop using it at all. That is the very subject that Candlebox brings up with their brand new single Vexatious. Vexatious is the first single off the band’s sixth studio album Disappearing In Airports which is also the third straight album since the band reformed. Frontman Kevin Martin talked about the track saying, “Vexatious’ is about the social networking-obsessed, unlimited bragging rights society we live in, where people come off as entitled yet so insecure. Whether it’s a pop star feuding senselessly with another pop star, or people who can’t help but to take 50 different selfies in under a minute missing everything that’s happening around them, it’s a sad commentary on life that we can’t escape. Dating apps, bitching apps, secret sharing apps, apps, apps, apps-they all operate outside of any real or authentic human connection. It’s disconnect everywhere and it’s destroying us. No one cares what anyone else thinks or feels. It’s all ‘me, me, me’ and, if you ask me, it’s f–king sad.” The band is also heading out on a US tour which starts Aprril 1ST in Louisville and runs until May 7Th in Marietta, Ohio.
