Ottawa pop-punks We Were Sharks are taking full advantage of “Shark Week” to let you know they will be reissuing their debut EP, Not a Chance, as an LP through Panic State Records. The release will feature 2 new tracks including an acoustic version of their song “Bridge Burner” which you can listen to below.
Singer Randy Frobel had this to say about the song’s meaning:
“I wrote Bridge Burner about a person who came into my life who I thought I was a friend. Soon after, I found out I was just a stepping stone to help that person get to where they thought they need to be. I had heard lots of stories about this person beforehand but chose not to believe them. There is always two sides to the story and I felt that you should give someone a chance first. Boy was I wrong.
It wasn’t long after that everything started to change. I started seeing and hearing about stuff this person had said and stuff this person had done. Their whole personality had changed. It was all about them. They didn’t care about anyone else. Before I knew it, they were on to someone else who they thought could help them even more. As we sat down to start writing for “Not A Chance” I knew this was something that had to be addressed. I knew I couldn’t be the only one who’s experienced this. I wanted to write an anthem for all those people who have been stabbed in the back. Who have been used and taken advantage of.”
