Speaking on the new single, lead vocalist Zach Rose shares: “”We wrote DREAM EATER! before any other track on this project, but it wasn’t until we got to post-production for Carry What You Need that we decided to attempt to finish writing the song. Lyrically, it’s about the importance of meaningful attachment and the difficulties that can come with not being able to comfortably attach or ‘attune’ to people or feelings.

Rose continues, “Seth Henderson (producer, State Champs, Knuckle Puck) really pushed us to embrace unconventional guitar tones and sounds while we were tracking this song. Musically, DREAM EATER! is the ‘weirdest’ song we have written. Somehow Seth was able to reel us back in and ensure that this track is cohesive with the entire project while allowing us to get familiar with being in uncharted territory as artists.”


Right on, Kid have come a long way since debut EP Forever Missing Out. Follow up EP When Words are Enough would go onto garner national acclaim, hitting the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and propelling the band onto the lexicon of the alternative rock/pop-punk fan.

As their sonic styling developed, pacey pop-punk matured into considered, emo-laced alternative rock. This realignment jarred an extra layer of expression on 2021’s debut full-length, Life is a Movie. The release would pick up acclaim from some of music and entertainment’s leading tastemakers, with the band opening a Foo Fighters show, as their star continued to grow across North America and beyond.

Following on from February’s comeback anthem “Bad Feeling”, “DREAM EATER!” given fans another dose of thoughtful, melodic emo. The moreish and introspective offering is Right on, Kid!’s most expansive sonic offering to date, whilst retaining their angsty pop-punk lined alternative rock that simmers with heart and grounded relatability.
