from New Jersey Hidden in plain sight released a new single “Ragdoll”, the follow-up to the recent track “Wildfire”.
Formed in 2000, the band signed to Drive-Thru Records and subsequently released 2 full albums on the label before disbanding in 2007. The band reformed for a one-off show in Philadelphia in 2013, and in 2015 they toured to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album, “Life In Dreaming,” as well as the release of the “Animal” EP on Rise Records.
With a catalog of beloved tracks and new music around the world, HIPV looks forward to performing at Furnace Fest 2022 in September, the band’s first show since appearing at the 25 Year Warped Tour Anniversary show in Atlantic City in 2019. .
“Ragdoll” picks up where “Wildfire” and “Temper” left off. It links struggle to clinical and situational depression. This song is a battle between the lows when we don’t even realize we’re there, and the highs, when we’re still having to deal with the daily crises of living in today’s crazy, screwed up world. The lyrics and style of “Ragdoll” provide this Jekyll and Hyde with frantic back-and-forth, heavy breakdowns, quiet, even bridges and catchy choruses. We recommend playing hard and getting that shit off your chest. – Joe Reo
