Have you ever heard a song and just known it had the kind of staying power that was needed for a band to take flight?

‘Taking Over’ from their Debut Album is a song built upon addictions with the kind of banging energy and momentum that equally portrays what it’s like to fight addiction.


“It’s essentially a song about me still fucked up well into the next day with a little help from (name your favorite upper). The chorus drums banging is the moment the drugs kick in and your heart starts racing.” – Stephen Richard Mueller – Vocals, Guitar


Releaser’s sound is a mix of a shit ton of influences. My huge influences that have shaped my songwriting are rock bands like Jimmy Eat World, Acceptance, and The Spill Canvas. I grew up on punk though. Bands like Face to Face, Strung Out, and Propagandhi have also had a profound affect on me. I also listened to the record ‘Love’ by The Juliana Theory for a year straight and is a major influence as well. I could also sit here for days and tell you why Third Eye Blind is one of my biggest influences. Every band or song I love I take a part of it with me in my music.
