One Step Closer release surprise EP, drop new music video

One Step Closer

Spencer Chamberlain

Official press release:

Out today, Songs For The Willow finds One Step Closer leaning into the most melodic elements of their sound without sacrificing an ounce of energy. The EP's three songs are packed with hardcore grit but propel the band into more anthemic territory than ever. To celebrate the release, One Step Closer have also shared their new music video for EP standout "Turn To Me."

Songs For The Willow is the start of a compelling new chapter for One Step Closer. The band reunited with Eric Chesek (who recorded This Place You Know) along with Jon Markson (whose recent work includes albums by Drug Church, Koyo, and Soul Blind), to step outside of their comfort zone and push the boundaries of their sound. The result is three powerhouse tracks that make the most of One Step Closer's sense of scope and passion. The group will also be keeping their busy schedule, with worldwide touring throughout the Winter and Spring. One Step Closer will be performing in North America, Australia, Southeast Asia, Japan, and more, including shows with Silverstein, Soul Blind, and Life's Question. See full itinerary below.
