Bayside hasn’t released anything new in a while, so when I heard about their new single,  “Time Has Come”, I had to listen to it right away.  It’s off of their upcoming album, CULT, which releases on February 18th.  The band had held a contest for others to cover the song, and those submissions were all fantastic, but nothing even compares to the original.

I had no idea what to expect; a part of me wanted it to be less intense and fast, and kind of more pop-style because I felt that was the direction Raneri’s solo stuff was going in.  And, I was right.  This upbeat, peppy, dancey song is  heavily bass and drum-driven, and it has a deep and smooth feel.  It’s so incredibly well-produced.  The guitars are just sharp enough to make a melodic and powerful mark on the tune.

Anthony’s voice is the best it’s ever been.  It’s warm and lovely, and feels like a hug.  That’s one thing I’ve always loved about Bayside- no matter how hard and heavy their music gets, Anthony’s voice resolves it and leaves it just a bit softer.  It’s so unique and hard to pull off, but they do it perfectly.  As for the lyrics, they’re wonderful.  “We could ask some questions, if we should get to heaven, about when we were alive. Before we take it that far, make plans to go peacefully in the dark.”  The way he sings this is so powerful and polished, and is a perfect way to start it off.

“Thought I’d like to live forever- it just reeks of patience and effort,” a line in the chorus, definitely reminds me of the band’s self-titled album, and Raneri’s vocals on that.  It is so nice to hear them going back to their roots, because that’s when they were at their strongest.

I’m incredibly impressed with this single, and can’t wait for CULT to be released.  Pre-order it here.
