SET IT OFF released Midnight in 2019. The album demonstrated a depth and breadth of musicianship, as the band incorporated live strings, live horns, and a live gospel choir into the album. Fan favorites included “Killer in the Mirror,” “Midnight Thoughts,” “Dancing With the Devil,” and “Hourglass.” The band followed with After Midnight, an EP of B-sides.
Now, Set It Off are embarking on the final chapter for this body of work and period in their history with the release of the appropriately titled Midnight (The Final Chapter). Midnight (The Final Chapter) is comprised of Midnight, the After Midnight EP, and three additional acoustic tracks. It’s available for pre-order here.
To celebrate the announcement of this victory lap for the album, the threesome has shared the acoustic version of the lead single “Killer in the Mirror.”
“’Killer in the Mirror’ seems to always apply to my life,” says singer Cody Carson. “I’ve developed more and more trust issues as I grow — almost as a protective measure. When I first wrote this song, it came from a place of pure anger, and sure, that anger is there. But as your emotions develop, so does your perspective. I wanted to show the sad side of the message of ‘Killer in the Mirror’ and really draw out/expand the emotional spectrum by introducing the orchestra towards the end to almost give a feeling of optimism. As if to say, ‘People will try to hurt you, but you’ll make it out alive every time.’“
