Vocalist of Hard As Nails Beatdown Band District 105 Launches Alternative Project [Vietnam]

If you haven’t heard hard-as-nails Vietnamese hardcore metal/beatdown band District 105 you should correct that shit right now first and foremost:

Then you gotta check out the vocalist’s brand new alternative/emo project called Now or Later – whose heartfelt debut single is streaming below.

He was kind enough to give us some more info. “Yeah it’s my emo/alternative project. I grew up in the 2000s era with bands on MTV like Saosin, Silverstein, Story of the Year, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, etc emo bands that people may be familiar with including Hawthorne Heights. So I’ve always wanted to make a project like this showcasing another side of me. I wrote this song while in lockdown like when I was super stressed out. I used to think if I tried my hardest in life and my passion (music) I can achieve my dream and all but I’m now nearly 30 years old and I don’t feel like I’ve gained enough to be proud of myself. So this song is about that. Wondering if, in reality, you’re actually not that special. Just living in some sort of delusional world. Tricking yourself into believing you can do something grand.”

Yo…we know tons of people feeling that way right now including yours truly.
